Stanford (22-2, 11-1 Pac-12) – 34 • 48 = 82
Washington (13-10, 6-6 Pac-12) – 41 • 46 = 87

With Sunday’s 87-82 loss to Washington, Stanford is now 43-15 all-time against the Huskies. The loss snaps a 14-game winning streak against the Huskies and is Washington’s first win over the Cardinal since a 77-72 decision on Dec. 22, 2005.

The loss is Stanford’s first Pac-12 loss away from Maples Pavilion since Jan. 18, 2009, a 57-54 loss at California in Berkeley. It is also just Stanford’s second Pac-12 loss in five seasons.

Washington had five players that scored in double figures Sunday (Kelsey Plum 23, Mercedes Wetmore 18, Aminah Williams 16, Jazmine Davis 14, Talia Walton 13). The last team to pull that feat against the Cardinal was Baylor in an 81-65 Bears win in Waco on Nov. 16, 2008.

Washington set opponent season highs in points scored (87), field goals made (30) and field-goal percentage (46.9). The previous top score for an opponent this season was 77 by Colorado on Jan. 12, and Washington’s 87 points are the most by a Cardinal opponent since DePaul scored 91 in a 91-71 win on Dec. 16, 2010 in Chicago. The 87 points are the most by a Pac-12 opponent against Stanford since Arizona earned an 88-83 victory on Feb. 5, 2004 in Tucson.

Stanford’s Mikaela Ruef had a career day Sunday, setting career highs with 16 points and 22 rebounds. Ruef’s 22 boards are third-most in a single game by a Cardinal player.

Chiney Ogwumike (23 points, 14 rebounds) and Mikaela Ruef (16 points, 22 rebounds) posted double-doubles in same game for the fourth time this season.

Bonnie Samuelson hit four 3-pointers and scored 14 points, her highest point total since scoring 21 against Oregon on Jan. 3.

Stanford set season highs in field-goal attempts (81), 3-point field-goal attempts (41) and rebounds (57), while setting a season low with just one steal.

Chiney Ogwumike’s 23 points increased her career scoring total to 2,423, 68 points behind older sister Nnemkadi Ogwumike (2,491) for second place on Stanford’s all-time scoring list.

Ogwumike’s 14 rebounds Sunday brought her Pac-12-leading career rebounding total to 1,415.
