Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer recorded her 400th conference victory, and the No. 4-ranked Cardinal improved its record away from home to 12-0 with an 86-62 victory over Oregon in Eugene on Friday.
With the consecutive home losses that ended Stanford's 82-game home winning streak, it's easy to forget how successful Stanford (19-2, 8-1) has been on the road this season. The Cardinal beat No. 1-ranked Baylor on a neutral court in Hawaii in November, and has road wins against No. 6 Cal, No. 9 Tennessee, No. 15 South Carolina and No. 22 Colorado.
And the Cardinal had no problem with Oregon, which is in last place in the Pac-12 with a 1-8 conference record and a 3-18 overall mark.
Stanford remained tied for first place with Cal, which rolled to a 60-38 victory over Oregon State Friday. The Cardinal will be heavily favored to get its 13th road victory when it plays the Beavers on Sunday.
Chiney Ogwumike had 22 points and 13 rebounds in just 28 minutes of playing time on Friday.
Amber Orrange returned to the starting lineup after coming off the bench in Stanford's previous game, and she had nine points and nine assists with just two turnovers in only 20 minutes of court time.
Joslyn Tinkle had 16 points, and Sara James, who remained in the starting lineup in the Cardinal's three-guard alignment, had 11 points.
Stanford took an early 16-2 lead and led by as many as 20 points in the first half. The Cardinal led by 25 points six minutes into the second half and cruised to a victory while limiting the Ducks to 28.4 percent shooting for the game.
Stanford hoisted up 27 three-point shots -- an unusually high number for a Cardinal team that averages about 13 three-point attempts per game. The Cardinal made 10 of those long-range shots.
