Stanford tall task for A&M

Danielle Adams' talents were well-described Saturday by her Texas A&M teammates and coach Gary Blair.

Blair called the 6-foot-1 senior the most versatile player he's coached. Teammates Sydney Carter and Sydney Colson praised Adams' physical play, ability to rebound, pass, her unselfishness and scoring ability.

Adams averages 22.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

Though Adams insists she's not worried about her matchup with Stanford -- she said she's guarded talented players before -- it's unlikely she has experienced anything like the Cardinal's depth.

Stanford starts 6-foot-3 Chiney Ogwumike, 6-4 Kayla Pederson and 6-2 Nneka Ogwumike. It brings 6-5 Sarah Boothe, 6-3 Joslyn Tinkle and 6-3 Mikaela Ruef off the bench.

So though A&M may have an advantage at guard with Carter and Colson and their ability to apply defensive pressure, the Cardinal have the edge in the post.

And if A&M isn't able to contend on the boards, it could be tough to pull an upset.
