Stanford, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Chiney Ogwumike contributed 32 points and
11 rebounds in No. 5 Stanford's 83-60 triumph over Washington on Thursday at
Maples Pavilion.

Bonnie Samuelson supplied 14 points, while Lili Thompson and Amber Orrange added 11 and 10 points, respectively, for the Cardinal (27-2, 16-1 Pac-12), who clinched their 14th straight Pac-12 title and 23rd in 28 years with Sunday's 65-56 victory at UCLA.

The Cardinal also exacted a measure of revenge for a Feb. 9 loss at Washington that halted Stanford's 21-game win streak.

Kelsey Plum poured in 21 points to pace Washington (16-12, 9-8), which has lost two straight.

Stanford used an 11-0 run to build a double-digit lead less than four minutes in and the Cardinal kept the Huskies at arm's length throughout the first half before taking a 45-32 lead at the break.

A 10-0 surge early in the second pushed the spread to 25, allowing Stanford to cruise to victory down the stretch.
