Early in the first quarter, Amber Melgoza got a layup to give the Huskies their only lead of the game, 6-4, but Stanford quickly took it back. Johnson hit a jumper to tie it up and spark a quick 7-0 burst and the Cardinal led the rest of the way.

A pair of free throws from McPhee in the third quarter followed by Carrington's 3-pointer pushed Stanford's advantage to 40-27 and the margin stayed in double figures the rest of the way.
