Not sure they were as wide open as we think

First fantastic defense by Stanford. Guarding the inbounds caused McDonald to lose momentum by screwing up timing.

When she got the ball they blitzed her perfectly. The blitz from the left there was no way to make that pass without making a high risk short range pass that would lead to just as bad as a shot with under a second left.

On the right there was an opportunity. They hedged the passing lane and the Zona player should have cut towards the basket for a tip shot.

Agreed didn't love the play call but so much of the problems were caused by fantastic defense by Stanford. A better secondary option would have been nice but with the time on the clock and the timing of the blitz really made that hard.
