                  When No. 4 Stanford (24-4, 13-3 Pac-12) was not getting bullied inside the paint, turning the ball over or outrun, the game was close.

                  In a long, arduous conference season, consistency is rare, but improvement is even more difficult to come by.

                  The mark of a good team, at times, is winning when you are not at your best. Despite shooting 32.8% from the field as a team and turning over the ball as many times in the second quarter (five) as all of last game, No. 6 Stanford (19-2, 8-1 Pac-12) picked up the road win 58-41. ?

                  As Jump caught fire, so did No. 6 Stanford (18-2, 7-1 Pac-12), and the 16-0 across the end of the third and into the fourth effectively put the game out of reach. A season ago, a hot-shooting Utah (10-9, 3-5 Pac-12) defeated Stanford at home, but the Cardinal enacted their revenge with a 82-49 triumph.
