On the Cardinal basketball podcast with Joey:
#1 Joey, it was a close one, but the Stanford Cardinal (6-4) just got by the San Jose State Spartans 78-73 in spite of the score. The Spartans gave the Cardinal a battle on their home floor at Maples Pavilion.
#2 For the Cardinal, sophomores Daejon Davis and KZ Okpala helped the Cardinal make up the deficit by halftime and were crucial in keeping up with the improving Spartans.
#3 The three-point game was the big balance for the Cardinal, helping them pull away from the feisty Spartans with 18 team assists.
#4 Stanford Sophomore Oscar da Silva exploded to hit four straight three-pointers in the second half, adding to his two first-half treys, going 9-13 for 23 points.
#5 The Cardinal hit the road and head up from Palo Alto to San Francisco for a battle with one of the NCAA’s best, the USF Dons (11-1), for a Saturday night battle at War Memorial Gym.
