BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Theresa Plaisance had 19 points and 11 rebounds on Thursday night to lead No. 15 LSU to a 71-60 victory against Auburn.

LSU led 62-56 with 3:46 to play and used a 9-0 run to build a 15-point advantage before Auburn scored two meaningless baskets in the final 40 seconds.

After battling back-and-forth for much of the first half, LSU (15-4, 4-2 SEC) trailed 36-35 at halftime. Raigyne Moncrief's layup 30 seconds into the second sparked a six-point LSU run for a 41-36 lead.

Auburn (11-8, 2-4) battled back to a 41-41 tie, but LSU went on a 17-3 run to take a 58-44 lead with 7:24 left in the game.
