Men’s basketball looks for best start in three years

The men’s basketball team (3-0, 0-0 Pac-12) takes on Santa Clara (3-0, 0-0 WCC) in a battle of two undefeated programs at Maples on Saturday. 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.

Softball takes on second consecutive top-five Pac-12 opponent

Tonight softball (32-15, 8-10 Pac-12) begins their final regular season series at No. 2 Washington (42-7, 17-4 Pac-12) in yet another difficult conference rivalry matchup. This is the Cardinal’s second week in a row playing against the second ranked team in the nation, as last weekend, UCLA (45-3, 19-2 Pac-12) held that ranking.

Softball upsets UCLA for second consecutive year before falling in next games

It was a bittersweet weekend for the Cardinal softball team (32-15, 8-10 Pac-12) in their last home series of the season. Stanford upset No. 2 UCLA (45-3, 19-2 Pac-12) on Friday but then fell to the Bruins on Saturday and Sunday. While losing the series may have been disappointing, few in the nation were expecting the Cardinal to win any of the three games. Friday night’s victory could prove important for postseason seedings.

Softball looks to snap nine-game losing streak to Sun Devils

This weekend, the softball team (31-10, 7-5 Pac-12) hosts Arizona State (25-17, 5-10 Pac-12) in a three-day series that could launch Stanford into the elite echelon of the conference. In the Pac-12, it appears there are three tiers of teams shaping up: the power houses: Arizona, UCLA and Washington, the mediocre teams: California, Oregon State,…

Softball bounces back in error free win

In a tight game decided by defensive play and errors, the Stanford softball team (31-10, 7-5 Pac-12) eked out a 3-2 win over Fresno State (30-15, 8-7 Mountain West). The game was scoreless through the first four innings, a testament to the strong pitching of sophomore Maddy Dwyer and senior Carolyn Lee, who only allowed…

Basketball round table: Asking the tough questions

Stanford women’s basketball is having its best season in years, only dropping two games and dominating opponents at all levels of the game. Stanford men’s basketball has been far more up and down, but still has a .500 record on the year, and continues to show promise on the floor. But both teams still have large questions looming over their seasons, questions that will need to be answered before the year is over. The Daily’s Sally Egan, Bobby Pragada, and Andrew Tan take a stab at answering some of those questions, weighing in on the men’s chemistry with and without KZ Okpala, the women’s quickly vanishing bench depth, and the way each of the Cardinal seasons seem to be playing out.
