While the reliance upon Samuelson’s shooting is still the same from last year’s game at Washington to this season. This year’s No. 15 Stanford women’s basketball team (10-4, 2-0 Pac-12), as compared to the style of play of the team that lost to Washington last year, is vastly different.
The Stanford men’s basketball team will attempt to accomplish something tonight it has never done under head coach Johnny Dawkins: defeat the Washington Huskies in Seattle.

The losing streak in Seattle spans four games, with the Cardinal’s last win coming back on Jan. 31, 2008, when Brook Lopez’s monster 31-point, 13-rebound performance powered Stanford to a 65-51 victory.
