On December 29th, the men’s basketball team (11-1, 0-0 Pac-12) will take on No. 5 Kansas (9-2, Big 12) in its biggest matchup of the year. Stanford is off to its best start since 2008.

If the Cardinal win this one, it will mark their best start since 2016, boding well for a season which started with low expectations. This is the fourth of six home games for the Cardinal in a 16-day period.

Men’s swimming and diving begins new era

This weekend, the No. 10 men’s swimming and diving (0-0, 0-0 Pac-12) team will compete in their first meet of the season at the University of Pacific Invite in Stockton, CA. While there is a lot to like about this Cardinal team, the biggest topic of discussion is how the team will deal with the retirement of former head coach Ted Knapp and the graduation of key members like Abrahm DeVine and Brad Zdroik. This meet provides a first glance as to which swimmers will step up this season and how the team performs under new head coach Dan Schemmel.

Softball season ends with hope for future

Stanford softball’s spectacular season came to an end on Saturday when Boise State (36-16, 12-12 Mountain West) defeated the Cardinal (33-20, 8-13 Pac-12) for the second time in the weekend and sent Stanford home. Boise State subsequently were eliminated yesterday by No. 5 Florida (47-15, 12-12 SEC), who will advance to the super regional round.

Stanford qualifies for postseason play despite disappointing weekend

This weekend was a predictably tough one for the softball team (32-18, 8-13 Pac-12) as they were swept on the road against the No. 2 University of Washington (45-7, 20-4 Pac-12). The light at the end of the tunnel, however, was Sunday's NCAA softball tournament announcement that Stanford had qualified for postseason play. If the Cardinal are going to advance to the Super Regionals, though, they will have to play better than they did this weekend.
