No. 5 Stanford 97, Old Dominion 48

Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 14 points and six rebounds, Lindy La

Rocque added a career-high 15 points on five 3-pointers, and No. 5

Stanford extended its winning streak at Maples Pavilion to 65 games

with a 97-48 win over Old Dominion on Thursday night.

Ogwumike, playing in her second game after sitting out the

opener with an upper body injury, wasn’t as sharp as she had been

four nights earlier when she had 33 points and 18 rebounds against

Gonzaga. Then again, she didn’t need to be.

La Rocque bested her previous career high before halftime and

finished 5 of 7 from the floor to pick up the scoring slack. Chiney

Ogwumike, Nneka’s younger sister, added 13 points and nine rebounds

for Stanford, which hasn’t lost at home in more than four

years.

The Cardinal (3-0) now head to Connecticut to face the

fourth-ranked Huskies on Monday.
