SANTA CLARA — Chiney Ogwumike would prefer to enjoy the first weekend of the season rather than focus on the next opponent. She's just happy for the team.

Ogwumike scored 22 points, Joslyn Tinkle added 19 and No. 4 Stanford beat Santa Clara 97-57 on Sunday.

Amber Orrange matched her career high with 18 points for the Cardinal (2-0), who had a much easier time of it in their second game of the year.

Game number three will provide Stanford with its biggest test of the young season.

"I heard they were pretty good," Ogwumike said. "I just liked the way we played and built momentum no matter who it is."
