STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford's special season is ready for the next stage.
Candice Wiggins had 20 points, three rebounds and two assists, and the third-ranked Cardinal completed an undefeated home season with an 84-41 victory against overmatched Oregon State on Saturday.
Stanford won its 17th straight game to go unbeaten at home for the first time since 1996-97, the last season the Cardinal reached the Final Four.
"It's a wow season," Cardinal coach Tara VanDerveer said. "We just want to keep putting those exclamation points on that. We want nine exclamation points on that wow."
She was referring to three wins in the conference tournament, then the six wins it would take to be NCAA champions.
Brooke Smith added 14 points as the Cardinal won its 37th straight Pac-10 home game.
NO. 6 BAYLOR 84, COLORADO 65: Emily Niemann scored a season-high 20 to help the Bears clinch at least a share of the Big 12 title for the first time. Baylor maintained a one-game lead over Texas Tech and Texas with one game left for all three.
