NO. 8 TEXAS WOMEN LOSE AT NO. 11 STANFORD 71-59

Stanford junior guard Brittany McPhee posted a career-high 28 points to lead all-scorers in the Cardinal's win over the Longhorns at Maples Pavilion in Palo Alto, Calif., Monday night.

Junior guard Brooke McCarty led the Longhorns across the board, registering a team-high 20 points and five rebounds on the night. Junior guard Ariel Atkins had 14 points, including 3-of-6 shooting from 3-point range, and a game-high four steals.

Even though UT out-rebounded the Cardinal, 38-32, and posted nine steals, Texas' 35.3 percent shooting (24-of-68) from the field was no match for Stanford's 54.9 shooting percentage (28-of-51). 

"They were the better team," said Texas coach Karen Aston, who logged her 300th career game as a head coach on Monday. "We haven't executed things in practice the way we need to. We went through a stretch where we fouled too much, and we went through a stretch where we weren't helping each other defensively. We will get home and get to work because that's all we can do."

Aston holds an all-time record of 190-110 (.635) in her 10th season at the helm of a collegiate program.

The Cardinal leads the all-times series over the Longhorns, 7-4, and picked up its first against Texas since the 2013-2014 season.

Texas led, 18-17, after the first period and held onto their lead until the 5:23 mark of the second period, when Stanford tied the game at 24-24. An 11-3 run to end the first half put Stanford up, 35-29, at halftime. The Longhorns never got closer than five points (40-35) the second half.

NEXT UP: Texas will host its first regular season game against the Houston Baptist Huskies inside the Erwin Center at 11 am CT on Wednesday, Nov. 16. The game will be carried live on Longhorn Network.
