Heading into Arizona for another road trip after two road wins last weekend, the No. 4 Stanford Cardinal (15-1, 4-0 Pac-12) boasts two players that are receiving lots of recognition for their prowess on the court. Senior forward Chiney Ogwumike was named Pac-12 Player of the Week for the sixth time this season, while junior guard Amber Orrange was named to the watch list for the Lieberman Award, awarded to the best point guard in the nation.
After struggling to a win against a tough Arizona State team on Thursday, the Stanford women’s basketball team completed its sweep of the Arizona schools with a 91-51 blowout over Arizona on Saturday.
Many years ago, French botanist Andre Aubreville wrote, “The desert always menaces.” And for the Stanford women’s basketball team, that fact was never truer than on Thursday night.
