Chiney Ogwumike scored a career-high 37 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in her final regular-season game for No. 5 Stanford, leading the Cardinal to an 84-64 victory over Washington State on Saturday night.

Ogwumike surpassed her previous career high of 36, which she set against Cal Poly this season and matched against Washington State on Jan. 11.

Ogwumike made 14 of 23 shots, scoring from inside with 2:17 left to surpass her career mark before coming out of the game to a huge ovation.

Stanford (28-2, 17-1 Pacific-12 Conference) improved to 57-0 in the series against Washington State (15-15, 9-9).

Amber Orrange added 20 points for Stanford.

Washington 70, No. 18 Cal 65 in Berkeley – Kelsey Plum had 22 points while Jazmine Davis added 20 to help lead the Huskies (17-12, 10-8 Pac-12) past the Bears.

The Huskies led by as many as 10 points in the second half, but Cal (21-8, 13-5) cut the deficit to three with 33 seconds left on a pair of free throws and a layup by Reshanda Gray, who finished with 16 points and 16 rebounds.

The Bears missed their last two shots and two free throws, though, as Washington escaped with the upset.

Afure Jemerigbe led Cal with 24 points, including five three-pointers.

No. 22 Gonzaga 81, Pacific 77 in Spokane, Wash. – Sunny Greinacher scored a career-high 24 points for the Zags.

KiKi Moore kept Pacific (17-11, 12-6) in the game by matching her career-high of 33 points. Hailie Eackles added 20 and Kendall Kenyon 12 with 10 rebounds.


Arizona St. 78, Cal 60 in Tempe, Ariz. – Jermaine Marshall scored 22 points, Jonathan Gilling matched his season-high with 15 and Arizona State pulled away in the second half.

It was likely the final game at Arizona State (21-8, 10-6 Pac-12) for Sun Devils’ sophomore star playmaker Jahii Carson, who is expected to declare for the NBA draft after this season.

“He’s not coming back,” coach Herb Sendek said after the game.
