Appel, a growing force off the bench

By Michelle Smith, San Francisco Chronicle

The Stanford women's basketball team had its fill of the Courtney Paris hype last March.

Oklahoma's star freshman was the center of attention at the 2006 NCAA Tournament, the national media swooning over the supremely talented and charismatic Paris, who was winding down a record-breaking debut season.

Cardinal coach Tara VanDerveer casually pointed out during a news conference that she had her own freshman center coming in next season, one she hoped might approach Paris on the impact meter. (More ...)

Jayne's stats for the season:

28 19.3 13.5 .541 7.1

She has 53 blocked shots, the best in the Pac-10. The Stanford season record (by Cori Enghusen) is 58.
