This is the Stanford team that began the season 11-0 and looked like it could be a contender in the conference. Anthony Goods was sparkling in the second half with 17 points and Stanford used solid shooting to hand Oregon State its fourth straight loss.
About a week ago, I was convinced Craig Robinson was Pac-10 Coach of the Year over Lorenzo Romar, but after the Beavers lost their last four games, I give the nod to Romar. Oregon State still have a long way to go. It shot 39 percent in the second half, hit just one 3-pointers and appeared flat after solid victories over Cal and Stanford two weeks ago.
Back with quotes, notes and a look at Game 2: Oregon-Washington State.
