Stanford rallies to dethrone OSU; captutestaggering 12th tourney title

Stanford rallies to dethrone OSU; captutestaggering 12th tourney title

"It's like tasting your favorite candy". "It's like tasting your favourite candy". Although that depends on how they perform in the Pac-12 Tournament.

On a day when the rest of the top seeds firmly held their grasp on their spots, Washington and OR promised to be a barnburner - a Pacific Northwest pairing pitting the veteran stars of Washington - Plum and Osahor, the nation's leading scorer and rebounder, respectively - against two of its brightest young talents in Oregon's freshmen duo of Ionescu (the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year) and post Hebard, the conference leader in field-goal percentage this season. Kennedy Burke added 11 points, but second-leading scorer Monique Billings was 3 of 14 shooting and finished with six points. This team is deep, has National Basketball Association ready talent, and can beat you in many ways. If you were Markelle Fultz would you want to play for this team again?

"And I think that's where I have confidence that we have a caliber of club that is an NCAA tournament caliber".

While Smith was carrying Stanford at the offensive end, the Cardinal shut down Oregon State and star Sydney Wiese.

Stanford slowly climbed back into the game and finally regained the lead early in the fourth quarter.

"Stanford's such a good defensive team", Wiese said. "You just got to attack them, '" Smith said.

Despite the two losses, VanDerveer said her team is playing well - the Cardinal routed No. 7 Washington State 66-36 in the quarters then ran past No. 6 OR in the fourth quarter for a 71-56 win in the semis on Saturday.

Ducks freshman Sabrina Ionescu, the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, cooly stepped to the free-throw line with 6.4 seconds to go and drained a pair of free throws.

Oregon Junior guard Lexi Bando led the Ducks with 23 points including 5 3-pointers and a key stretch in which she helped to erase a 60-51 Huskies lead with 9:00 to go in the game.

However, the strong first quarter gave way to a stagnant offense in the following quarters where the Beavers struggled to score, only posting seven points in each of the periods. The Ducks swept Cal in the regular season. The Beavers shot 32 percent from the field.

"Nothing surprised me, to be honest".

Tinkle declined to share specifics of what he said to the team but did acknowledge his remarks involved looking ahead amid the toughest year of his coaching career. A record crowd for a Tournament championship game filled KeyArena Sunday tonight to watch the Stanford Cardinal win a hard fought game over the Oregon State Beavers, 48-43 making Stanford the first No. 2 seed to win the tournament championship. The loss shouldn't penalize the Beavers when it comes to NCAA seeding, but any outside hope of landing a No. 1 seed is likely gone. There is nothing to be gained from playing Oregon State at this late juncture. Her absence was felt in the first half after Mikayla Pivec picked up her second foul and Oregon State's offence stagnated while she was on the bench.

Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said before the Pac-12 tournament that the victor of the event should be a No. 1 seed, and that the conference should get seven or eight teams in based on RPI.

Oregon State: The Beavers are all but assured of hosting NCAA first- and second-round games.
