Wiggins' big game fuels Stanford over MissouriNov 22, 2006 - 6:41 AM PALO ALTO, California (Ticker) -- Perhaps Missouri's players should take some shooting lessons from Candice Wiggins.
Wiggins scored 21 points as No. 11 Stanford put together an impressive first half en route to a 75-60 win against Missouri.
A junior guard, Wiggins made 8-of-16 shots from the floor and all four of her free throws to lead Stanford's 47 percent (29-of-61) shooting charge.

Missouri (3-1) finished at only 32 percent (20-of-61) for the contest and also committed 17 turnovers.
Kristen Newlin scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Brooke Smith also scored 14 for Stanford, which dominated on the glass, 43-32.
