Spurred once again by senior Kaylee Johnson, Stanford women’s basketball (11-7, 5-1 Pac-12) handled Washington (6-11, 0-6) 71-45 this Sunday in Maples Pavilion to complete a weekend sweep.
No. 18 Stanford women’s basketball (6-6) closed out its non-conference play last week with three games at home. The Cardinal started off by routing UNLV (5-6) 74-33 but was later upset by Western Illinois (10-3) 71-64 and dropped their last game against No. 7 Tennessee (12-0) 83-71 despite senior Brittany McPhee’s return from injury.
As the Cardinal head home for a five-game stretch in which they will open their conference schedule, Ellie Chen, Gregory Block, and Laura Anderson discuss the team’s season start.
Last season, Stanford women’s basketball’s three seniors, Erica McCall, Briana Roberson, and Karlie Samuelson averaged a combined 95.4 minutes per game — almost half of the 200 minutes per game for the whole team.
With the three starters graduating this year, the team will see new leaders emerge, and less familiar faces will be seen on the court more often. Coming back from injury, or playing the shadow of the three superstar seniors last year, here are the players that should see more action this season.
