2013 Pac-12 tournament: Stanford survives Colorado to advance to title game

All season the Stanford Cardinal have been looking for ways to become "less Chiney-centric" and yesterday against the Colorado Buffaloes they found someone else to step up.

With Colorado's defense forcing star Chiney Ogwumike held to 9-for-24 shooting from the field, Amber Orrange was that player yesterday, as described by C&R.

Thank goodness for guard Amber Orrange. She might not get a lot of assists per game, but her specialty is driving in and hitting pull up jumpers. And that she did. She would score 13 points for the game, and kept Stanford in it when Colorado would go up by a bucket or two. Then, you can only keep an Ogwumike down for so long, especially after she loses a contact.

With the win, Stanford faces the UCLA Bruins in the Pac-12 title game.

Head over to C&R's fan post to read more about the game. For more on the Pac-12 tournament, check out our storystream.
