Chiney Ogwumike scored 26 points and Amber Orrange added 15 to help No. 5 Stanford pull away from seventh-ranked California for its 81st straight win against a conference opponent, 62-53 over the Golden Bears on Tuesday night.

After having their 82-game home winning streak snapped late last month against Connecticut, Ogwumike wouldn't allow the Cardinal (14-1, 3-0 Pac-12) to have another long run of dominance come to an end.

Ogwumike provided the bulk of the scoring and helped hold the Bears (12-2, 2-1) to 30 percent shooting at the other end to win for the 10th straight time in this rivalry. Stanford's last loss to Cal — or any conference team — came nearly four years ago, on Jan. 18, 2009, on this court to the Bears.

Layshia Clarendon scored 17 points to lead the Bears.
