Candice sets new career scoring and free throw records

Lots of reports today of Candice's new Stanford career scoring record and the win over USC.

None of them mention that the free throw that tied Kate Starbird's record also broke the Stanford career free throw record (481) held by Val Whiting.

Wiggins passed Kate Starbird as Stanford's all-time leader when she grabbed an offensive rebound and converted it with 8:21 left to play in the first half.

It wasn't one of her soft-touch three-pointers, or an explosive drive through the lane that officially put Candice Wiggins in a class by herself. Instead, it was a simple put-back of a Jeanette Pohlen miss, a play that so perfectly encapsulates Wiggins' remarkable college career. Always at the right place at the right time.

“She’s right up there with anyone I’ve coached against,” Mark Trakh said. “She’s an exceptional player that will be very good on the next level. I’d rather sit in the stands and watch her play someone else. Her graduation day will be one to celebrate.”

"It's great to get it over with, the whole record thing," said Wiggins, who wasn't thinking about it before the game.
