Stanford 108, Cal Poly 40

STANFORD, Calif. - Haley Jones scored on a layin 14 seconds into the game and wound up with 16 points and 10 rebounds playing for the first time in more than 10 months since a knee injury ended her freshman season early, leading No. 2 Stanford past Cal Poly 108-40.

Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer began her 35th season on The Farm by moving to 1,095 career wins - four from passing the late Pat Summitt's 1,098 victories to become the all-time winningest NCAA Division-I women's basketball coach.

Stanford (1-0) used a 26-2 run to end the first half and build a 51-18 lead then kept pushing as the entire roster gained valuable minutes.

Stanford senior and returning leading scorer Kiana Williams scored 13 points. Cameron Brink, a 6-foot-4 freshman, contributed 17 points and nine rebounds in her collegiate debut while Lexie Hull had 21 points with four 3-pointers.

Jones shot 6 for 10 in her first game since sustaining the right knee injury Jan. 19 at Oregon State in her 18th career game. She averaged 11.4 points and 4.2 rebounds to start the season before getting hurt, earning 13 starts.

Cal Poly senior forward Sierra Campisano was the lone player to score in double figures for the Mustangs (0-1) with 13 points.
