STANFORD, Calif. — Stanford really does have UConn’s number.

When you know it’s time for league play to begin: At one point in your final nonconference game, your opponent has 12 turnovers, zero assists, nine shots in 12 minutes and its coach has screamed out at least eight set plays his team can’t execute or really has no idea what they mean.
Jamie Smith scored 15 points and pulled down four rebounds as the UNLV women’s basketball team beat Hawaii 63-48 in the final game of the Wahine Invitational in Honolulu on Thursday.
His team didn’t win the tournament title, but Liberty boys basketball coach Pat Welby couldn’t help but smile as he left the locker room Thursday.
Whether it was an emotional hangover from an extended holiday break or just the continuation of a team-wide shooting slump, UNLV appeared sluggish until Justin Hawkins provided a surge of energy.
