Jump takes the lead in Stanford hoops win over Syracuse

Pinewood alum Hannah Jump and Mitty grad Haley Jones were on opposite sides of the court for two of the past three NorCal Open Division basketball championship games, each winning a NorCal title.

Put them on the same side and you get a double dose of ‘H.J.’ power. They were in fine form Friday as the third-ranked Stanford women’s basketball team moved into the championship game of the Greater Victoria Invitational in B.C., Canada with a 77-59 victory over Syracuse.

Stanford (7-0) plays No. 10 Mississippi State in Saturday night’s 7:30 p.m. championship. Mississippi State (8-0) beat Green Bay 83-58 on Friday.

Jump and Jones, both freshmen, combined for 43 points on 55.7% percent shooting from the field, including a 9 of 15 (60%) effort from 3-point range.

Syracuse was 7 of 28 (25%) from 3-point range, slightly better than the 24.6% it shot overall.

Jump hit eight of 13 long-range shots, 4 of 7 in the first half and 4 of 6 in the second half, for all her points. Her success was in contrast to Stanford’s 4 of 23 effort in Thursday’s 83-78 win over California Baptist.

Nadia Fingall, who finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds, got the party started with an early basket. Syracuse took a 7-5 edge with 4:13 remaining in the first quarter and then Jump hit her first 3-pointer with 2:42 left to put Stanford ahead for good. Jones followed with a short jumper.

During the final three minutes of the second quarter, there was a sequence started by a Jump 3-pointer, then a steal by Jump that led to a fast break layup by Jones, followed by another Jump 3-pointer and ended with a Jones 3-pointer off an assist from Jump that gave Stanford a 35-18 advantage at halftime.

The run continued into the third quarter, as Stanford scored the first seven points for an 18-0 run. Jump hit a 3-pointer during the run.

Syracuse ultimately pared the lead to eight points near the end of the third quarter, the closest it came the rest of the way.
