Collins brothers were 1-2 punch

        ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Casey Jacobsen led Stanford in scoring with 27 points Thursday night. But after the Cardinal's 78-65 victory that knocked the University of Cincinnati out of the NCAA Tournament, a few of the Bearcats kept talking about the Collins brothers.

        Jason and Jarron Collins, Stanford's 7-foot junior center and 6-11 senior power forward, combined for 29 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocked shots, two steals and just one turnover.

        They were just too big and too strong for UC to match up with, especially with some of the Bearcat big men in foul trouble.

        “They play so well together,” UC sophomore guard Kenny Satterfield said. “It's very hard to stop two big boys like that who are interchangable. I think they're more impressive up close. I have never seen two people play that well together besides (San Antonio Spurs) Tim Duncan and David Robinson. You could tell they're brothers and they've been playing together their whole life.”

        Said UC coach Bob Huggins: “They're really skilled, they're just not very athletic.”

        Cincinnati centers Donald Little and B.J. Grove and power forward Jamaal Davis totaled 18 points and eight rebounds.

        The Collins twins were a combined 10-of-18 from the field and 9-of-14 from the foul line.

        “It's very hard to miss when you're shooting 2-footers,” Satterfield said.

        “We kind of ran out of people,” Huggins said. “We were afraid Donald would get in foul trouble and we'd have to play those other guys too much, and he did.”
