STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Alanna Smith's career day meant so much for far more than just basketball.

Sure, Stanford celebrated the Australian dynamo's brilliance on the court Sunday in an 85-64 victory by the sixth-ranked Cardinal against Washington State that helped Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer reach her 900th win in 33 seasons at the school, yet the Cardinal also cheered and supported survivors of human trafficking after Smith organized an awareness day on the issue.

Smith scored a career-high 34 points in Stanford's 20th straight home victory and the school's first Human Trafficking Awareness Game. She shot 13 for 17 with four 3-pointers and also had 15 rebounds - one off her career best - in her third 30-point performance of the season.
