CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP)--Kayla Pedersen scored 23 points and second-ranked Stanford pulled away from Oregon State in the second half for a 63-47 victory Thursday night.
Nnemkadi Ogwumike added 12 points and nine rebounds for the Cardinal (16-1, 6-0 Pacific-10), who have won seven straight since an 80-68 loss to top-ranked Connecticut.
Talisa Rhea had 26 points for Oregon State (9-7, 1-5) which has lost five straight since opening conference play with a victory over Washington State.
Rhea had 17 points in the first half and the Beavers trailed 29-27 at the break. But they could not keep up with the bigger and faster Cardinal in the second.
The Beavers have not defeated Stanford since an 81-65 victory at Gill in 2001. Overall, the Cardinal hold a 43-6 series lead over Oregon State.
