Stanford vs ASU: It's championship time!

By Lara Boyko - March 05, 2007

Here we are on day four of the Pac-10 tournament.

After eight games, it all comes down to this - No 1 seed Stanford vs. No. 2 seed ASU.

While both teams are already assured of making the NCAA tournament (Stanford is currently ranked No. 6/8 in the country while ASU is No. 8/7), this game is purely for bragging rights and another trophy to take home.

Stanford has walked away winners after both regular season games this year (77-71 and 73-65), so ASU is hoping that the third time will be the charm in beating the Cardinal this year.

The key to an upset tonight will be shutting down Stanford's Candice Wiggins (if that's possible).

Stay tuned, it's game time!

Before the game even starts, the performance of the night goes to the girl from Girl Scout troop 863 who had the misfortune of carrying the American flag. Normally this would never been a bad thing, but right before the National Anthem started and as she was raising her flag, the pole that she was holding broke in two. Yes, down came the American flag in front of the couple of thousand fans already in their seats.

While this single event may send her into therapy for years to come, the young lady calmly picked up the flag and proudly held the broken pole with the flag held high through the singing of the anthem. While the audience applauded her for keeping it together through one of the most humiliating experiences possible, instead of the cheers, I think that everyone should buy a box of cookies from her.

Come on, there has to be at least one person who is in the San Jose area that is reading this blog and craving a thin mint cookie right about now.
