Published on December 19, 2015


Stanford, Calif. – Cornell had no answers for No. 15 Stanford as the Cardinal defeated the Big Red, 93-38 Saturday afternoon at Maples Pavilion. Led by five players in double figures, Stanford dominated from the outset with a quick three-point shot from junior guard Lili Thompson and outscored their opponent 27-6 in the first quarter.

Cornell shot a dismal percent from the floor (3-of-15) to Stanford’s 52.9 percent in the first quarter. At the half, the Cardinal had a massive 40-point lead, 53-13.

All of Stanford’s 14 players were able to get minutes in the rout. Junior forward Erica McCall and freshman forward Alanna Smith scored 12 points each. McCall also pulled down seven rebounds. Thompson and junior guard Karlie Samuelson finished with 11 points each. Sophomore forward Kaylee Johnson had her first double-double of the season with 10 points, 11 rebounds along with three blocks. Senior guard Kiran Lakhian played a career-high 10 minutes and drained three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter.

Junior forwards Nia Marshall and Nicholle Aston led Cornell with eight points each. Marshall pulled down four rebounds while Aston finished with three. A vocal crowd was on hand for senior Maddie Campbell from Loomis, CA. She had five rebounds in the contest.

The Big Red continue their West Coast road trip with a game at Cal State Fullerton on Monday. Two of Cornell’s players are from Southern California: Aston and freshman guard Samantha Clement.

Stanford hosts Cal State Bakersfield on Tuesday. The head coach of the CSUB, Greg McCall is the father of Stanford’s McCall. It will be the first time she has faced her dad’s team since arriving at Stanford.


  • The Cardinal (8-2) put five players in double figures for the first time since a win at No. 7 Oregon State last February.
  • Cornell shot just 22.6 percent on the afternoon (14-of-62), the lowest for a Stanford opponent since Washington hit 16.9 percent on Feb. 28, 2013 (12-of-71).
  • The Cardinal entered the day 22nd in the nation in field goal percentage defense and lowered that mark 32.6 percent after its stout performance against Cornell.
  • The 55-point victory is tied for the 13th largest in program history.
