The Good Guys Get One!

The Cardinal found the right opponent to right the ship, getting a win in Los Angeles for the first time in seven years! 59-47. Visiting Stanford grabbed 45 rebounds to USC's 19 and held Troy to 31% shooting. Ouch!

The Good Guys Get One!

The achievement-hungry Stanford Cardinal hit the boards and picked up a long-sought road win in Los Angeles for the first time since 2005.  On Sunday afternoon at the Galen Center, Stanford (17-8, 7-6 Pac-12) and U$C (6-20, 1-12 Pac-12) established which of the two programs has it somewhat more together, with the Cardinal collecting its first season sweep of the drain-circling Trojans since 2005. With five games remaining in the regular season, Stanford is looking to get to and above the 20-win mark, get to the post-season, and help hard-working senior Josh Owens finish his dunk-happy Stanford career on a high note.

Impressive true freshman guard Chasson Randle nailed all four of his second-half three-point attempts to help the Cardinal rout Troy in the second half after holding a slim 20-18 lead at halftime. USC can't shoot, USC can't score, USC can't rebound. Almost felt sorry for them. Stanford forward Andrew Zimmerman contributed 7 boards in 18 minutes, but I am not really sure what to say about the shaggy look these days, so I guess I should stop writing before I write something I regret. I sure hope it, whatever it is, is being done for charitable purposes!
