Women’s basketball: 2018-19 season preview

The Stanford women’s basketball team begins pre-season training with momentum after a strong season under coach Tara VanDerveer. Last season, the Cardinal finished second in the Pac-12 tournament, losing to Oregon in the title game. In the NCAA tournament, the team defeated Gonzaga and Florida Gulf Coast, reached the Sweet Sixteen for the eleventh consecutive time, but ultimately lost to Louisville in the round of 16.

Senior Sit Down: Rachel Quon

In her four years on the Farm, the three-time All-Pac-12 honoree and 2010 All-American Rachel Quon and the Cardinal have gone a perfect 40-0 in first Pac-10 and then Pac-12 play. After two seasons that ended in defeat in the NCAA Championship match, Stanford broke through last season with a 1-0 victory over Duke to win the program’s first national title.
