No. 3 Stanford Survives Upset Bid by Washington

According to the Stanford women's basketball media guide, the Cardinal has failed to make a 3-pointer three times in its history since the 3-point line was introduced, most recently in 2007. Today, Stanford made one 3-pointer in 21 attempts against Washington and won.

Nneka Ogwumike had 22 points and 9 rebounds and sister Chiney added 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead Tara VanDerveer's squad to a 62-52 win against the Huskies at Maples Pavilion, extending the Cardinal's winning streak against Pac-10 foes to 50 games.

Stanford led 24-18 at the half and extended the lead to 10 early in the second half, but the Huskies battled back and pulled to within 49-47 after two free throws by Kristi Kingma (team-high 22 points) with 5:36 to play. Freshman Toni Kokenis responded with Stanford's only 3-pointer--and her only points--of the game. Kayla Pedersen was ice cold from the field and missed all 10 of her 3-point attempts, but still finished with 13 points.

Had Stanford lost, it would've been the third major upset on the Farm this weekend. The No. 4 Stanford men's volleyball team lost to UCSD on Friday and the No. 1 Stanford women's swimming team had its 33-match winning streak snapped by No. 4 Cal earlier today.
