SPOKANE, Washington (Ticker) -- Jackie Stiles scored 41 points as Southwest Missouri State ousted top-seeded Duke, 81-71, in the NCAA Tournament West Region Semifinal.

The leading scorer in NCAA Women's Division I history, Stiles surpassed the record for most points in a single season early in the first half. She made 15-of-22 shots and scored 25 points after halftime to help the Lady Bears pull away in the final 10 minutes and earn their first regional final appearance since they went to the Final Four in 1992.

Southwest Missouri State trailed, 42-36, at haftime but held Duke (30-4) to 37 percent (11-of-29) shooting in the second half, including 0-of-11 from 3-point range.

The Lady Bears (28-5) made 15-of-21 free throws in the second half to distance themselves while Duke's offense struggled over the final 10 minutes.

Tara Mitchem added 17 points and was the only other Lady Bear in double figures. Melody Campbell did not score in 28 minutes but dished out five assists and collected three steals.

Carly Deer scored seven points on 1-of-7 shooting but grabbed 11 rebounds for SW Missouri State, which held a 40-32 edge on the glass and will face Washington in the next round.

Duke's fast-paced offense was non-existant in the second half and its 3-point ability dissapeared down the stretch.

Freshman Alana Beard scored 27 points on 10-of-15 shooting, but committed six of the Blue Devils' 22 turnovers. Georgia Schweitzer scored 11 points but made just 1-of-6 3-pointers and turned the ball over eight times.

Iciss Tiliss had 14 points and eight rebounds while Rometra Craig endured a terrible game, scoring four points on 2-of-13 shooting.
