PULLMAN, Wash. -- Stanford needed only one hour and 14 minutes to demonstrate its dominance of the Pac-10 Conference volleyball to a young Washington State squad playing its first Pac-10 match of this season. The Cardinal defeated the Cougars 15-3, 15-9, and 15-4.

The Cougars were without starter Missy Blackshire, a sophomore outside hitter from Spokane, Wash., who was suspended for the Stanford match, for violating undisclosed team rules, coach Cindy Fredrick. Freshman Adrian Hankoff started in her place and led the Cougs with 12 kills in addition to 11 digs.

Stanford was led by the 1998 National Prep Player of the Year, Logan Tom, with 16 kills and eight blocks.

Stanford out-blocked WSU 11 to 3.

"You can't play Stanford and come from behind every game," Cougar coach Fredrick said. "They have so many people who can attack."

The Cougars, now 0-1 in league and 5-3 overall, play California Saturday night at Beasley Coliseum.
