Stanford NCAA Basketball Update: Stanford Struggles In First Half, Trails Tulsa 25-19

The Stanford Cardinal are struggling for the second straight night as they trail the Tulsa Golden Hurricane 25-19. Stanford got off to a slow start yesterday trailing Murray State 29-18 at the half. The Cardinal battled back but could never get closer than four. They’ll obviously be looking to do just a little bit better tonight.

Stanford was led in the first half by Josh Owens who scored six points, while five other players added two points apiece. The Golden Hurricane are being led by Jordan Clarkson’s ten points. Tulsa’s lack of depth is showing as only four players have scored for them. They’ll get some points elsewhere but I wouldn’t expect more than a handful of points from the rest of the team.

Stanford is leading the battle on the boards 17-15 but has struggled with nine turnovers. I’d imagine Stanford will expand their lead on the boards if they can keep this close. They’ll need to use their deeper bench to wear down the thin Golden Hurricane if they want to pull out the win in the second half.
