Women's Basketball Falls at No. 2 Stanford
Feb. 24, 2011
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) – Sage Indendi scored 12 points for Oregon State (9-17, 2-13), but No. 2 Stanford earned a 73-37 win over Oregon State on Thursday night in Maples Pavilion.
Oregon State put together an 11-0 run early in the first half, but Stanford responded with a 17-0 surge and put the game away with a 33-4 blitz in the second half.
The Beavers, who were coming off a dramatic come-from-behind win over Oregon last week, shot just 23.2 percent (13 of 56) from the floor and trailed by as much as 40 while losing their 22nd straight to Stanford. They have never won in 25 trips to Maples Pavilion.
Playing their second straight game without leading scorer Nnemkadi Ogwumike, the Cardinal started slow but finished strong on the way to their 59th straight victory at Maples Pavilion, tying the school record for consecutive home wins. Sarah Boothe scored 16 points and Kayla Pedersen had 13.
Stanford (25-2, 16-0) clinched a share of its 11th straight Pac-10 title and can clinch the outright conference title by beating Oregon on Saturday.
Oregon State concludes play in the Bay Area at California on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Catch the game live on 1340 KLOO-AM in the Corvallis area, 1550 KKAD-AM in the Portland area or through Beaver Nation Online (osubeavers.com). Ron Callan will call all of the action.
