Stanford, Calif. ?- No. 14 Stanford (8-3, 3-0 Pac-10) had five players score in double-figures for an 86-58 win over Arizona (6-8, 0-2 Pac-10) on Thursday night in Maples Pavilion before a crowd of 3,230. The Wildcats start the Pac-10 season out with a 0-2 record for the first time since the 1992-93 season.
“This is a disappointing loss because we are not playing as well as we should,” head coach Joan Bonvicini said. “When the other team scores on us, we need to take it personal, and when we make mistakes, we need to make sure they don’t happen again.”
Stanford limited senior Joy Hollingsworth, Arizona's leading scorer, to a season-low two points on 0-of-8 shooting from the field.
Arizona opened the game with a jumper by freshman Rhaya Neabors to take a 2-0 lead, but Stanford raced out to a 13-4 advantage at the 13:57 mark, as the Wildcats started off shooting 2-of-12 from the field.
