Stanford leads California after the second day of the Pac-12 women’s swimming and diving championships at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.

Four-time Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin won the 500-yard freestyle for Cal in 4 minutes, 35.73 seconds.

Stanford’s Maya DiRado won the 200 individual medley, just nipping Cal’s Celina Li. USC’s Kasey Carlson won the 50 free in 21.74 seconds. Arizona won the 200 free relay.

The Washington State Cougars are in eighth place out of nine teams at the meet, which continues through Saturday.

SPU claims at least share of GNAC title

Senior Patrick Simon scored 16 of his 21 points during the first half Thursday for Seattle Pacific, which defeated Central Washington 91-59 to claim at least a share of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference men’s basketball regular-season championship.

The first-place Falcons (23-5) improved to 14-3 in league play, one game better than second-place Western Washington’s 13-4 mark. If the SPU men win at Northwest Nazarene or WWU loses at Western Oregon in Saturday’s regular-season enders, the outright conference title is theirs.

This the fifth GNAC championship for the Falcons since the league was formed in 2002. They captured the 2010 and 2006 conference titles outright and shared the league crown in 2007 and 2002.

Thursday’s win gives SPU the No. 1 seed for next week’s GNAC tournament. The Falcons will have first-round bye. Central (11-14) suffered its fifth straight loss and dropped to 7-10 in GNAC. The loss prevents the Wildcats from qualifying for the six-team conference tournament field.

Simon, the nation’s leader in three-point accuracy at 53 percent, nailed 5 of 7 shots beyond the arc. David Downs added 13 points for the Falcons.

More Basketball

Kylie Burns pumped in 19 points, getting 15 of those from behind the three-point arc, and Alaska Anchorage went on a decisive 11-0 run as the second half wound down to beat Seattle Pacific in a Great Northwest Athletic Conference women’s game, 76-65. The loss in Brougham Pavilion dropped the Falcons (17-8, 10-7 GNAC) into a fifth-place tie with Saint Martin’s heading into Saturday’s regular-season finale against Alaska Fairbanks. Both the Falcons and Seawolves are bound for next week’s conference tournament at Saint Martin’s in Lacey.

Jeffrey Parker scored a game-high 16 points, 10 during a decisive run to open the second half, as Western Washington earned a first-round bye at next week’s conference tournament with an 80-56 victory over Saint Martin’s in a GNAC men’s contest. Guard Robert Harris Jr. and center Austin Bragg each had 15 points for the Vikings (19-6, 13-4).

Baseball

• The Gonzaga baseball team lost 2-0 in a pitching duel against Oklahoma State. The Zags (2-7) have dropped four consecutive games. With a double, Cory Le­Brun has reached base safely in 16 straight games (counting last season).
