    Harmon, Smith help Stanford hold off late UCLA rally

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jillian Harmon had 14 points and three steals, Brooke Smith added 13 points and Stanford (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 14 AP) withstood a comeback to beat UCLA 68-59 on Friday.

    J.J. Hones and reserve Jayne Appel added 11 points apiece for the Cardinal (7-3, 2-0), who led by as many as 23 points in the second half before UCLA used a 19-2 run to draw within six. But that's as close as the Bruins would get.

    Noelle Quinn led UCLA (7-7, 1-1) with 18 points and eight rebounds and Lindsey Pluimer added 15 points.

    Stanford led 36-28 at halftime and scored the first 10 points of the second half for an 18-point lead. It was 59-36 when the Bruins suddenly got hot, cutting the Cardinal's lead to 61-55 on Tierra Henderson's 3-pointer with 4:35 remaining.

    Appel scored to make it 63-57 with 2½ minutes left, and a jumper by Hones with 59 seconds to play gave the Cardinal a 10-point lead.

    Stanford shot 30-of-57 (52.6 percent), while UCLA went 21-of-62 (33.9 percent).
