On the Headlines Podcast with London:

It was a night of the Stanford Cardinal freshman made a come back after two tough loses with Kansas and Cal. Stanford led by some really needed three pointers from Dorian Pickens help get the Cardinal a 107-99. Pickens for Thursday night scored 24 points. We haven’t seen Stanford play like this in a long time. It was a great win it would interesting to see how USC who comes in and coming off a win at Cal on Thursday night to see what they can do when they come to Stanford on Thursday.

The Cardinal have got some nuggets of success in pockets. First of all they hit the jack pot with freshman Issac White whose been a playmaker on or off the bench. The Cardinal also had Kezie Okpala who hit a jump shot in the overtime to tie up the ball game 91-91. Oscar De Silva feed Okpala who dunked and gave Stanford a 93-91 lead.
