Taylor Greenfield appreciates the generosity of her teammates on the No. 1 Stanford women’s basketball team.
Greenfield scored a career-high 18 points, hitting six 3-pointers, to help the Cardinal trounce the Zags in Spokane on Sunday.
“It really shows what kind of team we are,” Greenfield said. “When someone is hot we find them. They want you to shoot until the streak ends.”
Chiney Ogwumike had 21 points and 11 rebounds for Stanford (8-0). Joslyn Tinkle added 16 points.
Greenfield was 6-for-8 from 3 point range as Stanford shot 49 percent from the floor to overwhelm Gonzaga early.
Taelor Karr and Haiden Palmer led cold-shooting Gonzaga (6-2) with 10 points each.
The Bulldogs shot just 25 percent in the game, in which Stanford looked every bit the top team in the nation while Gonzaga bore little resemblance to the team that has made three consecutive trips to the round of 16.
“Defensively we did some good things,” Gonzaga coach Kelly Graves said. “But you can’t expect to shoot 25 percent and beat anybody, let alone one of the best teams in the country.”
