(AP) PULLMAN, Wash. - Chiney Ogwumike had 28 points and 13 rebounds to help No. 4 Stanford clinch at least a share of the Pac-12 conference title with a 72-50 win over Washington State on Saturday.
Ogwumike recorded her 24th double-double of the season and broke Stanford’s single season rebound record with (381). The previous record (376) was set by her sister Nnemkadi Ogwumike in the 2009-10 season.
Ogwumike scored 22 points in the first half to give Stanford (28-2, 17-1 Pac-12) a comfortable 35-21 lead at the half. The Cardinal opened the second half with a 13-4 run 48-25. Stanford would extend the lead to 30, 63-33 at the ten minute mark and put the game out of reach. The Cardinal would share the title with California if the Golden Bears beat Washington later Saturday.
Lia Galderia led Washington State (10-19, 6-12) with eight points and seven rebounds.
