Stanford (22-1, 11-0 Pac-12) – 28 • 49 = 77
Washington State (12-11, 6-5 Pac-12) – 24 • 45 = 69

Stanford is now 56-0 all-time against Washington State after Friday’s 77-69 win. The win was also Stanford’s 21st in a row, and improved the Cardinal to 22-1 overall and 11-0 in Pac-12 play.

The eight-point margin of victory was Stanford’s smallest since another eight-point win over Washington State on Jan. 13, 2007, a 63-55 win in Pullman. Friday also marked just the eighth time in 56 all-time meetings that a meeting between the Cardinal and Cougars has been decided by a single-digit margin.

Chiney Ogwumike matched career highs with 36 points and 15 field goals Friday night, and posted her 11th 30-point game and, with her 17 rebounds, her 17th double-double of the season.

Washington State’s Lia Galdeira (21) and Tia Presley (20) combined for 41 points Friday. Their performances marked the first time since Dec. 16, 2010 that two opposing players had each scored at least 20 points in the same game against the Cardinal. On that date, DePaul’s Keisha Hampton (27 points) and Felicia Chester (24) pulled the feat in a 91-71 win over the Cardinal in Chicago.

Junior forward Taylor Greenfield established career highs of nine rebounds and five assists to go with 11 points Friday.

Stanford matched a season low with just one blocked shot Friday night.

Stanford’s 12 assists were its lowest since only passing out 10 at Texas on Nov. 23, 2013.

Chiney Ogwumike’s 36 points increased her career scoring total to 2,400, 91 points behind older sister Nnemkadi Ogwumike (2,491) for second place on Stanford’s all-time scoring list.

Ogwumike’s 17 rebounds Friday brought her Pac-12-leading career rebounding total to 1,401.
