Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Nnemkadi Ogwumike netted 18 points to go with seven rebounds and four assists as second-ranked Stanford crushed Washington, 76-57, in Pac-12 quarterfinal action at the Galen Center on Thursday.
Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Brittney Griner littered the stat sheet
with 15 points, nine rebounds, five blocks and four assists, and No. 1 Baylor

a Big 12 Tournament quarterfinal on Thursday.
The Galen Center turned into the land of the upsets on Wednesday as the 10th, 11th and 12th seeds advanced to the quarterfinals. As a result, a trio of coaches thought destined for a quick flight out of LAX instead floated from the arena to the team bus back to their hotels and slept like babies.
