Women’s basketball uses weekend at home to jump to even record

Different players continue to step up big for the Cardinal, with sophomores Dijoinai Carrington and Alexa Romano having career nights versus UCR and CSUB respectively. The Cardinal donned turquoise uniforms to honor Native American Heritage month versus CSUB.

Women’s basketball preview: Newcomers

For a Stanford women’s basketball team that was propelled to the Final Four last season by strong senior leadership, it may be the young guns who help them return this year. The Cardinal’s freshman class— forwards Alyssa Jerome, Maya Dodson, Estella Moschkau, and guard Kianna Williams—are talented, versatile, and confident. And while all of the freshmen are yet to play a collegiate game, their teammates and coaches have been impressed by what has been displayed in practice.

Triple Threat

Imagine a franchise composed of a three-player core of scoring point guard Damian Lillard, combo guard Jerry West, and dominant power forward Draymond Green. The three seem wildly different in terms of personality and style, yet as it turns out, it’s the perfect symbiosis — at least for the Stanford women’s basketball team.
