In the series that will define its season, No. 3 Stanford (38-9, 19-5 Pac-12) hosts No. 11 Oregon State (34-15-1, 19-5 Pac-12) over the weekend. The Cardinal, the Beavers, and No. 1 UCLA (42-8-0, 19-5-0) are in a three-way tie atop the conference standings with just six Pac-12 games left.

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.
Stanford, Cal and a winning record are on the line — not all three will make it out of Maples on Senior Night Thursday, as the Cardinal (15-14, 8-9 Pac-12) look to rebound from Sunday’s rare, one-point home loss at the paws of the conference-leading Washington Huskies (23-6, 14-2 Pac-12).
