Tinkle leads No. 4 Stanford’s win

 

BOULDER, Colo. – With Stanford star Nnemkadi Ogwumike slowed by an ankle injury, Joslyn Tinkle helped pick up the slack.

Tinkle matched her career high with 20 points and the No. 4 Stanford women’s basketball team routed Colorado 80-54 Saturday.

Toni Kokenis and Chiney Ogwumike added 19 points each for Stanford (15-1, 6-0 Pac-12), which won its 12th in a row since its only loss of the season to Connecticut 68-58 on Nov. 21.

Just four minutes into the game, though, Stanford got a scare when Nnemkadi Ogwumike, who came in leading the conference in scoring at 24.0 points per game, tripped in a scramble under the basket and fell to the floor in pain with a right ankle injury. She returned midway through the first half after getting her ankle re-taped and finished with 15 points.
