STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Alanna Smith had already left for her flight across the world to join Stanford's basketball team, so she never saw her mother's tears as the freshman departed Australia by herself.

Smith unintentionally made history the moment she stepped on campus.

Amazingly, she is the first international recruit ever for the Cardinal women's program, even after all of those talented squads in recent decades playing for Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer.
