Washington (16-12, 9-8 Pac-12) – 32 • 28 = 60
Stanford (27-2, 16-1 Pac-12) – 45 • 38 = 83

Stanford improved to 44-15 all-time against Washington and earned a split of the season series with Thursday night’s 83-60 win.

Thursday’s win over Washington avenged Stanford’s only Pac-12 loss this year, an 87-82 setback Feb. 9 in Seattle.

Senior forward Chiney Ogwumike scored 32 points with 11 rebounds for her 12th 30-point game and 21st double-double of the season.

Redshirt senior forward Mikaela Ruef grabbed 14 rebounds Sunday, marking her 15th game this year with at least 10 boards. Ruef’s 14 rebounds along with Chiney Ogwumike’s 11 also made for the 11th game this season in which each of the Cardinal pair pulled down a double-digit figure in boards.

Ruef’s 14 rebounds also gave her 36 over the two games against Washington this season. On Feb. 9 in Seattle she grabbed a career-high 22 rebounds.

Junior forward Bonnie Samuelson made four 3-pointers and scored 14 points for her third double-digit scoring performance over the past four games.

Freshman guard Lili Thompson scored 11 points with four rebounds in her first game back in the starting lineup since Feb. 16 against Arizona. Thompson missed Feb. 21’s game at USC due to an ankle injury, then played just eight minutes at UCLA two days later.

Washington freshman guard Kelsey Plum scored 21 points Thursday night. Along with her 23-point effort against the Cardinal on Feb. 9, she joined Brittany Boyd as the only players to twice score at least 20 points against Stanford this year. 

Chiney Ogwumike’s 32 points increased her career scoring total to 2,543, bringing her to 87 points away from breaking Candice Wiggins’ Pac-12 record of 2,629 career points.

Ogwumike’s 11 rebounds Sunday brought her Pac-12-leading career rebounding total to 1,468.
