A hard fought battle from start to finish ends in yet another Stanford Cardinal victory. Stanford putting their conference winning streak on the line Tuesday night against probably their most formidable Pac-12 opponent. In a building where Stanford suffered this last Pac-12 loss Haas Pavilion Stanford was victorious by the final score of 62-53. The Cardinal were led by none other than Chiney Ogwumike with her 26 points in 40 minutes played (she was taken out with under a minute to go). The Junior Pre-Season All American was held to only six rebounds. For the second straight game she did not score a double-double. Amber Orrange had once again an outstanding game with 15 points and seven rebounds with 40 minutes as well.

On the other side of the ball a very well spread out game for the California Golden Bears besides Layshia Clarendon who had 17 points. Every player that had minutes tonight for Cal had at least one bucket. Sophomore sensation Britney Boyd was held to only nine points. However, Cal out-rebounded Stanford 45-31 with a majority coming on the offensive side of the ball. It was only the second time this season that Stanford was out-rebounded this season. The other time coming against Fresno St. where the Cardinal were only out-rebounded by three. California had 21 offensive boards with 22 second chance points. That was the key number in this contest. Without those second chance points Cal would have got killed, as they only shot 30% from the field.

In a game that was back and forth the entire game with eight different lead changes, it was really two different types of basketball. Cal with the up-tempo and Stanford with the half-court style. Stanford took advantage of the looks they had shooting 50% from the field. Tuesday also marked the first time since March 9th, 2012 where Stanford was scoreless from beyond the arc.

All in all it was a good hard fought game, where both teams played their style of play. In the end Stanford got the win, but one thing is for sure Sunday is going to be one hell of a game, where Stanford suffers their second loss of the season or Cal, their third to a top 5 opponent.
