Cameron Brink and Haley Jones led Stanford at both ends of the floor Friday, as the No. 3 ranked Cardinal held off Oregon State 63-60 in women’s basketball at Maples Pavilion.

Brink scored 21 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and blocked six shots for the Cardinal (20-2 overall, 8-1 Pac-12), while Jones was next with 17 points, eight boards and a block.

Timea Gardiner was the top scorer for Oregon State (11`-9 overall, 3-6 Pac-12) with 16 points, hitting 7 of 11 field goal attempts, including 2 of 3 behind the arc. Bendu Yeaney added 15 points to go with five rebounds, three steals and two assists.

Brink’s layup broke a 58-58 tie with 3:28 left in the fourth quarter, giving Stanford the lead. But Bendu Yeaney’s jumper in the lane tied the game again for OSU at 60-60.

Jones sank a pair of free throws at 1:02 of the fourth, and hit 1 of 2 foul shots at :23 to give the Cardinal a 63-60 lead. The Beavers’ Noelle Mannen missed a 3-pointer with seven seconds left, and after a Stanford foul on the rebound, Talana Lepolo stole the ball from Mannen with two seconds remaining.

Stanford held a 39-31 rebounding edge. The Cardinal was 22 of 54 from the field (41 percent), including 4 of 16 from 3-point range. OSU also shot 41 percent (25 of 61), while hitting 8 of 19 3’s. The Beavers were 2 of 2 on free throws, while Stanford was 15 of 18.

Cal Bears podcast with Michael Duca: Cal in rematch with Stanford Saturday at Maples Pavilion

While the Cal Bears are relieved to have guard Devin Askew (55) back in the line up on Sun Jan 22, 2023 seen here against the Oregon State Beavers they took a 20 points loss. Askew had been out of the line up since Dec 29, 2022 missing five games (photo by KLC fotos)

On the Cal Bears podcast with Michael:

#1 Porous defense, non-existent shooting, and inattention to detail the Cal Bears (3-17) were guilty across the board on Sunday afternoon in a 20 point 68-48 loss at Cal to the Oregon State Beavers (8-12). Also how important was it to get guard Devin Askew back in the line up.

#2 Coach Mark Fox admitted his team missed the directive regarding an early shot at the end of the first half. That allowed Oregon State to cap a 13-0 run ending the first half with Jordan Pope’s jumper as time expired. And the defense as a whole?

#3 In the second half, the Bears had more turnovers (11) than made baskets (6). In an unsightly first 20 minutes, the Bears started 3 of 17 and finished 4 of 23 after a scoreless stretch across their final, six possessions.

#4 Add it all up, and Cal may have squandered its best remaining opportunity for a win this season. The visiting Beavers ended a six-game losing streak–and an 18-game road skid.

#5 The Bears will head back to the drawing board again as they tip off against the Stanford Cardinal (7-12) this Saturday. The last time these two clubs met the Bears had won three of their last four games when defeated Stanford 92-70 in Berkeley on Jan 6th.

STANFORD, Calif. — The Stanford Cardinal (6-12, 1-7 Pac-12) made it impossible for the Oregon State Beavers (7-12, 1-7 Pac-12) to chew through their bark and finally obtain a conference win, 67-46.

The Cardinal never trailed the initial 20 minutes of the game. At one point they went on a 9-0 run and led by as much as 17 points, then kept a nine-point advantage at intermission, 31-22.

Stanford senior forward Spencer Jones led all players in scoring at the midway juncture (13) while converting three 3’s.

The second half started off with the industrious rodents biting into the lead, reducing the deficit to one point at the 17:33 mark of the second stanza. Oregon State accomplished this feat by garnering a 16-0 run encompassing the end of the first half and beginning of the second half.

The Cardinal staved off the Beavers attack and pushed the lead up to as high as 24 points on a 17-0 run themselves. They were never threatened again in the contest.

The Jones “Brothers,” Spencer and Michael both led the way for the Cardinal with 18 points apiece and four bombs from beyond the arc, respectively. Sophomore forward Maxime Raynaud gave his squad 12 points and six rebounds, while fellow second year underclassman Harrison Ingram tallied eight points, eight rebounds and six assists for the cause,

Sophomore forward Glenn Taylor Jr. led OSU with 11 points, as their only player in double-figure scoring.

Stanford will host the Oregon Ducks Saturday, January 21, and Oregon State crosses the Bay (Berkeley) to challenge the California Golden Bears Sunday, January 22.

#3 Harrison Ingram and Spencer Jones each had 14 points. Ingram had nine rebounds and six assists, Jones had eight rebounds.

Cal Bears football podcast with Morris Phillips: In order to beat Stanford, Cal needs to drum up some offense; Big Game this Saturday on tap at Cal

On the Cal Bears podcast with Morris:

#1 A 38-10 Cal Bears (3-7) loss at Oregon State (7-3) on Saturday was the team’s sixth in a row dating back to September 24 when the Bears improved to 3-1 by blowing out Arizona.

#2 The five losses that followed were competitive at some point during the four quarters. That wasn’t the case against the Beavers on a cold, misty night in Corvallis.

#3 Cal trailed at the half 21-7 after their offense hit a new low with just 53 yards of total offense before the break. The visitors fell in a deeper hole when Oregon State scored on their first two possessions in the third quarter to lead 31-7.

#4 “We haven’t played up to the standard that we’ve set as a team,” coach Justin Wilcox said. “We haven’t coached well enough, we haven’t played well enough. It is totally unacceptable.”

#5 Stanford and Cal match up for the Big Game this Sat at Cal Berkeley a 2:30pm kick off who’ll get the Ax this season?
