Top-ranked men’s water polo picks up road wins behind 13 different goal scorers

No. 1 men’s water polo (13-1, 0-0 MPSF) cemented their top ranking with two more victories this weekend on a trip to Southern California. First, the Cardinal defeated No. 8 California State University, Long Beach (10-8, 0-0 GCC) on Saturday 11-5, then travelled to Orange County, where they beat No. 13 University of California, Irvine (16-7, 0-0 GCC).

Kavanaugh confirmed amidst Stanford affiliate’s assault allegations

The Senate confirmed Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Saturday afternoon, signalling the conclusion of what many have called the most contentious confirmation battle in recent memory — a battle that intensified last month after Stanford affiliate Dr. Christine Blasey accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulted her in the 1980s. Kavanaugh won the confirmation by a vote of 50-48, delivering a major victory to President Trump and securing a conservative majority in the Court.

After Stanford affiliate offers gripping testimony of assault, Supreme Court nominee remains unswerving in denial

In diametrically opposed but equally emotional testimony, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Bay Area-based and Stanford-affiliated research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford, faced off in a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The explosive hearing, in which senators questioned Ford and Kavanaugh for almost nine hours in total, will play an important role in the votes of key senators in the Senate-wide confirmation vote scheduled for Friday.

Men’s basketball hosts BYU in first round of NIT

Losing out on the NCAA Tournament can be a difficult fact to accept, but the ability to host NIT games is a decent consolation prize.

Third-seeded Stanford men’s basketball (18-15) will continue its season against sixth-seeded BYU (24-10) in the first round of the NIT.

The Cardinal needed to win the Pac-12 Tournament if it wanted a bid in March Madness, but it was eliminated by UCLA in the second round after Bruins guard Aaron Holiday scored 34 points to defeat Stanford 88-77.
