STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Joslyn Tinkle had career highs of 20 points and 11 rebounds to go with three blocks and two steals, and No. 4 Stanford routed Cal State Bakersfield 90-48 on Thursday.
Freshman Bonnie Samuelson scored 14 points and Chiney Ogwumike added 10 on 5-for-5 shooting in 15 minutes as the Cardinal followed up a commanding victory against sixth-ranked Tennessee two days earlier by extending their school-record home winning streak to 69 games.
This was one of the few easy games in what has been another daunting, NCAA tournament-like non-conference schedule for 26th-year coach Tara VanDerveer’s young group.
After Nnemkadi Ogwumike led the way in Tuesday night’s 97-80 victory over Tennessee with a career-high 42 points, her little sister helped take charge in this one.
NO. 11 OHIO STATE 79, WASHINGTON STATE 57
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Samantha Prahalis overcame a slow start to spark a second-half run and lead the Buckeyes to victory.
Prahalis came in averaging 17.8 points but had just two in the first 20 minutes as Ohio State (13-0) clung to a 40-35 halftime lead. She had six points in the opening four minutes after the break then hit her second 3-pointer with 11:38 left to spark a 17-1 spurt that gave the Buckeyes a 70-45 lead.
Tayler Hill had 15 of her 21 points in the first half for the Buckeyes, while Prahalis finished with 20 points and 10 assists.
Carly Noyes scored 15 for the Cougars (6-6) and Jazmine Perkins added 10.
NO. 13 GEORGIA 81, APPALACHIAN STATE 37
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Khaalidah Miller had 23 points and 11 rebounds, and freshman Krista Donald added 22 points in the Lady Bulldogs’ win.
Georgia (10-2) was able to let point guard Jasmine James rest her injured right knee. The Lady Bulldogs’ second-leading scorer watched the game from the bench in a warmup.
Meredith Mitchell moved from swingman to point guard, and Erika Ford started in Mitchell’s spot. But Mitchell left the game with blurred vision after getting poked in the eye late in the first half and Miller had to take over at point guard.
Anna Freeman scored 14 points to lead Appalachian State (8-2).
