The Stanford women stayed perfect in Pac-12 play on Sunday, finishing a weekend sweep of the Washington schools with a 71-59 defeat of the Huskies at Maples Pavilion.

Kiki Iriafen scored 19 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Cameron Brink added a 16-point, 16-rebound double-double. Nunu Agara chipped in 12 points off the bench.

“There is a battle every night once conference play starts, there are no gimme games,” said Stanford head coach Tara VanDerveer, who earned her 1,200th career victory. “There is no game where you look at it and say, ‘Oh, this is going to be an easy game.’ I think that we have a good group with this year’s team. Great leadership with Hannah and Kiki and Cam as captains, and they just weren’t going to let it go any other way but the way it happened today.”

The Cardinal outrebounded the Huskies (11-3, 1-2 Pac-12) 47-22.

Hannah Jump started the contest 0-for-8 from distance, but she hit four 3-pointers in a row in the second half to finish with 13 points.

The eighth-ranked Cardinal (14-1, 3-0) will undertake their toughest weekend of the season when they travel to No. 15 Utah and No. 5 Colorado.

VanDerveer needs three wins to break the NCAA’s all-time wins record, help by former Duke men’s coach Mike Krzyzewski. If the Cardinal win their next two road games, she could do so at home against Oregon on Jan. 19.
