Media picks Stanford women No. 1

Following the coaches' prognostication, the media has picked Stanford to win its eighth straight Pac-10 Conference women's basketball championship.

The Cardinal, led by second-team All-American Candice Wiggings and 2007 Pac-10 Freshman of the Year Jayne Appel, return the core of the team that went 29-5, including 17-1 in the Pac-10, and made its 20th straight NCAA Tournament appearance.

Stanford received 17 of the 18 first-place votes. The other vote went to Arizona State, which finished second in the preseason media poll.

Cal, led by reigning Pac-10 Player of the Year Devanei Hampton and Coach of the Year Joanne Boyle, is picked third.

Southern Cal and Washington round out the top five, followed by UCLA, Oregon, Arizona, Oregon State and Washington State.
