TEMPE, Ariz. — Chiney Ogwumike scored 30 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, leading No. 4 Stanford past No. 14 Arizona State 80-56 on Monday night, the Cardinal’s 15th consecutive victory over the Sun Devils.
The 6-foot-4 star made 13 of 18 shots. She scored 18 in the second half as Stanford (17-1, 6-0 Pac-12) turned the game into a rout against the Sun Devils (14-3, 4-2), who were coming off a win over then-No. 15 California.
Taylor Greenfield scored 14 and Lili Thompson and Karlie Samuelson 11 apiece for Stanford, which won in its 60th consecutive conference road victory.
Katie Hempen scored 13 and Sophie Bruner 12 for the Sun Devils, who shot just 32 percent to the Cardinal’s 54 percent.
Arizona State led 8-6 when Stanford took control with a 16-2 run, one of Ogwumike’s many layups putting the Cardinal up 22-10 with 10:58 left in the half. She got in foul trouble that allowed the Sun Devils to crawl back into it. A 14-6 run sliced Stanford’s lead to 28-24 when Deja Mann sank one of two free throws with 2:28 left in the half.
Arizona State got no closer. The Cardinal led 35-28 at the break, then scored the first nine points of the second half to take control. Lili Thompson’s layup put Stanford ahead 44-28.
Taylor Greenfield’s three-point play had Stanford in command 53-32 with 12 1/2 minutes to play.
Arizona State had won four in a row since its only other Pac-12 at Washington and had climbed five places to No. 14 in this week’s rankings after Friday’s victory over Cal. It equaled the Sun Devils best ranking since Dec. 14, 2009.
After matching the school record with 15 3-pointers Saturday at Arizona, Stanford was 3-for-6 on 3′s Monday.
