March Madness: Stanford Women’s Streak Shut Down By Ole Miss

In the last game of the women’s NCCA tournament on Sunday, Ole Miss definitely shook up Stanford pretty good. Good enough to win. No. 8 Ole Miss upset, No. 1 seed Stanford, with a score of 54-49 on the Cardinal’s home court at Maples Pavilion.

Stanford definitely had a hard night, being sent home before the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2009. Ole Miss on the other hand advances to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2007.

How far can the Ole Miss Women go?

Coach Yolett McPhee took over in 2018, bringing defense to be a strong playing card for the team. We saw how much of an impact Coach Yolett made this last Sunday for sure.

What went wrong for Stanford?

Ole Miss’s amazing defense on the court was not matched by Stanford’s offense. Stanford has been needing to put in work on their offense for weeks now. We definitely saw how that affected this game. We did not see any of the younger players rise to the occasion. Cameron Brink led with 20 points and 13 rebounds; Haley Jones had 16 and eight. The rest of the team combined only had 13 points.

Said Brink after the game, “this Stanford team lacked grit this year”.

“It’s not the way that I wanted my senior year to end,” Jones told the media on Sunday. “I think it’s tough when you lose a game when you feel like as a team, this wasn’t your best all-around game.”
