HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Kiki Iriafen had 30 points and 17 rebounds, and No. 4 Stanford beat No. 13 Florida State 100-88 on Friday night in the championship game of the Ball Dawgs Classic.

Stanford (6-0) overcame an early seven-point deficit thanks to defensive adjustments against the up-tempo Seminoles and outscored Florida State 72-54 over the final three quarters. The Cardinal's point total was their season high.

Iriafen was named tournament MVP after combining for 44 points and 26 rebounds in two games.

Cameron Brink finished with 19 points, nine rebounds and six blocked shots for the Cardinal before fouling out. Hannah Jump added 17 points and Elena Bosgana scored 16.

Ta’Niya Latson led Florida State (5-1) with 23 points. O’Mariah Gordon scored 19 points, Sara Bejedi added 13, Alexis Tucker 12 and Makayla Timpson 10.

The Cardinal opened the third quarter on a 12-2 run, including a pair of 3-pointers from Jump.

Iriafen scored 12 of her points in the third, while Brink facilitated things at both ends of the floor with five rebounds and three blocked shots.

Florida State hit 15 of 28 (53.6%) from the floor in the opening quarter, getting 10 points from Latson and opening a 34-28 lead.

An adjustment with its perimeter defense helped Stanford in the second quarter. The Cardinal took a 52-48 lead into halftime.


Florida State has had at least four double-figure scorers in all six of its games this season.
