STANFORD, Calif. -- In what has become perhaps the biggest rivalry in women's college basketball, No. 8 Stanford upended top-ranked UConn 71-59 on Thursday to snap the Huskies' 90-game winning streak. ESPN.com's Mechelle Voepel interviewed two of Stanford's stars after the game.

The senior -- who had a career-high 31 points as well as nine rebounds and six assists -- said being aggressive from the get-go and being ready defensively helped the Cardinal, who also got a boost from a great home crowd at Maples Pavilion.

The All-American talks about the Cardinal's defensive effort and the play of her younger sister, Chiney, who was largely responsible for guarding UConn's Maya Moore before fouling out.
