Cardinal fall to Cal behind cold three-point shooting on Senior Night

In the final game of the 2018-2019 regular season, Stanford men’s basketball (15-15, 8-10 Pac-12) took a hard fought loss to the Cal Golden Bears (8-22, 3-15) in Maples Pavilion, ending the year with a 1-1 split of the Bay Area rivalry in one of the strangest games of the season. The Cardinal missed 21 straight three-point shots and trailed by as many as 21 points before making four consecutive deep balls to cut the lead to three. Stanford fought impossibly hard down the stretch only to have the win elude them in the very guts of the game, as Berkeley won 64-59.

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.

Men’s basketball blasts past UCLA, breaking records and basketball hoops in the process

On a Saturday night rife with statistical anomalies, malfunctioning equipment and high percentage shooting, Stanford men’s basketball (14-11, 7-6 Pac-12) let the rest of the Pac-12 know the full extent of their potential as they blasted past the UCLA Bruins (13-13, 6-7), 104-80. Stanford’s 104 points made this game their highest scoring affair of the season, and the first time they had eclipsed 100 points since last year’s double overtime win against UCLA.
