Associated Press

Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 15 points and 10 rebounds as Stanford easily defeated UCLA 73-47 in a semifinal game at the Pac-10 women’s basketball tournament in Los Angeles.

Stanford (28-4) started the second half on a 20-3 run and led by 35 when Rosalyn Gold-Onwude scored on a layup with 11:55 remaining. Jayne Appel, who finished with 10 points and seven rebounds, sparked the run with six consecutive points. Ogwumike also added six during that stretch.

Gold-Onwude, who had 12 points, finished the spurt to give Stanford, the top seed in the tournament, a 59-24 lead.

Other than a 12-2 run near the end of the game, the fourth-seeded Bruins (19-12) couldn’t get things going on offense. The Bruins shot 23 percent in the first half and didn’t have a basket until the 12:22 mark.

Nina Earl led the Bruins with eight points.

USC 69, (12) California 67: Camille LeNoir had 25 points as the Trojans beat the Golden Bears and advanced to the Pac-10 final with its second straight win over a ranked team.

Hailey Dunham added 12 points for the sixth-seeded Trojans (17-4), which snapped an eight-game losing streak to Cal (25-6). USC beat No. 16 Arizona State in the quarterfinals Friday.
