Top-seeded Stanford has been eliminated by fourth-seeded Georgia. proxy.espn.go.com/ncw/boxscore?g… #NCAAW— ESPN Women's Hoops (@ESPN_WomenHoop) March 31, 2013
So I did think the Georgia Bulldogs had a good chance to win this game: they're athletic and statistically similar to California Golden Bears in some key ways.
But I didn't think it would actually happen.
Georgia beat Stanford 61-59 after the Stanford Cardinal's execution fell apart in the final minute of the game.
Chiney Ogwumike led the Cardinal with 26 points and 12 rebounds but the Bulldogs were more balanced with three players in double figures, including Jasmine James with a team-high 16 points and game-high five assists.
Once again, Pac-12 fans miss out on the rubber match between Cal and Stanford because someone else stepped up to prevent them from advancing.
A lot more to say about this game, but
I CAN'T BELIEVE THE CARDINAL DIDN'T LIGHT IT UP FROM THREE THE WAY THEY DID AGAINST MICHIGAN what surprised you most about this one?
