Stanford Upsets No. 22 Cal 75-69
Jan. 17, 2009
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Lawrence Hill matched his career high with 25 points and Stanford spoiled former coach Mike Montgomery's return to Maples Pavilion in charge of No. 22 California with a 75-69 victory Saturday night.
The Cardinal's big win in the season's first meeting for Bay Area bragging rights snapped Cal's nine-game winning streak and also might have knocked the Golden Bears out of the Top 25 after they got back in the poll for the first time since 2003.
Anthony Goods added 19 points and Landry Fields 15 points, five rebounds and two blocks for Stanford (12-3, 2-3 Pac-10), which avoided dropping three in a row for the first time since ending the 2006-07 season by losing three straight.
Jamal Boykin scored a career-high 22 points for Cal (15-3, 4-1).
