Cardinal looks to snap Seattle winless streak

The Stanford men’s basketball team will attempt to accomplish something tonight it has never done under head coach Johnny Dawkins: defeat the Washington Huskies in Seattle. Even including a 79-67 home victory against the Huskies on Jan. 18, Stanford (15-7, 6-4 Pac-12) owns just a 2-9 record against Washington (13-11, 5-6) with Dawkins as head coach. The losing streak in Seattle spans four games, with the Cardinal’s last win coming back on Jan. 31, 2008, when Brook Lopez’s monster 31-point, 13-rebound performance powered Stanford to a 65-51 victory.

Stanford seeks consistency against confident Cal

Recent performances by the Stanford men’s basketball team have provided a basis for cautious optimism amongst Cardinal faithful and a possible winning blueprint moving forward. Was the near-miss performance against No. 1 Arizona a sign of good things to come? Does dispatching Arizona State, another hungry bubble team, mean the Cardinal has turned the corner? Is the stingy defense and physical rebounding sustainable?

Randle, Powell help Cardinal extinguish Sun Devils

With little room for error left on the schedule following Stanford’s near-miss loss to Arizona on Thursday, the Cardinal men’s basketball team’s two best players came up big when needed most, as the Cardinal defeated the Arizona State Sun Devils 76-70 on Saturday afternoon. After a slow start to the game that saw Stanford (14-7, 5-4 Pac-12) trail the Sun Devils (16-6, 5-4) by as much as 6 points, senior forward Dwight Powell and junior guard Chasson Randle dominated the second half to help Stanford come away with the victory.
