Men’s tennis travels north, women to take on Cal

After fighting to a 4-3 victory over rival Cal on Saturday, No. 12 Stanford men’s tennis (14-5, 3-3 Pac-12) travels north this weekend to take on the Oregon Ducks (13-7, 1-5) on Friday before ending their tour of the Pacific Northwest against the Washington Huskies (6-15, 1-5) in Seattle on Sunday. The two matches will bring the regular season to a close for the Cardinal before the Pac-12 Championships begin on April 24 in Ojai, California.

Basketball round table: Time for the tournaments

There’s only one game left in the regular season for the Stanford basketball teams, when the men take on Berkeley this Thursday in Maples Pavilion. With postseason play kicking off, the nationally ranked No. 7 women have a spot in the NCAA tournament locked down, while the men head to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 tournament with a hope and a prayer. With the women kicking off play this weekend, and the men starting up next week, The Daily’s Daniel Martinez-Krams, Mark Lu, and King Jemison take a look at the Pac-12 chances of both teams, and the possible tournament MVPs from the coming weekends.

Women’s basketball suffers up and down weekend against Oregon schools

In a weekend of highs and lows, the Stanford women’s basketball team (19-4, 9-3 Pac-12) dominated the No. 7 ranked Oregon State Beavers (20-4, 10-2) in an upset victory on Friday night before being dissected by the No. 3 Oregon Ducks (23-1, 12-0) on Sunday. The Cardinal walked all over the Beavers, winning 61-44, but were obliterated by the Ducks, falling 84-44. This loss marked the first time the team has been beaten by 40 points since 1985.

Stanford volleyball rolls over Oregon opponents

On August 31st, Stanford women’s volleyball travelled to Utah and played against Brigham Young University in a match that went five sets, and eventually ended with Stanford falling just short in the fifth.

Fast forward two months, and now the No. 2 ranked Cardinal (18-1, 10-0 Pac-12) haven’t lost a single game since that day in August. 16 straight wins and a perfect conference record later, they sit at the top of the Pac-12, and the country, with a seemingly unbeatable roster. But they still aren’t number one. That spot belongs to the BYU Cougars, who are the only remaining undefeated team in the nation. Stanford now has their eyes set on just one goal: getting revenge on BYU in Minneapolis this December at the NCAA Final Four, and claiming their second national championship in three years.
