As the Stanford men’s basketball team prepares for its last two games in Maples Pavilion this year, it finds itself in the all-too-familiar position of playing for little more than pride and a meager chance at a magical run.
M. Basketball: Stanford falls flat against Colorado, loses four out of its last six conference games
Coming off a big win over conference rival California, the Stanford men’s basketball team (11-8, 2-4 Pac-12) wanted to prove to the entire Pac-12 that they are a force to be reckoned with. A win against Colorado (13-6, 3-4 Pac-12), which came within a controversial buzzer-beating three-pointer of upsetting No. 6 Arizona, would have done just that. Shooting 31% from the floor, being outrebounded 48-30 and losing 75-54 was certainly not the way to get it done.
Fresh off a big win over Colorado State at Maples Pavilion earlier this week, the Stanford men’s basketball team is back on the hardwood tonight, heading just up the road to take on UC-Davis in a non-league game.

Despite one of its sloppiest performances of the season, the Stanford men’s basketball team ended its home season with a 77-66 win over Seattle University Tuesday night at Maples Pavilion.
