STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Chiney Ogwumike had 18 points and 12 rebounds for her seventh straight double-double, leading No. 4 Stanford past Arizona 73-43 on Friday night.
Joslyn Tinkle added 15 points for the Cardinal (21-2, 10-1 in the Pac-12), who won their seventh straight. Mikaela Ruef scored 11 points and had 10 rebounds for her first career double-double.
Alli Gloyd scored 13 points to lead the Wildcats (11-11, 3-8 Pac-12), who lost their sixth straight and have dropped eight of 10 overall since opening the season 9-3.
Ogwumike missed three of her first four shots, allowing Arizona to remain within striking distance midway through the first half. She made four of her next five shots, however, coinciding with a 17-6 run that gave Stanford a 31-19 halftime advantage.
Stanford has held its last 41 opponents to less than 70 points, an ongoing school record.
Davellyn White, the Pac-12′s active scoring leader, was held below 10 points for the first time this season, and the first time since last year’s matchup with Stanford, a span of 31 games. She has 1,932 career points.
White did set a school record with her 119th career start. She had been tied with Dee Dee Wheeler.
The Cardinal eventually built a 20-point advantage within the first six minutes of the second half and cruised the rest of the way, beating the Wildcats for the 22nd consecutive meeting. Arizona last beat Stanford in 2004.
Stanford played without starting guard Toni Kokenis, who sat out as a precaution for an undisclosed illness.
The Cardinal, who lead the conference in three-point field goal percentage defense, limited the Wildcats to 1 of 14 from long range.
