STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Chiney Ogwumike had 19 points and 12 rebounds and No. 4 Stanford rolled past Oregon State 90-53 on Friday night for its 11th straight victory.
Amber Orrange added 15 points on 7-for-9 shooting, six assists and two steals for Stanford (25-2, 14-1 Pac-12), which has won 27 straight games against Oregon State and also owns a 27-game home winning streak against the Beavers at Maples Pavilion.
Joslyn Tinkle went over the 1,000-point mark early in the second half and hit two late 3-pointers to finish with 11 points as Stanford stayed unbeaten in its last 11 games since a 67-55 loss to rival California at home on Jan. 13. The sixth-ranked Golden Bears beat Oregon 77-55 in Berkeley, so Stanford kept pace atop the conference standings.
Beavers leading scorer Jamie Weisner scored 12 points to lead cold-shooting Oregon State (9-18, 3-12), which went 22 of 68 from the floor for 32.4 percent in losing its ninth straight game.
NO. 5 DUKE 61, NO. 19 FLORIDA ST. 50
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Elizabeth Williams had 20 points and 13 rebounds to help Duke rally for a win over Florida State.
Chloe Wells added 15 points for the Blue Devils (25-1, 15-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their 37th consecutive home game against ACC competition.
Duke trailed 24-20 early in the second half but seized control with a 26-4 run over the next 9 minutes. Wells gave the Blue Devils a 28-26 lead with 15:36 remaining, and they never trailed again.
Alexa Deluzio scored 16 points and Natasha Howard added 15 points and 11 rebounds to lead Florida State (20-6, 10-5), which lost its sixth straight matchup with Duke.
NO. 6 CALIFORNIA 77, OREGON 55
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Layshia Clarendon scored 14 points and California won its school-record 12th straight game with a victory over Oregon.
Afure Jemerigbe added 13 points for the Bears (24-2, 14-1 Pac-12), who early on looked somewhat ragged offensively with starting point guard Brittany Boyd sitting out because of a strained groin.
Boyd leads Cal in assists and ranks third in scoring at 12.5 points per game.
Cal started pulling away with a 12-2 run to close the first half en route to matching the record win streak set by the 2008-09 team. The Bears can break the mark against Oregon State on Sunday.
Jordan Loera and Ariel Thomas scored nine points each to lead the Ducks (4-23, 2-13).
NO. 16 NORTH CAROLINA 72, VIRGINIA TECH 50
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Tierra Ruffin-Pratt scored 17 points as North Carolina defeated Virginia Tech to clinch a first-round bye in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.
The Tar Heels (24-4, 12-3) never trailed and led 40-24 at halftime after making 7 of 13 attempts from 3-point range in the opening half.
Ruffin-Pratt stole the ball and scored right after halftime and Waltiea Rolle added a jumper for a 20-point lead just 93 seconds after the break.
Monet Tellier had 15 points and eight assists for the Hokies (8-18, 2-13), who lost for the 13th time in their last 14 games.

Lia Galdeira led Washington State with 12 points, but made just 2 of 13 shots from the field. The Cougars (10-16, 6-9) shot 19 percent.
The Buffs are in fifth place in the Pac-12, one game behind UCLA and Washington, who are tied for third. Colorado hosts Washington on Sunday.
