Friday night’s win for the Stanford Cardinal over the Cal Bears was huge obviously you want to win the rivalry game and for them to come back the way they did in the second half it was like a 20-5 run and at one time the Cardinal were down by 12 and they came back and pulled off the win. It was really impressive by Stanford and it was impressive in a number of ways the Bears Jabari Bird and Ivan Rabb were doing their thing and the Cardinal were still able to pull off the win.

Dorian Pickens for Stanford had one of his better games of the year and the Cardinal had another strong performance from Reid Travis and a great job by the Cardinal drawing fouls and being aggressive and going to the line and putting players in trouble for Cal. It was a good all around win for Stanford. It was not the way you would necessarily would win games by going to the free throw line but Stanford head coach Jerod Haase would gladly take that.
