Marco Garcia/APStanford's Amber Orrange drives down the court against Prairie View A&M on Sunday.

HONOLULU — Erica McCall had 13 points and nine rebounds as No. 5 Stanford routed Prairie View A&M 88-45 Sunday, the final day of the Rainbow Wahine Shootout.

Lili Thompson and Briana Roberson had 12 points apiece and Amber Orrange added 11 points for the Cardinal (5-2).

Prairie View A&M opened a 6-4 lead in the opening minutes before Stanford turned it on, going on a 23-0 run and never looking back.

The Cardinal led by as many as 45 points following Erica Payne's 3-pointer from the left corner with 8:20 left in the game.

Stanford shot 54.5 percent from the field, including 11 of 18 on 3-pointers, and made 17 of 21 from the free throw line. It was the second consecutive game that it shot above 50 percent from the field and over 60 percent on 3-pointers.

Karlie Samuelson knocked down 3 of 6 3-point attempts to chip in nine points and Kaylee Johnson added eight rebounds, three blocks and two steals for the Cardinal.

Stanford's bench outscored Prairie View A&M's, 39 to 19. All 14 players that suited up for Stanford played at least four minutes and 13 of them scored at least two points.

Prairie View shot just 13.3 percent from the field in the first half and 24.6 percent for the game.

The outsized Lady Panthers struggled against Stanford's height in the post. They were out rebounded 47-28 and were outscored 14-8 on second-chance points.

Jeanette Jackson led the Lady Panthers (0-6) with 12 points.

Prairie View went scoreless in the final 4:51 of the first half and trailed Stanford 52-18 at halftime.

It was the third game in three days for both teams.

TIP-INS

Stanford: After a 70-54 loss to 11th-ranked North Carolina Friday, the Cardinal rebounded with a pair of double-digit wins. They beat tournament-host Hawaii Saturday, 86-73.

Prairie View A&M: The winless Lady Panthers are in familiar territory having started last season with an 0-10 non-conference mark, but rebounded with an 11-7 mark in the Southwestern Athletic Conference and won the SWAC Tournament to qualify for their fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament.
