Stanford Women Come Back from 10 Point Deficit to Beat Upset Minded Oregon in Closing Seconds 66-62


Sadly, Stanford Men’s Basketball drools
But Van DerVeere’s women rule
At Oregon on a floor with trees suffering from a yellowed drought
The women Ducks were shooting the lights out
Brink was a foul magnet on the bench
Lexie Hull’s errant shots were the smell of stench
For three quarters and most of the fourth down to the Ducks
Their unbeaten PAC 12 season chances in the trailing column stuck
Down by 10 Halley came on fire
Driving to the lane with speed that did not tire
Rebounding and blocking and sinking shots
A one-woman Duck wrecking crew so the no loss season not for naught
A memorable highlight clip shows a driving Halley Jones
Fouled to the floor and sinking the basket on her tail bone
Tough loss in the final minute for the Ducks 66-62
A never give up win for the Cardinal that refused to become unglued
Next Thursday at Maples to the Cougars declaw
To end with Senior Day against the Huskies to the fans once more awe
Then to the Pac 12 Tournament as the number one seed
To hopefully win and a springboard to the Final Four lead
Where the Gamecocks will not another Championship impede
While their well-coached talent and drive continues not to recede
