Tia Presley had 17 points for the Cougars (7-6, 1-0 Pac-12). Sage Romberg scored 10 points and Mariah Cooks added 11.

Arizona State jumped to an 11-2 advantage early in the first period on the shooting of Kelsey Moos, Eliza Normen and Joy Burke. Washington State answered with an 18-5 surge to lead 30-28 with just over four minutes left before halftime.

Moos scored 17 points for the Sun Devils (11-2). Arizona State was one of three schools entering the night with only one loss.

STANFORD, Calif. -- Chiney Ogwumike had 33 points and 14 boards to become the Pac-12's all-time leading rebounder, and No. 4 Stanford beat Oregon 96-66 on Friday night in the conference opener for both schools.

Bonnie Samuelson came off the bench to match her career best of six 3-pointers on the way to a career-high 21 points as the Cardinal (12-1, 1-0 Pac-12) kicked off the conference schedule with a dominant win at Maples Pavilion after another impressive preseason.

Ogwumike shot 15 for 19 in her team's 11th consecutive win since losing at No. 1 Connecticut on Nov. 11, an unbeaten run that includes a 76-70 victory against then-No. 3 Tennessee on Dec. 21.

Jillian Alleyne had 26 points and 13 rebounds for much-improved Oregon (9-3, 0-1), which had its seven-game winning streak snapped.
