Cardinal women’s basketball Coach TARA VANDERVEER walked off the court Monday night with a star senior on either side, the perfect home record in place, thanks to four years of spectacular play by her team’s  KAYLA PEDERSEN and JEANETTE POHLEN.
But during the game  – against St. John’s  –  it was Stanford’s dominant sister duo, NNEMKADI and CHINEY OGWUMIKE, who were the key to the team’s advance to the NCAA’s Sweet Sixteen.
Nnemkadi scored 22 points, Chiney added 13 points and 12 rebounds to bring the Cardinal to a 75-49 win.
Stanford will play North Carolina in Spokane Saturday.
