On March 16, 2018, the University of Virginia (UVA) men’s basketball team suffered perhaps the most embarrassing defeat in the history of college sports. The overall number one-seeded Cavaliers, fresh off an ACC Championship, lost to the 16-seed University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Retrievers by a 74-54 margin. It was the first ever victory…
The NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four is set, and almost everybody’s bracket is busted.
There’s only one game left in the regular season for the Stanford basketball teams, when the men take on Berkeley this Thursday in Maples Pavilion. With postseason play kicking off, the nationally ranked No. 7 women have a spot in the NCAA tournament locked down, while the men head to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 tournament with a hope and a prayer. With the women kicking off play this weekend, and the men starting up next week, The Daily’s Daniel Martinez-Krams, Mark Lu, and King Jemison take a look at the Pac-12 chances of both teams, and the possible tournament MVPs from the coming weekends.
With the close of the regular season drawing near, Stanford men’s and women’s basketball looks to finish off the season on a high note. The women currently boast a four-game winning streak as they head up North this upcoming weekend to face Washington and Washington State in the final two games of the season. Meanwhile,…
As quickly as it began, the end of college basketball is nearly upon us, as the Stanford teams make the final turn into their final five (four for the women) games of the season and gear up for whatever tournaments they wind up in come March. The Stanford teams went a combined total of 4-0 against the Southern California teams this weekend, with the women rebounding from some rough patches and the men continuing to improve. But what does the future truly hold for both of these teams? The Daily’s King Jemison, Daniel Martinez-Krams and Asia Zhang pull out their crystal balls and weigh in on the men’s recent successes, the women’s performances against top national talent and the slim, slim chances for the men to make March Madness.
After taking on the Oregon teams this past weekend, Stanford men’s and women’s basketball move on to a slate of USC and UCLA, as the two squads attempt to maintain their positions in the Pac-12.
It’s been a disappointing season for Stanford football. Last week’s 48-17 win over Oregon State makes it look a little better, but the Cardinal are still just 6-4 on the year, with a 4-3 record in Pac-12 play. Those four regular season losses are the most since 2014, and with three games left to play, it could easily become the worst season for Stanford since 2008 in Jim Harbaugh’s second year. The Cardinal came into the season with high expectations which their 4-0 start only elevated, but since then, they have not managed to live up to those expectations.
Stanford football enters the Big Game this year with the same record as the Cal Golden Bears for the first time in what seems like forever. The playing field is level, and everything is on the line. The Cardinal have an eight game winning streak in progress, and look to make it nine. Cal has a strong defensive identity and a bowl game for the first time since 2015. Two teams enter, one team leaves. The Daily’s King Jemison, Andrew Tan, and Gregory Block share their thoughts on the aerial strength of the Stanford offense, the Big Game finale for Bryce Love, the meager Cal offensive attack, and how everything (and I mean everything)could go wrong.
