Stanford’s Cameron Brink grabs defensive torch

SPOKANE, Wash. – It was supposed to be a game of salvation.

And while Stanford did indeed take revenge by beating Texas 59-50 to hit a ticket to its second consecutive Final Four, the story became more about a passing of the defensive torch.

For the last few years, guard Anna Wilson has been Stanford’s defensive stop, a solid 5-foot-9 bundle of annoyance that prides itself on letting other players take, and usually miss, uncomfortable shots. She has built a reputation as a restraint defender who gives opponents and teammates nightmares.

“I mean, you do not want her to defend you,” Stanford guard Lexie Hull said before scoring a game-high 20 points on Sunday night. “I do not want her to defend me in practice. I don’t think anyone does that. “
