Nov. 21, 2006
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -Candice Wiggins scored 21 points and No. 11 Stanford kicked off the toughest week of its schedule with a 75-60 victory over previously unbeaten Missouri on Tuesday night.
Kristen Newlin added 14 points and 10 rebounds and Brooke Smith had 14 points and six boards for the Cardinal (2-1), who were back to their usual focused selves on their home floor in Maples Pavilion. Now they hit the road for back-to-back games against top 10 teams.
First up is No. 4 Tennessee in Knoxville on Friday, followed by a road date with eighth-ranked Georgia on Sunday. Pat Summitt's Lady Vols have won the last 10 meetings in the series with Stanford, which began in 1988.
Alyssa Hollins scored 14 points, Jessra Johnson 12 and Tiffany Brooks 11 for a physical Missouri team (3-1), which saw the momentum turn in Stanford's favor when the Tigers lost their composure late in the first half.
