Stanford-Arizona State Postgame Notes

Release: 02/14/2014

Arizona State (20-5, 9-4 Pac-12) – 12 • 23 = 35
Stanford (23-2, 12-1 Pac-12) – 32 • 29 = 61

Stanford improved to 56-11 all-time against Arizona State and completed the season sweep of the Sun Devils with Friday night’s 61-35 win. The win is also Stanford’s 16th in a row against Arizona State. 

Friday night’s win also pushes the Cardinal’s lead atop the Pac-12 table to three games over the second-place Sun Devils. Stanford’s magic number for a first-round bye at March 6-9’s Pac-12 Tournament is now at 1 (either one more Stanford win or one more Oregon State loss). 

Stanford is now 8-1 against Top-25 opponents in 2013-14. 

Chiney Ogwumike posted her 22nd 20-point game and 19th double-double of the season with 20 points and 13 rebounds in just 24 minutes Friday. 

Arizona State’s 12 points at halftime matched the lowest first-half point total by a Stanford Pac-12 opponent. The previous time a Pac-12 opponent had managed just 12 points by halftime was by Washington on Dec. 28, 2007. 

Arizona State had no players score in double figures Friday night, the first time that has happened to a Stanford opponent this season. The last Cardinal opponent to not have any players score in double figures in a game was Washington State in a 72-50 loss to Stanford in Pullman on March 2, 2013. 

Arizona State’s 35 points for the game were just one point more than the lowest by a Stanford Pac-12 opponent. The record-low is 34 by Washington State in a 60-34 Cardinal win on Feb. 8, 2007. 

Arizona State’s 24.19 field-goal percentage (15-for-62) is the lowest by a Cardinal opponent this season. New Mexico also shot a 24.2-percent figure, but its 16-for-66 effort came out to 24.24 percent. 

Stanford went 0-for-4 from behind the arc Friday, the first time it had failed to hit a triple in a game since a 62-53 win at California on Jan. 8, 2013.

Stanford had a season-low one blocked shot for the second straight game.

Amber Orrange scored 14 points Friday night, her highest scoring total since hitting that total Jan. 10 at Utah. She also matched her career high with five steals. 

Chiney Ogwumike’s 20 points increased her career scoring total to 2,443, 48 points behind older sister Nnemkadi Ogwumike (2,491) for second place on Stanford’s all-time scoring list. 

Ogwumike’s 13 rebounds Sunday brought her Pac-12-leading career rebounding total to 1,428.
