Cambage hotter, but Moore's team wins

It was an amazing shootout between two WNBA stars in China on Saturday.

Maya Moore scored "only" 43 points, but Shanxi, her team, defeated visiting Zhejiang 112-96 in the Women's Chinese Basketball Association Finals. The victory gave Shanxi a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series.

Moore, the 6-foot forward who plays for the Lynx in the summer, had a triple-double with 43 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. She also had four steals and a block and played all 40 minutes.

But Liz Cambage, strictly as an individual, outshined Moore. The 6-8 center who plays for Tulsa scored 54 points and had 11 rebounds. She was 18-for-18 from the floor -- that's not a typo -- and 18-for-19 from the free-throw line. Cambage also blocked two shots.

The fourth game of the WCBA Finals will be held Tuesday at Hangzhou, a neutral site. Why's that? Remember that after Game 1 in Zhejiang, when Cambage fouled out and the home team lost, fans attacked the officials. And the WCBA came down hard on Zhejiang -- no home games for a year.

Swarm loses on road

Colorado beat the Minnesota Swarm 15-9 in the National Lacrosse League. John Grant Jr., the NLL's MVP last season, had five goals and six assists for 11 points for the host Mammoth (2-2). Rookie Shayne Jackson led the Swarm (1-3) with one goal and four assists. Three of his teammates had three points: Jordan MacIntosh had two goals and one assist, Kiel Matisz and Ryan Benesch each had one goal and two assists.

U swimmers sweep

Both the Gophers women's and men's swimming and diving teams went to Madison, Wis., for multi-team meets and beat everyone there.

The No. 16 women remained undefeated, beating No. 19 Wisconsin 210-143, No. 25 Purdue 268-85 and Illinois 291-62 in the Quad Duals.

Freshman Kierra Smith led the Gophers with two victories. She won the 400 individual medley in 4:22.51 and the 200 breaststroke in 2:14.49. Haley Spencer came in second in the 200 breaststroke in 2:16.37. Other winners for the U were sophomore Becca Weiland in the 100 butterfly in 53.77, Kiera Janzen in the 500 freestyle in 4:51.50 and Sarah McCrady in 1-meter diving with a score of 297.85.

• The No. 15 men's swimming and diving team improved to 7-1, beating No. 18 Purdue 209-144 and Wisconsin 196-157 in the Triple Duals. C.J. Smith earned the only first-place finish for the Gophers in the 500 freestyle in 4:26.34.

Etc.

• The Gophers baseball team opened its 125th year as a varsity sport by beating a team of alumni 4-1 at the Metrodome. Michael Handel went 2-for-2 against an alumni team that included Twins pitchers Cole De Vries and Glen Perkins and Reds infielder Jack Hannahan.

• Jon Lehman of the Gophers men's indoor track and field team won the weight throw in the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational in Lincoln, Neb. His throw was 20.79 meters.

• Louisville won the top four singles positions in straight sets and beat the Gophers women's tennis team 4-2 in Blacksburg, Va. Julia Fellerhoff beat Natalia Pintusava 6-4, 6-3 at No. 1 singles, and Rebecca Shine rolled at No. 2, beating Tereza Brichacova 6-3, 6-0.
