Stanford’s No. 20 beach volleyball team (10-14, 3-1 Pac-12) will play the final two games of the regular season at home this Saturday against No. 7 Cal Poly (19-9, 5-1) at 1PM PST and No. 11 California (17-7, 5-1) at 4PM PST. Stanford is coming off a much-needed 5-0 sweep over San Francisco on Saturday, during which no Cardinal duo dropped a single set. The victory was especially welcome considering Stanford had been limping away on a four game losing streak before that, most recent of which was a 0-5 defeat at the hands of No. 19 Saint Mary’s (17-6).

It was a mixed bag of a weekend for Stanford basketball. Despite a 2-1 record overall, the teams showed inconsistency against their rivals, the Berkeley Golden Bears. The men went to the last second against Cal, winning on a reversed call by the Pac-12 refs. This would ordinarily be cause to celebrate, except that they almost gave Cal their first win in the Pac-12 this year, and allowed them to break a nine game losing streak. The women went a step farther and dropped a game to unranked Cal on the road, causing their ranking to fall out of the NCAA’s top ten. As the schedules reach a particularly difficult curve for both teams, it’s time for both groups to tighten the screws and clean up their gameplay. The Daily’s Daniel Martinez-Krams and Stephen Ren share their thoughts on the Oregon teams visiting the Farm, the men’s big men woes, and the women’s recent shift out of utter dominance.
