Buffs remain at No. 21 in AP Top 25

- — Denver Post wire reports

A loss in the desert didn’t hurt the Colorado women’s basketball team in the national rankings.

Despite a 61- 42 loss at Arizona on Sunday, the Buffaloes remained at

No. 21 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 rankings released Monday. CU (21-6, 12- 4 Pac-12) had a five-game winning streak snapped in Tucson, but this is the first time the Buffs have been ranked in three consecutiv­e weeks since a five-week run in November and December of 2016.

The Buffs will look to rebound on Thursday against No. 3-ranked Stanford (26-3, 14-2) at the CU Events Center (3 p.m., Pac12 Network).

“We’ve got to brush it off right now,” CU guard Tameiya Sadler said after Sunday’s loss. “We can’t really be sad about it. You just have to go in tomorrow and really lock in on Stanford and the next couple of scouts that we have because that’s the next biggest game that we have.”

No. 3 Stanford 71, No. 17 UCLA 66

STANFORD, CALIF.>> Cameron Brink scored 25 points and made all 15 of her free throws, the last of which put Stanford ahead for good, and the Cardinal beat UCLA on Monday night in their final regular-season home game.

Brink swatted two more shots to give her 102 blocks for the season, and her 15 free throws were the most without a miss by a Stanford player since at least 1999. Haley Jones added 18 points and converted a layup with 1:22 remaining to put the Cardinal ahead by three.

Stanford (26-3, 14-2 Pac12) has won four straight and is closing in on a third straight Pac-12 regularsea­son title with games remaining this week at

No. 21 Colorado and No. 8 Utah.

Lina Sontag made a 3 to put UCLA (21-7, 10- 6) ahead 65- 64. Brink’s final two free throws made it 66- 65 with 1:53 left.

No. 16 Ohio State 74, No. 12 Michigan 61

ANN ARBOR, MICH.>> Rikki Harris scored a careerhigh 23 points while adding five assists and seven steals, Taylor Thierry had 15 points and Ohio State completed a season sweep of Michigan.

Taylor Mikesell made four 3-pointers and scored 12 points for Ohio State (23-5, 12-5 Big Ten). Cotie Mcmahon had seven points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Leigha Brown had a career-high 36 points and nine rebounds for Michigan (20-7, 10- 6).

MEN No. 3 Kansas 63, No. 24 TCU 58 FORT WORTH, TEXAS >>

Gradey Dick scored 19 points, Kevin Mccullar

Jr. had 15 and Kansas extended its winning streak to five games with a win over TCU.

Jalen Wilson had 12 rebounds for the Jayhawks (23-5, 11- 4 Big 12), who began the night tied with idle eighth-ranked Texas for the conference lead. They have won seven of eight games since a three-game losing streak that included a 23-point home loss to the Horned Frogs.

Damion Baugh missed a potential tying 3-pointer with five seconds left for TCU (18-10, 7-8). Shahada Wells then missed a follow-up layup before McCullar was fouled and made two free throws.

Not even an appearance from Heisman Trophy runner-up Max Duggan could get the Horned Frogs over the hump.
