Pac-12 Tournament Semifinal


USC (21-12) – 32 • 40 = 72
Stanford (29-3) – 32 • 36 = 68

Stanford fell to 53-20 all-time against USC with Saturday’s 72-68 Pac-12 Tournament semifinal loss. The loss is just the third in Pac-12 Tournament play for the Cardinal since 2002, and drops its overall record at the event to 34-3.

The semifinal loss means that Stanford will not play in the Pac-12 Tournament final for the first time in the event’s history.

USC became the third different team to defeat Stanford at the Pac-12 Tournament, joining Arizona State (2002) and UCLA (2006).

Chiney Ogwumike ended the game with 30 points, and tied with Candice Wiggins (2005-08) atop the Pac-12’s career-scoring list at 2,629 career points.

Ogwumike’s 30-point, 21-rebound performance marked the following: her 14th 30-point game of the season, her 24th double-double, and her fourth-career 20-rebound game.

Stanford shot a season-low 31.9 percent Saturday night. Its previous low was 32.3 percent at Texas on Nov. 23, 2013.

No Stanford player shot at least 50.0 percent from the field Saturday night.

Chiney Ogwumike’s 30 points increased her career scoring total to 2,629, matching Candice Wiggins’ Pac-12 record of 2,629 career points.

Ogwumike’s 21 rebounds Sunday brought her Pac-12-leading career rebounding total to 1,515.
