INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- The last two Canadian women exited the BNP Paribas Open on Tuesday, with Eugenie Bouchard and Aleksandra Wozniak both suffering fourth-round defeats. Two forehand errors spelled the end for Montreals Bouchard, who lost to sixth-seed Simona Halep of Romania 6-2, 1-6, 6-4. Australian Open winner and top seed Li Na defeated Wozniak of Blainville, Que., 6-1, 6-4, with the Canadian saving ten match points. Li double-faulted on four of the potential match-winners in a dramatic concluding game. Wozniak, ranked 241 after missing play over the past 18 months due to a shoulder injury, went down fighting in just over 90 minutes as a return sailed long over the baseline. Wozniak lost the opening set in 32 minutes but pinned Li down with a 3-0 lead in the second before the Chinese player fought back. The Canadian will prepare for qualifying rounds set for early next week in Miami after using up her final protected tournament entry for this event. Milos Raonic, Thornhill, Ont., will bid for a quarter-final berth on Wednesday when he plays fifth-seeded Wimbledon winner Andy Murray. The 20-year-old Bouchard, making her debut in the main draw at the Tennis Garden after losing in the 2013 qualifying rounds, set up a match point for Halep with a forehand wide and drove another one out a point later to end the one-hour 37-minute battle. Bouchard, ranked a career-high 19 after her Australian Open semi-final, fired seven aces but was weighed down by six double-faults. "I didnt start so great, but I served better in the second set," said Bouchard. "I had a few easy holds but some tough battles as well. I could have done with a few more first serves. I tried to go for my shots in the rallies. but I didnt take my chances." Bouchard was stunned in the opening set as Halep raced away to a 5-0 lead before Bouchard could make an impression in what turned into a routine 30-minute effort. Bouchard rallied in the second as her form returned after the slow start, levelling the sets at one each with two breaks of her seeded opponent, Bouchard then lost a third-set break as Halep squared at 4-all. Halep put her opponent under pressure on serve in the tenth game, with Bouchards pair of forehand errors sending her to defeat. "She was very solid, exactly what I expected," said Bouchard, who will now head to her training base in Florida to prepare for the Miami tournament which starts next week. "She put the pressure on me today, shes won a lot of titles so she knows how to battle. "Maybe I dont deserve it, but Ill take a day off and get back to practise. Florida is like my second home and Im looking forward to a good tournament.

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Andrew Wiggins is from Canada, Wayne Selden from Massachusetts and Joel Embiid from the African nation of Cameroon. None of them grew up around the Kansas basketball program. None of them grew up around the Jayhawks rivalry with Kansas State. So all week, the trio of freshmen -- along with the rest of the Jayhawks -- were subjected to videos on the rivalry. Kansas coach Bill Self wanted to drive home the importance that those games against the Wildcats have taken on over the years. The message must have come through quite clearly. Wiggins scored 22 points, Selden added 20 and the No. 18 Jayhawks routed the 25th-ranked Wildcats 86-60 on Saturday for their sixth straight win in the series. "We wanted to put them in a mindset of the energy and the type of emotion this game has been played with in the past," Self said. "It might have helped. I dont know." It sure seemed as if it helped. Embiid contributed 11 points and nine rebounds, and Perry Ellis scored 12 as Kansas (11-4, 2-0 Big 12) shot 56 per cent and committed just seven turnovers. "It just shows were the dominant team in Kansas," Wiggins said. The Wildcats (12-4, 2-1), who had won their last 10 games, lost their seventh straight at Allen Fieldhouse and for the 48th time in the last 51 meetings. Nino Williams had 12 points and Thomas Gipson scored 10 to lead Kansas State, but top scorer Marcus Foster was held to just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting. They have great depth. Theyve got so many weapons," Wildcats coach Bruce Weber said. "You try to take away something and you have to give something, and they made shots." Just about the only thing that didnt go right for Kansas came late in the game, when Embiid threw an elbow that clipped Williams in the face. Embiid got a technical foul and was ejected, but a Big 12 official said he would not be suspended for Monday nights game at Iowa State. "Regardless of what took prior, you have to be tough enough to think, Next play," Self said. "Thats frustrating to me that it would happen, even if it was a situation where itt was retaliatory, and I have no idea if it was.dddddddddddd" Kansas State actually hung tough through the first 10 minutes of the game, finding a basket every time the frenzied crowd inside Allen Fieldhouse reached a throaty roar. But a couple of foul shots by Selden and a 3-pointer by Conner Frankamp set the Jayhawks off and running. Tarik Blacks basket in the paint finished off a 9-2 surge, and a put-back by Ellis off his own miss a few minutes later wrapped up another 9-2 run and gave Kansas a 33-18 lead. Selden, coming off a career-best 24 points at Oklahoma, knocked down a 3-pointer just before the halftime buzzer to send the Jayhawks into the locker room with a 45-28 cushion. Suddenly, the 278th meeting between the schools looked like so many before it. How impressive was the first half for Kansas? The Wildcats had been holding opponents to just 53 points per game during their 10-game win streak, yet allowed the Jayhawks to pile up 14 assists without a turnover and shoot 65.5 per cent from the field. As if things werent going perfectly enough for Kansas, Embiid knocked down a 3 from the top of the key to open the second half -- hed missed the first two tries of his career. The Jayhawks partied hard the rest of the game. There was the alley-oop dunk by Wiggins off a feed from Selden, and a nimble post move by Embiid that resulted in another dunk. And even when Wiggins threw the ball away for the Jayhawks first turnover, he atoned for it with back-to-back 3-pointers for a 58-34 lead. Then came Wiggins biggest highlight, a one-handed slam that went through the rim with such force that the ball bounced the entire length of the floor the other direction. In a sign of just how badly things were going for the Wildcats, they were hit with three charging fouls in a span of just a few minutes in the second half. Its become rare enough to see one offensive foul in a game the way such calls are being made this season. "It was an offensive game and were not an offensive team yet," Williams said. "Were a defensive team and we let the offence dictate the game." ' ' '
