Stanford (15-1, 4-0 Pac-12) – 55 • 32 = 87
Colorado (11-4, 1-3 Pac-12) – 38 • 39 = 77

Stanford is now 11-4 all-time against Colorado, and has won six in a row against the Buffaloes after Sunday’s 87-77 victory. It is also Stanford’s fourth win against a Top-25 team, giving the Cardinal a 4-1 record against ranked teams this year.

This weekend’s road sweep of Utah and Colorado brought Stanford’s road winning streak against the Pac-12 to 44 games. The Cardinal’s last road loss at a Pac-12 school was a 57-54 defeat at California on Jan. 18, 2009. Note that the 44-game streak only counts true Pac-12 road games. Including neutral-court Pac-12 Tournament games, Stanford has won 58 in a row against the Pac-12 away from Maples Pavilion.

Colorado shot 41.5 percent (27-for-65), joining South Dakota State (40.4 percent on Nov. 28) as the only teams this year to shoot at least 40 percent from the field against the Cardinal.

Colorado’s 77 points and 41.5 field-goal percentage are both season highs for a Cardinal opponent this season.

Stanford’s 55 first-half points were the most it has scored in a half this season.

Stanford shot a season-high 87.5 percent (21-for-24) from the line Sunday. The 21 free throws made were the Cardinal’s second-best total this year, just two behind the 23 made against Purdue on Nov. 26.

The Cardinal committed a season-high 25 fouls Sunday. There were a combined 49 fouls called in Sunday’s contest.

Freshman Karlie Samuelson set season highs in points (19), 3-pointers made (5) and field goals made (5). Her previous high in scoring was eight points, last posted against South Dakota State on Nov. 28, 2013.

Chiney Ogwumike scored 34 points with 16 rebounds Sunday. It was her eighth 30-point game of the season and sixth in the last seven games. From a rebounding angle, her 16 boards marked her third game this year with at least 15 rebounds. The line was also her 11th double-double of the season.

Stanford went 10-for-21 from 3-point range, marking the fourth time this season that it has hit at least 10 triples in a game. Over the past eight games, Stanford is shooting 48.3 percent (69-for-143) from behind the arc.

Mikaela Ruef’s 10 rebounds marked the eighth time this season that she has reached double digits in boards.

Stanford grabbed 40 rebounds Sunday, and now has grabbed at least 40 in 15 of 16 games this season. The only game in which the Cardinal failed to pull down 40 boards was Nov. 26 against Purdue, when it came away with 38.

Chiney Ogwumike’s 34 points increased her career scoring total to 2,207, keeping her in fourth place on Stanford’s all-time scoring list. She is eight points behind Kate Starbird (2,215) for third place.

Ogwumike’s 16 rebounds Sunday brought her Pac-12-leading career rebounding total to 1,309.
