Arizona State (5-20, 1-13 Pac-12) – 19 • 29 = 48

Stanford (24-2, 13-1 Pac-12) – 45 • 26 = 74


Stanford improved to 60-12 all-time against Arizona and completed the season sweep of the Wildcats with Sunday’s 74-48 win. The win is also Stanford’s 24th in a row against Arizona.


Sunday’s win clinched for Stanford a bye into the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 Tournament, set for March 6-9 at KeyArena in Seattle. Stanford also closes in further on its 14th straight Pac-12 regular-season title and 23rd overall, now leading the conference race by three games with four to play.


None of Stanford’s starters played more than 24 minutes Sunday. Amber Orrange led the five with 24 minutes played, while Chiney Ogwumike played 22, Lili Thompson 18, Mikaela Ruef 16 and Taylor Greenfield 13.


Chiney Ogwumike’s 22 minutes of playing time Sunday was her season low. Her previous low had been 23 minutes against New Mexico (Dec. 16) and at Fresno State (Dec. 28). She finished the game with 15 points and nine rebounds.


Bonnie Samuelson hit five 3-pointers, just one shy of her career high, and scored 17 points to lead all players Sunday.


Stanford went 13-for-22 from behind the arc Sunday, two days after failing to hit a triple against Arizona State. The 13 3-pointers marked the sixth game this year in which the Cardinal hit at least 10. Combined with the 15 3-pointers hit against Arizona on Jan. 17 in Tucson, Stanford has gone a collective 28-for-56 (50.0 percent) from behind the arc against the Wildcats this season.


Amber Orrange scored nine points with nine assists Sunday, coming just one assist shy of her second 10-assist game of the season.


Freshman guard Karlie Samuelson sat out Sunday’s game with a sore foot. At the moment, she is expected to return to action in time for next Friday’s game at USC.


Arizona went 0-for-5 on its 3-point attempts, joining Gonzaga (0-for-14 on Dec. 14) as the only other team to fail to hit a triple this season against the Cardinal.


Chiney Ogwumike’s 15 points increased her career scoring total to 2,458, 33 points behind older sister Nnemkadi Ogwumike (2,491) for second place on Stanford’s all-time scoring list.


Ogwumike’s nine rebounds Sunday brought her Pac-12-leading career rebounding total to 1,437.
