No. 1 Baylor 59, No. 2 Stanford 47
In the end, Brittney Griner and undefeated Baylor proved to be
too tall a task for surging Stanford.
So once again, the Cardinal will head home without that elusive
Stanford just can’t seem to get over the hump, losing to the
Lady Bears 59-47 on Sunday night in the NCAA semifinals. This was
the Cardinal’s fifth straight trip to the Final Four and they have
yet to cut down the nets in two decades.
Stanford was on a roll, too, reeling off a school-record 32
consecutive wins. The Cardinal’s only loss this season came at
Connecticut in early November.
And yet few gave Stanford (35-2) much of a chance to win against
favored Baylor (39-0), which will face Notre Dame for the
championship on Tuesday night.
