On the Stanford Cardinal podcast with Michael Roberson:
#1 Michael, the Stanford Cardinal (29-5) handled the Sacred Heart Pioneers (19-14) rather handedly 92-49 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and they did it without high scorer Cameron Brink.
#2 Haley Jones picked up where Brink left off leading with 17 points Haley’s been a go to all season long.
#3 On defense the Cardinal held the Pioneers to 18 points in the first quarter, 8 points in the second quarter, 11 points in the third quarter, and 12 points in the fourth quarter.
#4 Michael, how important of a win is this for Stanford considering they opened the tournament without Brink and had to create plays and win that opening game.
#5 Michael, Stanford will carry on for their next opponent and their opponent will be well aware of the kind of season Stanford is having.
