“It’s not easy to stay healthy, to compete. If it was easy, more people would do it,” Coach TARA VANDERVEER said of her program’s incredible run.

The Cardinal dominated in every phase to set a new home record with its 60th consecutive win at Maples Pavilion. The team hasn’t lost at home in more than four seasons.

Stanford also got a boost with the return of NNEMKADI OGWUMIKE, reigning Pac-10 Player of the Year, who had 4 points and 4 rebounds in only 12 minutes after missing the last two games with a sprained right ankle.

“It’s debatable who’s the best team in the country,” Oregon coach Paul Westhead said. “[Stanford] would certainly get my vote.”
