SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Chiney Ogwumike scored 20 points, Sara James added a career-high 18 and No. 4 Stanford defeated Utah 70-56 on Sunday.

The Cardinal (13-1, 2-0 Pac-12) extended their conference winning streak to 80 games and improved to 15-0 against the Utes.

Ogwumike entered the game having posted 10 straight double-doubles, but she managed just six rebounds against the Utes.

Iwalani Rodrigues led Utah (9-4, 0-2) with 21 points. Freshman Paige Crozon added 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting.

The Utes were within 37-35 with 14:32 left following a layup by Taryn Wicijowski on a nice feed by Danielle Rodriguez. But Ogwumike sparked a 10-2 Stanford run with a contested jumper. Joslyn Tinkle capped the run with a steal and layup and 47-37 Cardinal lead.
