ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) With leading scorer Lili Thompson sidelined with an illness, Stanford turned to other scoring options.

Reserve Karlie Samuelson picked up the slack, scoring 23 points to help the No. 5 Cardinal to a 70-65 win over New Mexico on Monday night.

"I thought she played really great," Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said. "She's usually kind of our sixth player. I love her energy off the bench. You can depend on her. She started us off really well. She's a great shooter but she's a great competitor."
