Cardinal cruise in exhibition

As promised, the Cardinal won its first game of the season by committee. Everyone (except Morgan & Hannah, who were not in uniform) played with intensity and skill, and everyone scored.

Lindy led all scorers with 21 points off seven (of 13) beautiful three-pointers. Jeanette, who looks even stronger and better than last season, set the tone with 19 points, eight rebounds, three assists and three steals. Jayne, Nneka and Sarah also scored in double figures.

The team spirit was emphasized by what I hope will be a new Cardinal tradition -- the team gathered at center court after the game, joined their uplifted hands, and shouted STANFORD!

Here is the AP game recap and the box score from Stanford Athletics and a game report by Michelle Smith (SF Chronicle).
