Report Card: Cal 64, Stanford 59

March 8, 2019

Two words: Connor. Vanover.

Often times, college hoops games come down to a deciding run or key play or two. Connor Vanover placed a hard first punch into Stanford’s gut and despite a few runs, the Cardinals were never able to recover from the initial blow.

Take a look at this sequence in the first half:

19:13: Vanover makes jumper (assisted by Sueing), Cal goes up 2-0

18:30: Vanover makes three (assisted by Austin), Cal goes up 5-2

17:58: Vanover makes three (assisted by Sueing), Cal goes up 8-2

17:36: Vanover block

15:57: Vanover dunks (assisted by Sueing), Cal goes up 10-2

Vanover would make another three, Sueing and Austin went back and forth with some layups, Stanford scored two points in the first seven minutes, and Cal would go 24-5 halfway through the first half.
