Stanford (24-2, 13-1 Pac-12) – 30 • 34 = 64
USC (16-11, 9-6 Pac-12) – 37 • 22 = 59
• Stanford improved to 53-19 all-time against USC and completed the season sweep of the Trojans with Friday’s 64-59 win. The win is also Stanford’s 14th in a row against USC.
• Friday’s win clinched for Stanford a share of its 14th straight Pac-12 regular-season title as well as the No. 1 seed at March 6-9’s Pac-12 Tournament. One more California loss or Stanford win will give the Cardinal the outright Pac-12 title.
• Stanford’s comeback from a 19-point deficit (trailed 32-13 in first half) tied its largest in program history, and is tied for the eighth-largest comeback in NCAA Division I women’s basketball history. Stanford previously overcame a 19-point deficit Nov. 25, 2007 against Temple in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Cardinal won that game 63-54.
• Stanford has only trailed by double digits in the first half in three games this season: Nov. 11 at Connecticut, Feb. 9 at Washington, and tonight at USC.
• Chiney Ogwumike posted her 23rd 20-point game of the season, finishing with 27 points and seven rebounds.
• Bonnie Samuelson posted her sixth game scoring in double figures, scoring 14 points and going 8-for-8 from the line, including 4-for-4 over the final 29 seconds. Samuelson’s eight free throws made set a new career high, her previous being four, done thrice.
• Chiney Ogwumike’s 27 points increased her career scoring total to 2,485, six points behind older sister Nnemkadi Ogwumike (2,491) for second place on Stanford’s all-time scoring list. She is also now 145 points away from breaking Candice Wiggins’ Pac-12 record of 2,629 career points.
• Ogwumike’s seven rebounds Sunday brought her Pac-12-leading career rebounding total to 1,442. She also passed Hawai’i’s Judy Mosley (1986-90) for 11th on the NCAA’s all-time rebounding list.
