Defense: A+

That's what Tara wrote on the white board in the locker room at half time.

The Cardinal's Big Bear defense held Devanei Hampton to 3 points, Ashley Walker to 10, and Cal to a season-low 30.8 field goal percentage.
A+ indeed!

    In a much-hyped game between two top-10 teams, California fell to Stanford 72-52. While Cal’s defense has been ranked atop the Pac-10, it was Stanford’s defense that had a stranglehold on this game from the opening tip.

    JJ Hones found her long range shot and the Stanford women's basketball team found new life with its 72-52 victory over visiting California on Saturday in a crucial Pac-10 contest in front of 6,175 fans at Maples Pavilion.

  • Appel's fancy passing - a revelation - helps Stanford women stuff Cal by Gwen Knapp (San Francisco Chronicle

    She scored only nine points, yet made the offense flow. She recorded seven assists, a hefty number, but not enough to describe her textbook passing out of post. If a coach ever wants to teach a young center how to handle a double-team, a videotape from this game will do the job.
