Stanford Drops St. John's 75-49 in NCAA Second Round

STANFORD, Calif. -- Nnemkadi Ogwumike scored 22 points, little sister Chiney added 13 points and 12 rebounds and top-seeded Stanford overcame a slow start to reach the NCAA tournament's round of 16 with a 75-49 win over St. John's on Monday night. The Cardinal (31-2) captured their school-record 63rd straight victory at Maples Pavilion, capping a perfect run by the seniors on their home floor for their careers -- the first group in school history to accomplish that feat. Centhya Hart scored 15 points to lead scrappy St. John's (22-11), which fell in the second round for the second straight year and still has never won twice in the tournament. Kayla Pedersen had 14 points, eight rebounds and five assists in her final game at Maples and Pac-10 Player of the Year Jeanette Pohlen wasn't as sharp as usual in scoring eight points in her last hurrah at home.
