Cardinal Trounce Ducks, 72-43
Feb. 7, 2008
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Candice Wiggins had 25 points, eight rebounds and four assists, and No. 6 Stanford rode a commanding first half to a 72-43 victory over Oregon on Thursday night.
The 29-point win is Stanford's largest margin of victory in Eugene since 1991. Nicole Canepa had 12 points for Oregon (10-13, 4-8), which shot 32.1 percent.
The Ducks made their first shot to start the game before the Cardinal rolled off 23 consecutive points to take control. Wiggins, a senior guard who last week broke Stanford's all-time scoring record, then connected on three consecutive baskets, and Appel followed with a layup to push the Cardinal lead to 40-10 with 4:20 left in the half.
Stanford was 20-for-34 (.588) in the first half and led 46-12 at the break. Wiggins (15 points) and Pedersen (13) each outscored Oregon in the first half.
