STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 25 points and eight rebounds, and No. 4 Stanford beat UCLA 82-59 on Sunday.

Chiney Ogwumike added 19 points for the Cardinal (22-1, 13-0 Pac-12), who won their 19th straight since losing at Connecticut on Nov. 21. Toni Kokenis scored 12 points.

Markel Walker had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Bruins (12-12, 7-6 Pac-12), who lost their second straight following a four-game winning streak. Thea Lemberger added 13 points.

Rebekah Gardner scored 15 and became the 26th UCLA player to surpass 1,000 points. She now has 1,006.

Stanford extended its school record home winning streak to 76 games and 70 against Pac-12 opponents, which includes tournament games.

The Cardinal need one more win or a California loss to clinch at least a share of their 12th consecutive conference title.

Stanford scored the final four points of the first half to take a 35-30 lead into the break.
