"The win marked the 100th at Maples Pavilion for Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins, who recently celebrated his 150th career coaching win.
Stanford jumped out to an early lead, shook off a scoring drought midway through the first half then closed on a 20-8 run to take a 41-35 halftime lead. Sheffield led the surge with nine points, including a layup in traffic with eight seconds remaining.
California, coming off back-to-back losses at Oregon and Oregon State, shot just 37.1 percent in the first half. Brown, the Bears' second-leading scorer who had 20 points in each of the losses, spent most of the time on the bench after picking up his second foul 3:15 into the game.
Stanford will have a week to prepare for its next contest against No. 18 Arizona. The Cardinal and Wildcats will square off in Maples Pavilion on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. PT."
Great win! Really proud of the effort and energy of our players. Great crowd tonight too. See you back here next Thursday night! #GoStanford— Johnny Dawkins (@Coach_Dawkins) January 15, 2016
