PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Candice Wiggins had seen the moment before.
Wiggins and her Stanford teammates were watching last season as Duke senior Lindsey Harding went to the free throw line with a tenth of a second left. Harding missed both shots and Rutgers upset the top-ranked Blue Devils to advance to the NCAA Tournament regional final.
At the line with a tenth of a second left Sunday night, the preseason All-American avoided that same fate.
Wiggins made her free throws to lift No. 7 Stanford to a 60-58 victory over No. 3 Rutgers.
Never miss a local story.
"We watched the game and saw the clips," Wiggins said. "I'm friends with Lindsey and felt for her."
With the game tied at 58, Essence Carson missed a 3-pointer with five seconds left. Stanford grabbed the rebound, and the ball ended up in Wiggins' hands. Epiphanny Prince reached at her 80 feet from the basket, sending Wiggins to the foul line.
Wiggins confidently hit both shots.
"Every time I take free throws in practice, I try to simulate it's a game," she said. "I love to know if the game is on the line for free throws, I know we are going to win the game because I put that pressure on myself."
The scene was all too familiar to Rutgers coach C. Vivian Stringer, who didn't want to discuss whether the play was a foul.
"It is what it is," Stringer said. "It was kinda prophetic. Same as the girl from Duke. The odds of something like that happening are slim to none, especially in our home building."
Wiggins scored 19 points. Jayne Appel and Kayla Pederson combined for 33 points and 29 rebounds for Stanford (2-0).
NO. 4 MARYLAND 76, NO. 6 OKLAHOMA 66, at Chapel Hill, N.C. -- Marissa Coleman had 20 points and 12 rebounds as the Terrapins (2-0) beat the Sooners (0-1) in the second game of the State Farm Tip-Off Classic. Maryland took command by outscoring Oklahoma 30-9 in the final 12 minutes of the first half.
Ashley Paris scored 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting for the Sooners (0-1), and Courtney Paris had 11 points and 10 rebounds to extend her NCAA-record streak of games with double figures in both categories to 62. She also broke the school record for career rebounds with 1,075, breaking Molly McGuire's 25-year-old mark of 1,071.
NO. 12 OREGON 80, PACIFIC 64, at Eugene, Ore. -- Tajuan Porter scored 28 points and Malik Hairston 20 to help the Ducks (2-0) defeat the Tigers (1-1) in the World Vision Invitational.
Porter, who set a school record with 110 3-pointers as a freshman last season, made his fifth 3 of the game with 6:50 remaining to spark a 9-1 run that put the Ducks up 69-51 with 5:22 to play.
Steffan Johnson led the Tigers with 22 points. Chad Troyer scored 14, and East Union High graduate Michael Nunnally had 10 points and two blocked shots.
