The sixth-ranked Stanford University (16-2, 13-2 Pac-12) defeated the University of Colorado (6-9, 4-8) at the 62-54 Maples Pavilion on Friday night. The Cardinals play on their home court for the first time since November 25, hoping to redeem themselves On January 17, on a road trip to Boulder, he lost 77-72 to Buffs in overtime..
When the Cardinals took a 37-15 lead at halftime and accumulated a 25-point lead in the third quarter, the game was out of control and turned into a battle for the fourth quarter. The fighting spirit Buffs allowed the Cardinals to score only 13 points in the fourth quarter and only 28 points on the visitors court.
“I like our first three quarters. Stanford University coach Tara Vandeville said: “I liked our first half very much, and I was disappointed in our second half. “She pointed to the team’s defense and the tendency to foul during the game, which is why Colorado is so close to another defeat.
“We have cushions,” Vandeville said. “And we can control that.”
After two months of driving on the road due to Santa Clara County’s health requirements banning contact sports, Stanford University made a balanced effort to compete line-to-line, but relied on freshman cards in the late game. Mellon Brink made a free throw to survive. Gain.
Colorado had to play without two starting guards: sophomore Jaylyn Sherrod and junior high school Aubrey Knight. After hip surgery in late January, Sherrod will be absent for the entire season. She averaged 10.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. She also led Buffs in steals. Knight sat on the bench with boots on his left foot and averaged 5.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.
Buffs made an impressive effort late in the game, scoring within six points of a 20:0 run led by forward Mya Hollingshed, who fouled with 2:22 left. However, Buffs did not compete with the stars. With about two minutes left, junior defender Lesila Finau nailed gray and scored a four-pointer.
After a free throw from Brink and a layup by sophomore forward Charlotte Whitaker, the Buffs team reduced the deficit to 4 points. Stanford University ended the quarter with a score of 7-4, and all these 7 points were free throws.
Senior guard Kiana Williams led the Cardinals with 16 points. Although she has only won two shots in the game, it was enough to make her a three-pointer in procedural history, ranking second in history, surpassing Jeanette Pohlen’s 268 and behind Candice Wiggins (295) level.
Brink scored 13 points, 8 rebounds and 6 blocks. Fifth-year guard Anna Wilson added 11 points, while junior guard Lacie Hull contributed 10 points and 7 rebounds.
Stanford University will stay at home against Utah on Sunday. Colorado crossed the bay for the California game that day.
