            === Ogwumike, Stanford dismiss PSU in regional semis ===
 
 Stanford,  CA  (SportsNetwork.com) - Chiney  Ogwumike tallied 29 points and 15
 rebounds,  as the second-seeded Stanford Cardinal made easy work of the third-
 seeded  Penn  State Nittany  Lions, 82-57,  in the  semifinals of the Stanford
 regional of the NCAA Tournament at Maples Pavilion.
 
 Ogwumike  shot 10-of-19  from the field and 9-of-10 at the free-throw line for
 Stanford  (32-3),  which will  play  North  Carolina  in  the Elite  Eight  on
 Tuesday.  Amber Orrange  netted 18  points, Mikaela  Ruef had  a double-double
 with 11 points and 13 rebounds and Lili Thompson also poured in 11 points.
 
 For  PSU (24-8),  Ariel Edwards led the  way with 22 points, while Dara Taylor
 and Talia East netted 11 and 10 points, respectively.
 
 PSU  actually  held a  four-point lead  midway through the  first half, but it
 quickly lost control when Stanford ripped off a furious 25-4 run. The Cardinal
 finished  the  frame shooting  47.4  percent  from  the  field and  carried  a
 comfortable 44-30 lead into intermission.
 
 Stanford's advantage never dipped below 11 in the second stanza, and it used a
 17-4 surge late in the game to make it a blowout.
 
 The  Cardinal won the rebounding battle, 41-33, and scored 23 points off of 15
 PSU turnovers.
