First Jeanette, then Nneka, now Kayla. Of course, C and R are talking about Stanford Women’s Basketball player Kayla Pedersen being named the PAC-10 player of the week for Jan 24th. Kayla helped Stanford destroy a ranked UCLA team and a good USC team. She averaged 17 points and 7.5 rebounds in those two games, and it was good to see the old Kayla back after a mini-scoring slump.
Noteworthy is her shot at breaking two Stanford records. She needs just eight minutes of playing time to beat Virginia Sourlis' (1982-86) 25-year old Stanford record of 4,148 minutes played. Harder yet, she is 141 rebounds away from Jayne Appel’s record of 1,263 career rebounds. Totally doable.
Oh, good news, the Stanford-Oregon game on Thursday is slated to be televised live on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area at 7 PM. Yay! C and R can hold off paying the $14.95 to the internet All Access site one more week!
