STANFORD, Calif. - Hannah Jump hit three early 3-pointers and six in all on the way to 20 points and No. 2 Stanford quickly ran away from Arizona State, beating the Sun Devils 101-69 for its eighth straight victory.

Birthday girl Cameron Brink contributed 17 points, 14 rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots, and Haley Jones had 16 points, seven boards and a pair of steals. The Cardinal (14-1, 2-0 Pac-12) jumped out to a 22-5 lead and kept going.

A special guest at Maples Pavilion for the New Year's Eve tilt: 95-year-old Rita VanDerveer, mother of Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer. Rita was treated to seeing highly touted 6-foot-7 freshman star Lauren Betts make her first five shots in the fourth quarter for 10 points.

Tyi Skinner scored 20 points and junior transfer from Kentucky Treasure Hunt added 19 for Arizona State (7-6, 0-2), which shot just 4 for 20 in the opening quarter to fall behind 26-13.

The Cardinal - ranked second for the 21st straight week dating to last season - are unbeaten since their lone loss in a 76-71 overtime defeat Nov. 20 to No. 1 and defending NCAA champion South Carolina.

Stanford has won 50 straight games against unranked opponents and 36 consecutive contests against Pac-12 teams including the past two conference titles and postseason.

No team has scored more than 77 points against the Cardinal since the start of the pandemic-shortened 2019-20 season.

BRINK'S BIRTHDAY

For her 21st birthday, Brink was cheered by her parents, Greg Brink and Michelle Bain-Brink along on the baseline along with Sonya Curry and Sydel Curry-Lee with her 1-year-old little guy Daxon Wardell-Xavier Lee, also son of former Warriors and current Suns forward Damion Lee.

Brink bounced the baby in her arms afterward.

And it was another block party, indeed: Brink has swatted 45 shots through the first 15 games. She has at least one block in every game and has had at two in all but three contests.
