2017 Pac-12 Women's Basketball Tournament: Erica McCall leads Stanford past Oregon in semis
SEATTLE - Erica McCall had 17 points and 15 rebounds and No. 10 Stanford ended Oregon's run in the Pac-12 Tournament with a 71-56 win in the semifinals on Saturday night.
The Cardinal, the No. 2 seed in the tournament, will face top-seeded Oregon State in the championship game on Sunday night. It will be Stanford's 14th appearance in the tournament title game, having won 11 titles.
McCall was dominant on the interior in the second half as Oregon started to show signs of fatigue after having to play an opening-round game, then upsetting No. 11 Washington in the quarterfinals on Friday. McCall had 11 points and 11 rebounds after halftime, including five straight points midway through the fourth quarter as the Cardinal (27-5) finally pulled away.
Pac-12 freshman of the year Sabrina Ionescu and Maite Cazorla led Oregon (20-13) with 14 points.
