STANFORD, Calif. - Cameron Brink had 25 points, 14 rebounds and three blocked shots, Haley Jones added 25 points, 12 boards and a pair of blocks, and No. 4 Stanford beat eighth-ranked Utah 74-62.

Hannah Jump made her first five shots and scored 13 points on a night when the Cardinal lost freshman point guard Talana Lepolo to a left foot injury in the first quarter.

Stanford (18-2, 6-1 Pac-12) earned its 18th straight home win against conference opponents.

Alissa Pili scored 25 points and Gianna Kneepkens had 19 for Utah (15-2, 5-2), which had previously lost at Colorado on Jan. 6. Utah shot 3 for 13 from deep in the first half to fall behind 41-32.

The Utes jumped ahead 10-2 and 12-5 before Stanford's 7-0 run over a 1:15 spurt.

LEPOLO HURT

Lepolo fell midway through the first quarter and was able to walk off the court on her own but didn't play again. She returned to the bench late in the period without a shoe on her left foot and a big ice bag on the ankle, then was in a walking boot after halftime.

BIG PICTURE

Utah: The Utes moved up two spots in this week's poll to match the highest ranking in program history and their 10 straight weeks in the poll are their most ever. Utah had been 2-0 against ranked opponents, the team's first time beating multiple ranked teams in the same season since 2005-06. ... The Utes have scored 64 or fewer points in all but two meetings with Stanford since 2007. ... They shot 5 of 26 on 3s.

Stanford: Junior G Agnes Emma-Nnopu moved into the starting lineup in place of Kiki Iriafen. ... Brink reached 66 blocks for the season and she has swatted at least one shot in every game. She had 88 as a freshman and 91 last season. ... Stanford leads the all-time series vs. Utah 31-1 including the last eight in the series all by double digits. The Cardinal have scored at least 68 points in every matchup since 2016. ... Stanford is 11-1 at home.
