Hello and welcome to The Daily’s liveblog of the 2013 Men’s Pac-12 Tournament and the first round matchup between No. 8 seed Stanford and No. 9 seed Arizona State. Wisconsin. We’ll be updating this page with instant coverage and analysis. Please refresh this page for the most recent updates. All times are Pacific.
After coming up short in three out of four games over Thanksgiving break, the men’s basketball team desperately needed a win against the Seattle University Redhawks on Wednesday night. That’s exactly what they got, surviving a sloppy first half and coming on strong late to win going away, 68-57.
Chasson Randle, the Class of 2015’s lone men’s basketball recruit, has comfortably settled into his starting role on the Pac-12 stage. This past summer, the 6-foot-1 guard from Rock Island, Ill., received numerous accolades from opposing teams’ coaches on the squad’s trip to Spain, and he has been an integral part of the Cardinal’s 15-5 start.
