Men’s basketball drops one, wins one on Washington road trip

In their quest for a set of conference wins on the road, the Cardinal set out this past weekend to the Pacific Northwest for their first pair of showdowns against the Washington schools. After a disappointing performance against the Washington Huskies (14-4, 5-0) on Thursday, Stanford men’s basketball (9-9, 2-4 Pac-12) rebounded against the Washington State Cougars (8-10, 1-4) on Saturday for their second Pac-12 victory.

Despite the layers of Stanford issued sweats, fancy backpacks, and motorized bikes, athletes on the Farm are, for the most part, no different from anyone else.

Men’s basketball roundtable: Comeback Cardinal

The Cardinal are coming off two bigs wins against UCLA and USC.

Men’s basketball roundtable: Can the Cardinal turn around slow start?

Stanford, right now, has no shot at beating UNC. The Cardinal just lost to an Eastern Washington team that hadn’t beaten a Pac-12 school in 15 years. They cannot break the zone defenses that every team has trotted out to counter their offense. Reid Travis and Robert Cartwright have played well but the perimeter offense and defense has been trouble once again for the Cardinal. Opposing guards are able to penetrate off the bounce and draw fouls or kick it to the open man for an open three point shot.
