Cardinal fall to Cal behind cold three-point shooting on Senior Night

In the final game of the 2018-2019 regular season, Stanford men’s basketball (15-15, 8-10 Pac-12) took a hard fought loss to the Cal Golden Bears (8-22, 3-15) in Maples Pavilion, ending the year with a 1-1 split of the Bay Area rivalry in one of the strangest games of the season. The Cardinal missed 21 straight three-point shots and trailed by as many as 21 points before making four consecutive deep balls to cut the lead to three. Stanford fought impossibly hard down the stretch only to have the win elude them in the very guts of the game, as Berkeley won 64-59.
