Stanford Beats Maryland to Seek to Avenge First Loss This Season to Texas


In 2021 Texas, South Florida and South Carolina were the only three
That managed to defeat the Women’s Cardinal Tree
Now in March Madness revenge chances that will be sweet
Not against South Florida who went down in first round defeat
Texas plays the Cardinal in Elite 8 looking for earlier win to repeat
Hopefully unlikely as the Cardinal kept its victory from sliding back into the jaws of defeat
On Friday the Cardinal for three quarters kept the Terrapins in their shell
Slacked off in the 4th for Maryland to close the gap but Stanford heard the victory bell
In a Montana State almost déjà vu Fran Belibi stripped the ball and drove done the floor
Jumped high at the net with ball in hand but obeyed Tara’s command to dunk no more
The Cardinal on defense had all cylinders in unison and in play
On offense hot hands alternating to keep the lead going their way  
For Texas Brink needs to from fouling try harder to abstain
She can’t rebound, block or make shots while on the bench contained
Texas with  the “Remember the Alamo” cry avenged the Battle of Alamo loss
Stanford must respond with “Remember Maples Arena” to Texas hopes of Final Four be tossed
 A warning to the Gamecocks--stay off the grass don’t damage or cut the trees
In Women’s Basket against Stanford much harder to find two victories victories
