STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Chiney Ogwumike scored 27 points, grabbed a school record 24 rebounds and set a Stanford career mark with her 52nd double-double Sunday, leading No. 4 Stanford to a 74-50 victory over Oregon.

Ogwumike, a junior, broke the career double-double record she had briefly shared with her older sister, Nnemkadi Ogwumike.

The Cardinal (26-2, 15-1 Pac-12) won their 12th straight game since suffering a 67-55 loss to Cal on Jan. 13 and remained tied atop the conference standings with the Bears. Stanford beat Oregon (4-24, 2-14) for the 17th consecutive time, improving to 47-8 in the series and 26-1 at Maples Pavilion.

Amber Orrange had 12 points for Stanford, while Sara James and Bonnie Samuelson scored 8 apiece.

Freshman Jillian Alleyne had a double-double for the Ducks with 12 points — all in the second half — and 10 rebounds. Devyn Galland scored 10 points, while Liz Brenner had 8.
