STANFORD, Calif. — Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 33 points and 16 rebounds to go over both 2,000 points and 1,000 boards for her career, and No. 4 Stanford rallied from a rare halftime deficit to beat Oregon State 67-60 on Saturday and preserve a 71-game home winning streak.

Chiney Ogwumike added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the cold-shooting Cardinal (13-1, 4-0 Pac-12), scoring 10 of her points during a 12-4 spurt to open the second half of one of their hardest-fought conference games in recent memory.

Ali Gibson scored 16 points for scrappy Oregon State (10-5, 1-3), which hung tough on both ends of the floor the entire way and gave Stanford one of its biggest challenges since a 68-58 loss at No. 2 Connecticut on Nov. 21. It hardly mattered the Beavers own an 0-26 record on the Cardinal's home floor and have now dropped 24 straight in the series Stanford leads 48-6 overall.
