Stanford, CA (Sports Network) - Chiney Ogwumike scored 20 points and pulled down 12 rebounds to lead sixth-ranked Stanford to a 69-56 win over No. 20 Colorado on Sunday.

Joslyn Tinkle added 16 points, Toni Kokenis scored 15 and Amber Orrange finished with 10 points for the Cardinal (18-2, 7-1 Pac-12), who have won four straight since a 67-55 setback to Cal on Jan. 13.

Chucky Jeffery scored 13 points and Jamee Swan finished with 14 points on 7- of-9 shooting from the floor for the Buffaloes (15-4, 4-4), who have dropped back-to-back games.

Colorado will finish a three-game swing against ranked opponents when it takes on No. 19 UCLA on Feb. 1.

The Cardinal opened the second frame on a 21-4 run to go up 51-30 with 14:26 to go.

Colorado was able to make it a 10-point game at 66-56 following a Swan layup with 2:23 left, but Stanford didn't allow another basket the rest of the way to seal the win.
