Posted By Adrian Fedkiw On Jan 14 2011 @ 5:14 pm In NCAABK | No Comments
Stanford- 58 Washington- 56
Josh Owen’s tip in with 29 seconds left proved to be the game-winner for Stanford as they upset the Huskies.
With the loss of forward Landry Fields, Stanford was overlooked heading into the season with third year coach Johnny Dawkins at the helm.
In Dawkins first two years, the Cardinal finished eighth and ninth in the Pac 10.
This is a win that got Stanford into the bubble discussion. It’s a great home win for them against a quality opponent early on in Pac 10 play. They’ve put themselves in a good position early on in conference play after some tough losses in non-conference play. Now they have to go out and win some more games in the Pac 10. A 12-6 mark in conference play could lead to a NCAA Tournament appearance.
Junior guard Jeremy Green is Stanford’s top scoring option and arguably the best shooter in the Pac 10. He scored 12 last night.
The main culprit of Stanford’s turnaround has been the play of freshmen Dwight Powell, Aaron Bright, Anthony Brown and Andy Brown.
Josh Owens took a medical redshirt last season due to an undisclosed illness. His return this season has been huge. He had 14 points last night including the game-winner.
TOP 3 PERFORMANCES
There’s only seven games on the slate tonight.
Tough road game for Butler, but I think they find a way to win.
The MAAC crown is wide open this year with Siena having a down season. Rider and Iona are tied for second in the conference,
I’ll take the Broncs at home.
Derek Needham and the Stags look to stay undefeated in the MAAC on the road.
