More Big Game reports

Not tired of reading about the Big Game yet? Here are a few more reports:
  • Stanford holds its ground by Ann Killion (Mercury News)

    The event had everything: Hype, national rankings, a big crowd, everything it needed to overshadow the men's matchup across the bay. Everything, that is, except much of a game.

  • Paint it Cardinal by Michelle Smith (San Francisco Chronicle)

    Maybe Cal is ready for its turn in the Pac-10 women's spotlight, but Stanford isn't relinquishing its spot just yet.

  • Stanford shows, Cal barely there by Eric Gilmore (Contra Costa Times)

    In their biggest game of a historically good season, the Bears were no-shows. OK, not literally. Their bus showed up at Maples. But the Bears left their "A," "B" and "C" games behind in Berkeley. Instead of the so-called Battle of the Bay, we had the Blowout by the Bay.

  • Cal women can't handle big-time stage by Carl Steward (Inside Bay Area)

    Changing of the guard in Pac-10 women's basketball? Sorry, ladies, not yet, not until Cal figures out how to guard Candice Wiggins a whole lot more efficiently. Better neutralizing Jayne Appel and solving Stanford's stifling interior defense would improve the Golden Bears' chances as well, and hey, a change of venue certainly probably wouldn't hurt.
