Chiney Ogwumike did all of her scoring in bunches and ended with 19 points as the sixth-ranked Stanford women's basketball team shook off its 16-day hiatus away from the court with a 75-43 nonconference victory over visiting No. 23 Gonzaga on Saturday.
The Cardinal (8-1), which played its first game at home in nearly a month, hosts New Mexico at 7 p.m. Monday night.
Kailee Johnson scored a season-high 11 points and Amber Orrange added 10 points for Stanford, which won its seventh straight.
Taylor Greenfield and Erica Payne played for the first time this season, each returning from injury.
"We got contributions from a lot of people," said Cardinal coach Tara VanDerveer, who was honored for her 900th career victory afterward. "After being off two weeks, we got right after it."
The Lobos (4-4) will be playing their first game in nine days. They've won three of their last four. The Lobos have lost to Texas and Colorado this season.
Ogwumike scored Stanford's first six points, all in the first 1:38. She scored again with 13:59 remaining in the first half.
Ogwumike went without a basket for the next 17:28, not that it mattered. The Cardinal gradually opened a 20-point advantage midway through the second half.
"It was nice to be back at home," Ogwumike said. "We're a work in progress. The freshmen are coming along. It's a great group and we treat them like they are returners."
Gonzaga was 9 of 32 in the first half and missed all nine of its 3-point attempts as the Cardinal took a 33-19 advantage into intermission.
Johnson was 4 of 7 from the field, 2 of 3 from long range, and led Stanford with eight rebounds.
"It's been a big transition from high school," Johnson said. "My teammates have been helpful in answering any questions."
Former Stanford great Nicole Powell is in her first year as an assistant coach at Gonzaga. She was greeted by a short video presentation highlighting some of her achievements, which include recording six of the eight triple-doubles in Stanford history.
"It was awesome to watch that," Gonzaga forward Sunny Greinacher said. "I didn't know all her success. I knew she was a great player in the WNBA and overseas. To watch what she did at Stanford was amazing."
Ogwumike has scored 1,995 points, 43 points back of Jeanne Ruark Hoff, who is fifth on the list.
Ogwumike also upped her career rebounding total to 1,220, six behind older sister Nnemkadi Ogwumike's third-place figure of 1,226. She is also 46 behind Kayla Pedersen's Pac-12 and Stanford record of 1,266.
