Roundup: Another Final Four for Stanford women's hoops

Mikaela Ruef was at her best, Amber Orrange kept the team afloat in the first half and five Cardinal players scored in double figures. And while we’re at it, let’s check out some glammed-out North Carolina-Stanford game highlights from The Cardinal Channel.

Now we shall take you to Tempe, where Chans Cox is getting a chance to play Devil backer. He potentially has really big shoes to fill if he ends up playing that position, but nobody is expecting Cox to turn into Carl Bradford with the flick of a magic wand.
