Highlights of Stanford vs UCLA 2004

When Stanford and UCLA met at Maples on January 22, 2004, Stanford won with ease, 67-52 (the Cardinal led 42-21 at half-time).

Stanford came into the game 14-0 and ranked #1 in the nation. UCLA was 9-4 coming in, with a 5-1 record in the Pac-10. This was Ben Howland's first year at UCLA and Monty's last year as the head coach at Stanford. In what was Josh Childress's first game in the starting lineup that season, he filled up the stat sheet: 14 pts on 5-10, 6 rebs, 3 assts, 2 blks, and 2 stls in 32 min. Offensively, Justin Davis was the big star with 21 points on 10-11 from the floor, and 5 rebs (all on the offensive end) in only 26 min.

"You can't slip against them at all, and we did often. They're like poison. They physically beat us up tonight. They beat us on the perimeter, on the glass, and on the break. Every way you can beat a team." - UCLA guard, Cedric Bozeman

"We were beaten today by a vastly superior team in every aspect of the game. They're a very disciplined team, a very unselfish team." - UCLA Head Coach, Ben Howland
