With the Cardinal currently projected to be somewhere between an 8 seed and a 10 seed in the NCAA tournament, it is crucial that Stanford does not give the tournament committee a reason to bump it out of the field of 68. Holding serve this week at home in the final games of the regular season against Colorado (20-9, 9-7) and Utah (19-9, 8-8) would pretty much guarantee the Cardinal a spot in the Big Dance.
Heading into Arizona for another road trip after two road wins last weekend, the No. 4 Stanford Cardinal (15-1, 4-0 Pac-12) boasts two players that are receiving lots of recognition for their prowess on the court. Senior forward Chiney Ogwumike was named Pac-12 Player of the Week for the sixth time this season, while junior guard Amber Orrange was named to the watch list for the Lieberman Award, awarded to the best point guard in the nation.
The Pac-12 released Stanford football’s full 2014 schedule on Wednesday afternoon, featuring nine conference matchups and six home games. As was the case in 2012, Stanford will have three consecutive home games to open the season before most of the student body arrives on campus for the new school year.
After a disappointing home loss to Cal last week in its conference opener, the Stanford men’s basketball team will hit the road this week to take on both Oregon schools in a crucial stretch for the team’s Pac-12 aspirations. A road sweep of Oregon State (8-6, 0-2 Pac-12) and No. 17 Oregon (13-2, 1-1) could do wonders to restore Stanford’s confidence early in the conference season.
Senior forward Chiney Ogwumike started the Pac-12 season with a bang in last weekend’s season opener and earned her fifth Pac-12 Player of the Week honor this season. In doing so, she became the Pac-12’s all-time leading rebounder and averaged 32 points and 13.5 rebounds per game in the Card’s dismantling of both Oregon and Oregon State.
With last week’s finalization of the College Football Playoff committee and all of the controversy and mudslinging that followed, it seems as if much of America has forgotten that we still have one year left in the ever pleasing Bowl Championship Series (BCS) era.
For the first time in his collegiate career, Kevin Hogan failed to deliver with the game on the line.
