Cardinal shear Golden Bears, advance to second round of Pac-12 tourney

In the previous battles against Cal this season, Stanford men’s basketball (18-14) had tough games against the last-place team in the conference.

But on Wednesday in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament, the fifth-seeded Cardinal took care of business against the twelfth-seeded Bears (8-24), defeating their Bay Area rivals 76-58 in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
