The Cardinal (28-5) slipped to fourth in this week’s AP Top 25 rankings, while USC climbed to third.

Brink has accumulated 406 blocks in her career, recently joining the ranks of Division I players with 400 career rejections and becoming one of 10 players nominated for the Naismith Defensive Player of the Year award.
