Do or die for men’s basketball at Pac-12 Tournament

Stanford men’s basketball started the season by winning four games in a row, and it will have to repeat that win streak again in order to keep the season alive. The Cardinal travels to Las Vegas this week for the Pac-12 Tournament, where it will face Arizona State in the first round on Wednesday. To bring home the title and receive the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, Stanford needs to win four games in four days, with the championship game scheduled for Saturday night.

Bittersweet Senior Night for Gabriel Harris

Stanford basketball’s 2013 senior night turned into senior guard Gabriel Harris’s night. The Birmingham, Ala. product scored a career-high 14 points to help Stanford (17-3, 8-9 Pac-12) defeat Utah (11-17, 3-13) 84-66 in what was his final home game as a Cardinal player. Harris was 6-of-7 from the floor and had seven rebounds, two steals…

Shabazz Muhammad, UCLA too much for men’s basketball

UCLA rode into Maples Pavilion on Saturday afternoon with the Pac-12’s highest scoring offense, and Stanford’s defense was barely even a speed bump in the 88-80 loss. Freshman point guard Shabazz Muhammad, the conference’s third-leading scorer, finished with a game high 25 points on 9-of-14 shooting for the Bruins. The freshman standout made it clear…

Card can’t take the heat, falls to Arizona

For just over 35 minutes, Stanford was the best men’s basketball team in the Pac-12. But No.7 Arizona put the Cardinal in its place by closing out a 73-66 battle at a packed McKale Memorial Center—one of the toughest arenas to visit in college basketball—on Wednesday night.

M. Waterpolo: Stanford faces No. 7 Pacific on Senior Day

Stanford faces No. 7 Pacific on Senior Day Friday night with a lot at stake. A victory would secure the fourth seed in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament, but a loss would open up the door for the Tigers to jump them in the standings, and an even worse draw for the Cardinal in the conference playoffs.

M. Water Polo: Loss at UCLA drops Card to fourth in MPSF

No. 3 Stanford took a third conference loss this Friday, putting a damper on their late-season momentum and stifling their hopes for an NCAA Tournament birth. The Cardinal’s prolific scoring duo, freshman driver Bret Bonanni and sophomore utility Alex Bowen, were held to a goal a piece as Stanford fell 9-5 at UCLA in their second-to-last regular-season game.

M. Water Polo: Uphill battle to playoffs begins now

The loss dropped Stanford (8-4, 2-2 MPSF) to fourth place in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation and leaves them with an uphill battle to get to the NCAA tournament. They play two more MPSF teams this weekend, and while both opponents are winless in the conference, the Cardinal cannot afford another slipup.

M. WaterPolo: Cal knocks off Cardinal in Big Splash

The floodgates opened during the second quarter of this year’s annual Big Splash against California, and by the end of the game Stanford was drowning in goals. A 4-0 second quarter that turned into an 8-2 run for California led to a lopsided 14-8 drubbing on Saturday morning at Berkeley’s Spieker Aquatics Complex.

M. Water Polo: Stanford faces must-win road MPSF matches

No. 5 Stanford visits division rivals UC-Santa Barbara and Pepperdine this weekend in what is already a pivotal set of games only a week into the regular season. At 6-3 overall and 0-1 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF), a Cardinal loss to either team could be enough to end their postseason hopes unceremoniously and very early.

M. WoPo: Top-ranked Trojans make for rude visitors

Then, in what seemed like the blink of an eye, USC (15-0, 2-0 MPSF) ambushed the back of the Cardinal net and put the game out of reach with four third-quarter goals and a stalwart defensive display. The first of those goals came less than 30 seconds into the second half, and the Trojans followed it up with another before 60 seconds had ticked off the game clock.
