Stanford Women’s Basketball Makes Some Noise of Their Own

On a night owned by Stanford football, even though it should be. (We’re going to the Rose Bowl!) Stanford women’s basketball had a great game themselves, as they defeated the UC Davis Aggies soundly by the final score of 87-38. With the win Stanford improves to a 7-0 record, matching the most wins they have ever had in the month of November, tied with the 2002 season. Stanford also for the fourth time in nine years has gone undefeated in the month of November.

Stanford was led by who other than Chiney Ogumieke tying her career best 27 points. The junior pre-season All-American also had 13 rebounds, six of which came on the offensive side of the ball. Stanford out rebounded the Aggies 62-24, tying their all-time 4th best game in rebounds. Toni Kokenis had a good game as well, scoring nine of the Cardinal’s first 13 points, all of which came on 3-pointers.

It was the defense that led Stanford to the victory, allowing only 19 first half points. The Cardinal had also held UC Davis scoreless the final 5:15 of the first half and the first minute and a half of the second half. UC Davis was without a field goal in that time span up until 17:16 of the second half, when Blair Shinoda nailed a three pointer.

The freshman all had quite a good game for Stanford, all seeing time. Tess Picknell had three rebounds, while Kiran Lakhian had two points as well as three rebounds. Walk-on freshman Denia Ebersole, however stole the show towards the end of the game nailing two three pointers.

A down side of this game was when Sophomore forward Bonnie Samuelson went down with an ankle injury in the first half. I personally didn’t see the injury, but one can assume a twisted or rolled ankle as she hobbled off of the court.

The Cardinal return to action in Spokane Washington on Sunday to take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Tip-off is set for 2:00 pm and as always you can hear the game live on KZSU 90.1 FM.
