STANFORD, Calif. — Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 22 points and 10 rebounds, Chiney Ogwumike added 19 points and 12 rebounds and No. 4 Stanford shook off a sluggish start to beat Washington State 75-41 on Thursday night.

Joslyn Tinkle had nine points, eight rebounds and four assists as the Cardinal extended their school-record home winning streak to 72 games.

Stanford (16-1, 7-0 Pac-12) looked ragged in the early going before Nneka Ogwumike provided a spark, scoring 10 points in the first nine minutes of the second half. She then sat out the rest of the game, finishing 9 for 19 from the floor and moving into sixth place on the Cardinal’s career scoring list.

Washington State (9-9, 3-3) didn’t have a player in double figures and remained winless in 53 meetings between the two schools.
