LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chiney Ogwumike had 26 points and 15 rebounds for her record-setting 20th double-double of the season and No. 4 Stanford defeated Southern California for the 12th straight time, 79-55 on Friday night.
Joslyn Tinkle added 17 points and 11 rebounds, Mikaela Ruef had a career-best 12 points and eight rebounds, and Amber Orrange had 10 points to help keep the Cardinal (23-2, 12-1 Pac-12) tied with No. 6 California atop the league standings.
Stanford earned its ninth straight victory and improved to 14-0 away from home this season.
Alexyz Vaioletama scored 14 points and Cassie Harberts added 13 for the Trojans (8-16, 5-8), who have dropped five in a row and eight of nine.
Ogwumike's double-double bettered the single-season record that she and older sister Nneka set last season before Nneka graduated and began playing for the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks. Chiney has 50 double-doubles in her three-year career, one shy of Nneka's record of 51 set from 2008-12.
No. 6 CALIFORNIA 79, No. 15 UCLA 51
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gennifer Brandon scored 16 points to lead a balanced offense that carried California past UCLA.
Brittany Boyd and Layshia Clarendon had 14 points each and Reshanda Gray added 10 to lead the Bears (22-2, 12-1 Pac-12) to their 10th straight win.
Atonye Nyingifa scored 20 for UCLA (19-5, 10-3 Pac-12), which had won six straight since a loss at California on Jan. 20. The Bruins also were handed their first home loss in conference play this season.
Cal built a 19-point lead in the first half and led by 18 at the break. UCLA got no closer than 11 points in the second half. The Bruins shot just 34 percent (19 for 56) from the field.
Cal hasn't lost since it was beaten by No. 4 Stanford on Jan. 8.
No. 21 COLORADO 55, ARIZONA 42
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Jen Reese scored 15 points and Colorado never trailed in beating Arizona.
Lexy Kresl, Chucky Jeffery and Arielle Robertson each scored eight points for the Buffaloes (19-5, 8-5 Pac-12), who have won four in a row. All of Colorado's losses have been to ranked teams — including two each to Stanford and California.
The Buffaloes pulled away from an 11-all tie with a 13-0 run, and stayed in control after that. Colorado led 30-23 at the break and scored the first 10 points of the second half.
Jeffery also had six assists and four steals. Robertson led the Buffs with seven rebounds.
Carissa Crutchfield scored 13 points for the Wildcats (11-13, 3-10), who have lost eight in a row.
