On the Stanford Cardinal podcast with Jerry F:
#1 The loss for Stanford (15-4) to Cal (8-10) certainly came at a big surprise as the Bears Paris Austin scored two free throws that clinched it for Cal 52-50.
#2 It was a battle and Stanford heard Cal’s footsteps all game long as Stanford took a 23-21 half time lead into the dressing room
#3 In the second half Cal clipped the Cardinal’s chances in the closing minutes of the game 31-27
#4 Cal had a 17-2 run on Stanford to catch up and although both teams scored a low total it was a cliffhanger all game long
#5 Stanford finds themselves in a very strange place on a two game losing streak coming off loses to USC and then Cal. The Cardinal face the Oregon State Beavers (12-8) they’ll be heavily relying on Oscar da Silva and Daejon Davis for tonight’s game.
