Stanford vs. Arizona: And another one goes home

By Lara Boyko - March 03, 2007

At the end of the first half, I thought I would get my upset for the weekend as Arizona pulled within two.

I kept hoping to see the Wildcats overcome slim deficits, but it wasn't in the cards.

Instead, Stanford dominated the game (in points in the paint (30), points off turnovers (20), second chance points (11), fast break points (8) and rebounds (43), and lives to see tomorrow with their final score of 65-55.

Not only did Stanford dominate with the talent and skill of Wiggins, but with ther huge presence of Jayne Appel, the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year, and her 18 points and 13 rebounds, and Jillian Harmon, who finished with 11 points, the height advantage was too much for Arizona to match up against.

Sure the quickness of Ashley Whisonant, who fouled out with 38.9 left on the clock and recorded a team-leading 18 points, helped, but it just wasn't enough.

As Arizona packs their bags tonight, Stanford goes back to rest up for their game against the winner of the USC vs. Washington game tomorrow at 4:30 pm.

Stay tuned, the prime time game is coming up next!
