Archrivals brawl as Stanford stuns Cal at Haas

There are some games where records just don’t matter. Tournament seeding, March Madness implications, momentum swings—you name it, but none of it matters. These are rivalry games, and when the Stanford Cardinal rolls into Berkeley to take on the California Golden Bears, all bets are off.

Card with chance to sweep Cal

The Stanford men’s basketball team bounced back from a heartbreaking last-second loss to Colorado by trouncing the Utah Utes on Sunday night. The Cardinal dismantled the Utes at Maples Pavilion, winning by a final score of 84-66. However, it was too little too late for a Stanford team that, despite having high hopes of earning…

Cardinal misses its home court in Oregon

The Stanford Cardinal men’s basketball team (16-12, 7-8 Pac-12) delivered its most impressive performance of the season on Jan. 30th when it knocked off the Oregon Ducks (22-6, 11-4), ranked No. 10 in the nation at the time, in blowout fashion. When the Card traveled to Eugene to take on the Ducks for the second…

Big Dance hopes hang by a thread as Card travels to Oregon State, Oregon

After dropping a pair of close home games to UCLA and USC, the Stanford Cardinal men’s basketball team desperately needs to finish conference play on a high note. With March Madness just around the corner and the possibility of earning an at-large bid appearing increasingly unrealistic, Stanford must focus on picking up a couple of conference wins on the road this week in order to improve its seed for the Pac-12 tournament.

Stanford comeback falls short against USC

In a scene that was far too familiar for Stanford fans, a last-second shot didn’t drop for Chasson Randle and the Cardinal (15-10, 6-6 Pac-12) was once again upset by USC on Thursday night, 65-64, throwing its NCAA Tournament chances at least partially out the window.

M. Basketball: Stanford falls flat against Colorado, loses four out of its last six conference games

Coming off a big win over conference rival California, the Stanford men’s basketball team (11-8, 2-4 Pac-12) wanted to prove to the entire Pac-12 that they are a force to be reckoned with. A win against Colorado (13-6, 3-4 Pac-12), which came within a controversial buzzer-beating three-pointer of upsetting No. 6 Arizona, would have done just that. Shooting 31% from the floor, being outrebounded 48-30 and losing 75-54 was certainly not the way to get it done.

M. Basketball: End-game woes doom Card against Huskies

Trailing 62-60 to the favored Washington Huskies (11-5, 3-0 Pac-12) with just over a minute remaining, the Stanford Cardinal (10-7, 1-3) turned to its hottest hand, junior forward Dwight Powell. Powell made a move to the basket, and despite having a potential lane to the hoop, pulled up for a short jumper. Every Stanford fan…

Stanford welcomes Alcorn State to Maples Pavilion

While it is easy to overlook nonconference play, Stanford men’s basketball head coach Johnny Dawkins and his players understand that it is important to make a statement both in the Pac-12 and on a national level in the team’s first few games of the regular season. Coming off of a 2011-12 campaign that saw the…

M. Basketball: Stanford pulls away from Fullerton late in home opener

While the backcourt duo of Chasson Randle and Aaron Bright has received plenty of attention this offseason as keys to the future of Cardinal basketball, the rest of the Stanford team clearly wants to make sure that we don’t forget about them. Thanks to a balanced effort, the Cardinal pulled away from Cal State-Fullerton in the second half Monday night’s home opener to win 81-68.

M. Basketball: Cardinal captures second NIT, sends seniors off with rout of Minnesota

After finishing seventh in the Pac-12 during the regular season, Stanford found itself in the postseason for the first time since 2009, competing in the National Invitational Tournament (NIT). The Cardinal would end up cruising through the bracket and securing the second NIT title in school history, finishing a once-disappointing season with an impressive 26-11 record.

M. Basketball: Zimmermann’s career-high not enough as Cal eliminates Card from Pac-12 tournament

Andrew Zimmermann was not going to end his Stanford career quietly. The senior forward, who averaged less than four points and 13 minutes per game during the regular season, played the game of his life in Thursday night’s quarterfinals matchup against the California Golden Bears, but ultimately it wasn’t enough, as the Cardinal fell to the Bears 77-71 to end its rollercoaster season in a disappointing fashion.

M. Basketball: Cardinal seeks revenge against Cal second time around

When California rolls into town, everything that happened earlier in the season ceases to matter. Past matchups, current records, Pac-12 rankings and tournament positioning will be irrelevant. The two teams met up for the first time on Jan. 29 in Berkeley, where Stanford put up a disappointing road effort. Despite being down just three points with 8:36 remaining, the Card could not overcome the deficit, as Cal went on to beat Stanford by a final score of 69-59.
