Stanford vs. San Diego: What They're Saying About The Victory

Stanford was happy to come away with Monday's win over the Toreros, however ugly it may have looked statistically.  The Cardinal shot 3-of-16 (.188) from 3-point land and 13-of-23 (.565) from the line, but still cruised to a 16-point victory. Here's a glance at what people are saying about the victory:

SF Chronicle: "[Josh] Owens looked a bit rusty but scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds in 23 minutes as coach Johnny Dawkins used a 12-man rotation."

"'Losing Landry [Fields to the NBA] kind of wakes everybody up because he did everything for us last year,' [Stanford guard Gabriel] Harris said. 'Now everybody has to come to the game ready ... instead of standing around and watching Landry.'"

SJ Mercury News: "[Andrew] Zimmerman's effort offset a horrible shooting night for the Cardinal, which had trouble from every corner of the gymnasium."

"But clampdown defense, a trademark of coach Johnny Dawkins, ruled the day. Stanford forced San Diego into 20 turnovers to effectively disrupt the Toreros' rhythm."

Stanford Daily: "Although head coach Johnny Dawkins is faced with the challenge of a youthful team, it worked to his advantage last night as the Stanford squad looked noticeably quicker on both ends of the floor."

Sign on San Diego"The Cardinal [were] the least ugly on the night and prevailed 64-48 before an estimated 4,000 listless fans in Maples Pavilion to avenge last year's loss in San Diego.

Stanford (1-0) never quite figured out USD’s zone, and star guard Jeremy Green finished with two points on 1-of-7 shooting."
