HONOLULU - Chiney Ogwumike had 15 points and 17 rebounds and No. 4 Stanford easily beat Hawaii 69-42 on Saturday night.
The Cardinal (4-0) dominated one night after upsetting No. 1 Baylor at the start of the Rainbow Wahine tournament in Honolulu, never trailing the host team.
Ogwumike — who at one point in the first half had 13 rebounds to Hawaii's 13 as a team — was one of four players with double-digit points for Stanford.
Joslyn Tinkle scored 16 points, Amber Orrange had 13 and Toni Kokenis had 12.
Stanford scored 14 unanswered points midway through the first half and led by 18 at the break. The Cardinal led by as much as 29 in the second half and were never seriously threatened.
Freshman Ashleigh Karaitiana scored 14 points for Hawaii (1-2), which shot just under 31 percent.
Hawaii tried to shoot 3-pointers early to hang with the Cardinal, but gave up in the second half with little success.
Kamilah Martin had nine points and six rebounds for the Rainbow Wahine.
Stanford's teams continued their stellar weekend run.
One night after the women's basketball team upset No. 1 Baylor, the football team knocked off No. 1 Oregon in overtime.
"Great start boys," Ogwumike tweeted after a Stanford touchdown before the start of her game, while No. 1 Baylor and UT Martin played in the tournament's early matchup.
The Cardinal play UT Martin on Sunday to finish the round robin.
