SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Stanford guard Anna Wilson will stay at the university for a sixth season to help the Cardinal try to defend their national championship, while Alyssa Jerome is staying for a fifth year.

Wilson, a former Bellevue High School star and the Pac-12 Conference co-Defensive Player of the Year who moved into the starting lineup last season, and Jerome made their announcements together to The Associated Press before attending the Jazz-Warriors game.

It happened where Golden State planned to honor Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer and her team for the program's first NCAA title since 1992.
