NCAA, Stanford Cardinal

Despite the score it was a close game between Stanford and Arizona at the McHale Center on Wednesday night in Tucson if you look at it the Cardinal were down by three at the half 35-32 they lost the second half 39-35. You have to contrast that from the first game when they met earlier in the Pac 12 season back on January 1 when Arizona came to Maples Pavilion and won it by 39 points. They blew out the Cardinal on New Years Day but lost by seven on Wednesday night.

Morale victories don’t count but Stanford head coach Jerod Haase has to be pleased with the play of his team. The one thing about this game the Cardinal sent the Wildcats to the free throw line for example Arizona’s leading scorer Allonzo Trier who scored 22 points on the night went to the foul line 12 times and converted 12 times. When the Cardinal played the foul game it really did foul up their chances at closing the gap on the Wildcats.
