No. 4 Stanford women top Washington 65-47

Nnemkadi Ogwumike scored 17 points, Chiney Ogwumike had 15 points and 11 rebounds and No. 4 Stanford beat Washington 65-47 on Saturday.

Taylor Greenfield came off the bench to score 12 points and spark a late rally for the Cardinal (17-1, 8-0 in the Pac-12), who won their 73rd consecutive home game and 65th straight against a conference opponent.

Jazmine Davis scored 16 points to lead the Huskies (10-7, 2-5), who lost their 12th straight against Stanford. Mercedes Wetmore added 11 points.

Nneka Ogwumike moved into fifth place on Stanford's career scoring list with 2,082 points. She is five points shy of moving into fourth.

Washington went on an 11-6 run to end the first half, closing within 27-20 of Stanford heading into the intermission.

Nneka Ogwumike fell awkwardly and twisted an ankle with just over eight minutes left and limped off the court with a pained expression. She returned less than two minutes later.

Both teams had trouble finding open looks at the basket against swarming defenses and were both held below their season field-goal percentage averages.

Washington, coming off its worst loss of the season at California on Thursday, made it uncomfortable for the Cardinal, who started to pull away only when Regina Rogers, the Huskies' leading scorer and top rebounder, was called for her third foul early in the second half.

Mercedes Wetmore hit a free throw with 16:46 remaining to play to bring the Huskies within 32-25.

Greenfield sparked a 17-3 run with four 3-pointers over an eight-minute span that put Stanford ahead 49-28 with 8:45 remaining.
