SEATTLE — Amber Orrange and Lili Thompson led the second-half charge Friday night as No. 15 Stanford rallied to beat Washington 60-56

Thompson banked in a 3-pointer with a second left on the shot clock to put the Cardinal (11-4, 3-0 Pac-12) up 60-55 with 25.7 seconds remaining. The Huskies (12-3, 1-2) failed to get a good look from there.
