The sixth-ranked Stanford University (15-2, 12-2 Pac-12) defeated Washington (4-8, 1-8) 74-48 in Seattle on Sunday afternoon. Due to the Covid-19 agreement, this is the first time the Huskies have played at home in six weeks, followed by an away game in Oregon. Due to injuries, the home team did not have 3 players participating, including the planned scorer, freshman guard Tameiya Sadler, who contributed 12.3 points per game.
Stanford started the game with the same starter for the fourth consecutive time, including freshman forward Cameron Brink, who scored the first point of the game. Throughout the game, the Cardinal has never fallen behind. Midway through the first stage, Stanford’s fifth-year guard Anna Wilson took a double-digit lead after scoring a 5:04 layup, which brought her team a 17-7 Leading advantage.
“I think we started very well,” said Cardinals coach Tara VanDerveer. “We really jumped to 28 to 9.”
Entering the second quarter, the Cardinals have a 28-9 advantage with 59% (10-17) shooting, while the Huskies have 43% (3-7).
Stanford University started the second quarter with a score of 10-0, and Washington can recover and continue his short life. However, with a 29-point deficit, the increase in scoring is not enough to make an actual comeback attempt before the second half. During the break, the Cardinals led 22-19.
Both teams scored low at the beginning of the third season. Stanford’s offense stalled for about 4 minutes, while Washington fought and scored 18 points. However, the visitors ended this section with a score of 16-9 and entered the final stage with a 61-36 lead.
The Cardinals are slightly better offensively with the 13-12 Huskies. This is the sixth time this season their team has scored less than 50 points.
Overall, Stanford’s bench led Washington to 29-3. Sophomore guard Hanna Jump led the way, with 15 points off the bench.
VanDerveer said: “Hannah Jump came in and did a great job for us.” “She brought a lot of energy and knocked down the camera. You know she is defending hard and has a grumpy temper.”
The other three Stanford players completed a balanced scoring effort with double-digit results: senior guard Kiana Williams and junior guard Lexie Hull had 12 points and 4 rebounds, respectively. Sophomore guard Haley Jones also scored 12 points. Brinker also had four blocks, seven points and four rebounds.
Sophomore center Quay Miller chased the Eskimos with 14 points and 5 rebounds. She is the only Washington player with double digits. Junior forward Haley Van Dyke led her team to rebound with 8 rebounds and scored 9 points.
Washington will continue to be the host of USC and UCLA next weekend. Since the Santa Clara health regulations came into effect in late November, Stanford University has returned to the Bay Area for the first time, playing on the national courts, banning contact sports, and restricting tourist travel across the county border.
The cardinal will retaliate in Colorado on Friday, February 4. In the last outing between the two teams, Buffs defeated Stanford 77-72 as Boulder in an overtime thriller January 17.
