Chiney Ogwumike posted her sixth consecutive double-double with a career-high 32 points and 18 rebounds to lead No. 4 Stanford to a 65-45 victory over Oregon State on Sunday in Corvallis, Ore.
"The best thing I can be is levelheaded, keep a smile on my face throughout the game and try to compete," Ogwumike said.
Amber Orrange and Bonnie Samuelson -- who hit four 3-pointers -- added 12 points apiece for the Cardinal (20-2, 9-1 Pac-12). Jamie Weisner had 13 points and Ali Gibson added 12 for the Beavers (9-13, 3-7).
Gibson opened the second half with a reverse layup to get Oregon State within 35-26, but Ogwumike, who fell one shy of her career high in rebounds, then scored six consecutive points to help Stanford regain control.
"She does everything for them," Oregon State coach Scott Rueck said. "That's why they're who they are."
Stanford shot 38.5 percent and Oregon State shot 35.8 percent in a matchup of the Pac-12's top two field-goal percentage defenses.
"I just thought our defense was working really hard," Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said. "Some people weren't knocking down their shots like they usually do, but sometimes that happens."
Cal 72, Oregon 45: Layshia Clarendon scored 15 points, Gennifer Brandon and Talia Caldwell each had double-doubles, and the No. 6 Golden Bears (19-2, 9-1 Pac-12) cruised past the Ducks (3-19, 1-9) in Eugene, Ore.
Caldwell finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds, and Brandon had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Bears, who maintained their tie with No. 4 Stanford atop the conference standings.
"I think this game looks the way it looks on the scoreboard because of the intensity and focus our players played with," said Cal coach Lindsay Gottlieb, who earned her 100th career win.
Cal took advantage of Oregon's poor shooting and turnover-prone offense to take a 38-19 lead at halftime.
After Oregon's Jordan Loera scored the opening basket, the Bears outscored the Ducks 30-4 over the next 13 minutes to take a 30-6 lead.
"I loved the way we started this game, and I think it started with our defense," Gottlieb said. "We made it really tough for them to score. We focused on shutting down their transition game, and I think we did that really well."
