TEMPE, Ariz. — With a gritty, grinding team hanging around well into the second half, Stanford turned where it always does: to the Ogwumike sisters.

Once they got rolling, Arizona State had no chance.

Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 22 points and 16 rebounds, her sister Chiney had 20 points and 16 rebounds, and No. 4 Stanford overpowered ASU in the second half for a 62-49 win Thursday.

"They've got a great 1-2 punch with those two being able to do what they do," Arizona State interim coach Joseph Anders said.

Stanford (19-1, 10-0 Pac-12) needed overtime to beat California in its last game and found itself in another fight against the scrappy Sun Devils. The Cardinal pulled away over the final 12 minutes behind the Ogwumike sisters, who combined for 13 points during a 20-2 run that put them up 18.

Deja Mann had 11 points and Micaela Pickens 10 for Arizona State (15-6, 6-4), which lost its 12th straight to the Cardinal.
