Stanford & Cal among the best

Do you remember the three Stanford/Cal games last season?
  • The first one at Maples when the Cardinal's A+ defense shut down the Bears 72-52.
  • The last one, the Pac-10 Tournament Championship, when the Cardinal stunned the tired Bears in a 56-35 rout.
  • And the best one at Cal where 10,525 fans watched Stanford battle to a 60-58 victory. Remember the last 37 seconds when Stanford held on to its slim lead as Cal missed four shots and JJ, Kayla and Ros took turns missing a one-and-one?
Michelle Smith writes about the expectations and prospects of these two teams that are expected to be in the top 10 again this season.

Stanford is eager for another championship season. JJ says, "We've experienced the Final Four and everyone is definitely working really hard to get back." Kayla adds, "People understand what it takes to get there and we're doing it."

Cal has all five of their starters returning, and this is the last chance for the So Berkeley Trio (Devanei, Alexis and Ashley) to achieve their goal.
