No. 5 Stanford women cruise past Washington, 83-60
February 28, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

STANFORD — Chiney Ogwumike had 32 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 5 Stanford in an 83-60 victory over Washington on Thursday night.

Bonnie Samuelson added 14 points for Stanford (27-2, 16-1 Pac-12), while Lili Thompson had 11 and Amber Orrange 10. The Cardinal evened an 87-82 loss to the Huskies on Feb. 9 that snapped Washington’s 14-game losing streak to Stanford.

Ogwumike fell four points shy of tying her career high, reached twice this season. The senior forward increased her career scoring total to 2,543, leaving her 87 shy of breaking former Stanford star Candice Wiggins’ Pac-12 record. Ogwumike also had her 21st double-double of the season.

Kelsey Plum led the Huskies (16-12, 9-8) with 21 points. Talia Walton added 12 and Jazmine Davis 10.

Ogwumike scored 21 points in the first half, leading Stanford to a 45-32 lead at the break. She made 9 of 13 shots, most of them from point-blank range, having her way against Washington’s zone defense, and hit 3 of 4 from the line.

Walton led Washington with 12 first-half points, making all four of her 3-point shots.

Stanford led 32-26 with 8:21 left in the first half after Davis made two free throws. But the Cardinal went on an 11-0 run, holding Washington scoreless for 6:19 and building a 43-26 lead.

Ogwumike started the run, scoring three straight baskets in less than a minute. Thompson nailed a 3-point shot, increasing Stanford’s lead to 41-29, and Mikaela Ruef, who had a game-high 14 rebounds, connected from 18 feet to cap the spurt.

The Huskies finally ended their drought with 2:02 left in the half when Mercedes Wetmore made a 3-point shot. Walton followed with a 3, cutting Stanford’s lead to 13 points.

Stanford opened the second half on a 16-4 run, increasing its lead to 61-36. Ogwumike scored seven points during the spurt, while Samuelson made two 3s, and Thompson one.

The Huskies’ winning formula at Seattle against Stanford was to pack the inside, contain Ogwumike and dare her teammates to try and beat them from outside. Ogwumike scored 23 points, but Stanford went 9 for 41 on 3s.

This time, Washington had no answer for Ogwumike, and Stanford shot 32 for 68 from the field, including 9 for 24 on 3s.
