USC vs. Stanford: It's over...

By Lara Boyko - March 04, 2007


Welcome to the post-game wrap up of the Candice Wiggins show.

That's right, while she is being interviewed for Fox Sports, her teammates are heading into the locker room to enjoy the 67-52 victory.

While Wiggins led all scores for Stanford, and I think every other team in every game that has been played so far in this tournament, with 29 points on 10-13 shooting that included going 8-9 from the three point arch, Kristen Newlin led the Cardinal with 10 boards. The next closest shooting performance from a Stanford player was also by Newlin who finished with 10 points.

USC's effort was led by Shay Murphy with 16 points on 6-16 shooting and followed by Chloe Kerr with 14 points.

USC didn't do enough things well tonight to get the win, but they did out rebound Stanford by a slim 41-39. Along with having Wiggins on your side, USC learned painfully that you can't win a game when you shoot 31% from the field.

So as I wrap up the blog for today while listening to the second most obnoxious band in the Pac-10, the Stanford band, I wonder if there is anyone in women's college basketball that can stop the great Ms. Wiggins. After all, she may very well be the female version of Michael Jordan in today's game.

Any of the East coast bloggers like to chime in on this one?

Good night and tune in tomorrow.

Championship game is a 7:30 pm PT - No. 1 seed Stanford vs. No. 2 seed ASU.

Hard to win if you shoot only 31% from the field, even if you do out rebound your opponent. could just mean you're taking the ball out of the net A lot!! It would have helped USC immeasurably if they had played D on Wiggins from the 3 point line! That was 24 points, man!!!! I'm just saying... Maybe ASU will try to have a hand in her face some of the time when they meet in the conference championship final.
