Nnemkadi Ogwumike scored 20 points as No. 4 Stanford beat Washington State 94-50 on Sunday in Pullman, improving to 51-0 all-time against the Cougars.

Younger sister Chiney Ogwumike added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Stanford (14-2, 5-0 Pac-10), which has won eight straight games, including its historic win over No. 1 Connecticut that ended the Huskies’ 90-game winning streak.

Jeanette Pohlen had 14 points for Stanford, while Joslyn Tinkle came off the bench to score 12 and Sarah Boothe 10.

Hana Potter had nine points to lead Washington State (4-14, 2-4 Pac-10), which saw its two-game league winning streak snapped.

The Cougars were coming off wins over Oregon State and California.

“Over the whole weekend we improved as a team,” Potter said, adding that it was fun to play against a team as talented as Stanford.

Stanford shot 57 percent and dominated inside to keep Washington State the only Pac-10 team never to beat the Cardinal.

Washington State trailed 44-32 early in the second half.

Washington 57, California 48: Kristi Kingma scored 15 points, 10 in the second half, to lead the Huskies past the Bears in Seattle.

Sarah Morton added 12 points for the Huskies (7-8, 2-4 Pac-10), who outscored Cal 30-18 in the second half.

Mikayla Lyles led the Golden Bears (10-6, 2-3) with 11 points, but only two in the second half. DeNesha Stallworth had 10 points and 10 rebounds for her sixth double-double of the season.

UW trailed 30-27 at halftime, but opened the second half on a 19-7 run to take the lead for good.
