Stanford's Amber Orrange hits game-winner against UCLA to win Pac-12 tournament title

Highlights from the Stanford Cardinal's 51-49 win over the UCLA Bruins in the 2013 Pac-12 Tournament championship game.

C&R summarized the main points of the Stanford Cardinal's 51-49 win over the UCLA Bruins in the Pac-12 Tournament championship game by highlighting the play of Amber Orrange, who hit the game-winning shot.

C and R were worried all year that Stanford was one-dimensional and without Chiney to score, and would not have anyone step up. It never happened, until now, a championship game.

But Stanford guard Amber [Orrange] decided she would do whatever it took to score...As we have mentioned, Orrange doesn’t get many assists per game (none in this one) but she can drive and she can pull up and hit a jumper. And she did. She scored a career high 20 points and was the only Stanford player in double figures.

While it may be true that Orrange hasn't been an assist machine, Stanford has needed her to be an extra scorer this season. She has given them exactly what they needed in shooting 47.4% from the field and showing the ability to hit the three. Last night, she gave them exactly what they needed in simply refusing to let her team give in to adversity.
