Stanford's going to have it out with the Beavers at six o'clock Friday night (2/8). You need to be there. It's going to be a epic battle. On paper it's dead even - but that's where you and I come in - we're an important part of the Maple effect. Our team plays better at home - they feel better and they
As the season approaches its finale, the Cardinal players need to overcome their proclivity to shoot poorly away from home, but for this weekend we all need to be there in full voice. It's so great to have Maya back - and man will we need her. Their 6'-8" Polish player, Joanna Grymek, has about an 8" vertical, but that's been plenty in most of their games because she's so long. Maya has a bigger vertical is quicker off the floor, and that will enable her to rebound and shoot with Ms. Grymek.
Destiny Slocum is a transfer from Maryland and is a dynamite point guard. She's their highest scorer this year and will be a great matchup for Kiana. Staying in front of her on defense will be one of Kiana's biggest challenges this season.
The three-point shot is an important part of their offense. They lost Kat Tudor, their premier shooter, the same week we lost Nadia. Their second and third best shooters have stepped up to fill that void - Katie McWilliams and Aleah Goodman are both terrific.
I'm sure you remember Mikayla Pivec from last season, and this year she's just as tough and more effective. The same can be said for Taya Corosdale, good rebounder and decent scorer. So, Friday will be a big test. You need to bring your support and enthusiasm and let'em hear you.
We have a senior with that kind of performance in her. I'd love to watch Alanna take over the game on Sunday. You know all the Oregon players from last year, so I won't list them. They're all terrific. And it would be terrific to beat'em. It'll take a memorable performance - and that's what I'm looking for on Sunday.
