Nov. 22, 2009
DAVIS, Calif. (AP) -Kayla Pedersen had 17 points and 11 rebounds in leading No. 2 Stanford past UC Davis 76-51 on Sunday.
Haylee Donaghe scored 11 points to lead the Aggies (2-2), who were coming off an 18-point win over San Francisco.
The Aggies scored the game's first five points but Stanford went on a 16-2 run to take control.
The Cardinal led at halftime, 42-25.
Stanford is the highest ranked team to play in Davis, drawing a crowd of 1,759 - more than three times what the Aggies drew for their home opener last Tuesday. Long lines of fans, students and otherwise, were on hand before the doors offically opened and the Aggies' band performed.
The Cardinal played their first game here in 32 years.
Sandy Simpson became the Aggies' winningest coach last year in leading the school during their transition to Division I.
Donaghe's younger sister, Hannah, plays for Stanford but was sidelined with an injury.
Stanford was bigger, stronger and deeper but that didn't stop the pesky Aggies from making a couple of runs during the second half.
The Cardinal left most of their starters in the game into the final minute.
