The weekend in sports
While many of us were savoring the final days of the holiday break, Stanford athletes were hard at work this weekend. Alas, the Cardinal football team lost to the Oklahoma Sooners in the Sun Bowl in El Paso New Year’s Eve. “Our guys fought as hard as they could,” Coach JIM HARBAUGH said during a post-game press conference. One thing’s for sure, the Cardinal’s 2009 season was the best the football team has had in a long time . . . Meanwhile, the women’s basketball team enjoyed a decisive victory over Cal Saturday with a score of 79-58. NNEMKADI OGWUMIKE racked up 24 points and a career-high 16 rebounds.
