STANFORD -- Senior forward Joslyn Tinkle turned her final appearance at Maples Pavilion into a lifelong memory Tuesday night in leading top-seeded Stanford into the Sweet 16 with a 73-40 demolition of Michigan. Tinkle made all five of her 3-point shots and ended with 21 points in an NCAA tournament second-round mismatch in front of a crowd of 4,717.
... As a result, Stanford extended its winning streak to 19 games, having last lost Jan. 13 to Cal. Stanford heads to Spokane for a regional semifinal game for the third time since 2008, when it began its run of five consecutive Final Four appearances. The Cardinal is gunning for a record sixth consecutive trip this year. If Tinkle and company can continue their play, Stanford might have a chance. Tinkle, a 6-foot-3 forward from Missoula, Mont., has had a breakout senior season, earning All-Pac-12 honors. Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer reminded Tinkle before the game that Candice Wiggins and Rosalyn Gold-Onwude had masterful games in their final appearances at Maples. "This is the tradition, if you're a senior, this is what we want from you," VanDerveer said.

Tinkle gave her a performance to remember.
