No. 4 Stanford rolls No. 24 Colorado 

Stanford celebrates

Coming into this week, Stanford had two tough tests against ranked conference opponents. The Cardinal took down No. 8 Utah earlier this week and today beat No. 24 Colorado 62-49. 

Stanford flexed its defensive prowess, holding the Buffaloes to 28.8% from the field and recording 14 blocks.

Cameron Brink swatted away six Colorado shots, which doesn’t even match her season-high (eight blocks). Brink also scored 14 points and five rebounds. Hannah Jump paced Stanford with a game-high 21 points and five 3-pointers. 

Newly-ranked Colorado came in as a threat to a Stanford squad that was upset last week against Southern California, but the Buffaloes never led in the game. 

The Cardinal has proven to rebound from the loss to stay atop the Pac-12. Stanford continues its home stand against Oregon State and Oregon.
