On the Stanford Cardinal WBB podcast with Michael:

#1 The Stanford Cardinal WBB (24-3) are coming off a two game road sweep over the Arizona Wildcats (19-6) on Thursday and the Arizona State Sun Devils (7-16) on Sunday and both were convincing wins.

#2 The Cardinal occupied the #6 spot on the AP Poll but moved up to #3 after the last two road wins. They did at one time occupy #2 on the poll.

#3 South Carolina is #1 in the poll and has held that spot for 37 straight weeks tying UConn’s record for third place for the longest #1 spot held in the AP Poll list.

#4 The Cardinal have not lost often but have lost to USC and Washington in their last two defeats in Pac 12 play. That really speaks to the success of head coach Tara VanDerveer and the job she’s done with this team this season.

#5 Michael speaking of coach VanDerveer, she and the Cardinal get another run against the USC Trojans at Maple Pavilion this Friday night. The Cardinal badly want this game after losing to the Trojans in Los Angeles their last meeting.
