On the Cardinal podcast with Jerry:

#1 Jerry how important was it that Stanford (19-9) was coming off two wins over the Washington schools and then facing a team they had trouble with the last time they met in the Utah Utes (15-3) and got the victory 70-62.

#2 Like your headline read last night the Cardinal led from wire to wire in this one and never looked back it looked like the Cardinal executed on defense to hold the Utes back just enough to get a eight point win.

#3 In the second half the Utes fought right back outscoring the Cardinal 40-36 and it was just a margin of error that could have cost the Cardinal in that second half

#4 Head coach Jerod Haase said the game was not a thing of beauty but the Cardinal hung on just enough to win it

#5 It doesn’t get any easier as the Cardinal host the Colorado Buffaloes (21-7) Sunday night at Maples Jerry tell us how you see this match up.

On the Cal Bears podcast with Morris:

#1 Not enough offense as you stated in the headline of your article that the Cal Bears (11-16) were stopped cold in their game in Seattle against the Washington Huskies (13-15)

#2 You always hope at least three people can shoot for double figures but Cal only had one player do that that was Matt Bradley who finished with 14

#3 For the Huskies they were draining shots all first half ending up with 43 points and sinking Cal to just only 26 points a clear indication of what was to come for the rest of the game

#4 The second half didn’t prove any more inspirational as Cal was spiraling again with only 26 points and the Huskies came up strong again with a 44 point second half.

#5 The Colorado Buffaloes (21-7) who have won three of their last five games but lost their last game which was at home are coming to Haas Pavilion Thursday night in Berkeley to face the Golden Bears could this be one of those games where Cal has a shot at bringing out some of those surprises

Stanford kept its hopes alive for a possible at-large bid for the NCAA tournament on Sunday with a 75-57 verdict over Washington State in Pac-12 men’s basketball at Pullman, Wash.

It was the Cardinal’s second straight win after losing seven of eight games over the last month going into the weekend. Stanford beat Washington 72-64 on Thursday.

Stanford has won eight consecutive games against WSU, and completed their second sweep of the Washington-based schools in three years.

Oscar da Silva and Daejon Davis scored 19 and 17 points, respectively, to lead the Cardinal (18-9 overall, 7-7 Pac-12). Da Silva was 6 of 10 from the field and pulled down 10 rebounds, giving him his sixth double-double of the season. Davis shot 6 of 12 from the field.

Washington State (14-14, 5-10) lost its fourth game in a row. CJ Elleby led the Cougars with 22 points and 10 rebounds. WSU has been without starting point guard Isaac Bonton in the last three games due to injury, and the offense has suffered – the Cougars have not taken a lead in the last two games.

The Cardinal led by as many as 14 points in the first half, eventually going on a 15-1 run to take a 31-19 lead at 3:10 of the half. WSU reeled off a 10-3 run – which started and ended with a 3-pointer by Elleby – to pull within 36-29 at the break.

Stanford opened the second half with a 9-1 run, building a 45-33 lead. The Cougars responded with an 8-0 run, and after Stanford went 5 ½ minutes without a field goal, WSU cut the Cardinal lead to 47-43 at 11:30 of the second half.

The Cardinal began pulling away, then went on a 10-0 run with 5:27 remaining to build a 65-48 lead.

The Cardinal return home this week for key games against Utah on Wednesday and Colorado on Sunday.

Stanford snapped out of a four-game losing streak on Thursday at Hec Ed Arena in Seattle, as the Cardinal knocked off Washington 72-64, earning a badly needed win in Pac-12 men’s basketball.

Stanford has lost seven of eight games over the last month.

Oscar da Silva led the Cardinal with 16 points and nine rebounds. Tyrell Terry was next with 14 points and four assists, and Spencer Jones added 12 points.

Washington (12-15 overall, 2-12 Pac-12) had four players reach double-figure scoring — Isaiah Stewart with 14 points and three assists, Marcus Tsohonis with 11 points, and RaeQuon Battle and Nahziah Carter with 10 points each. Carter grabbed nine rebounds and Jamal Bey had eight boards.

Defensively, Stanford (17-9 overall, 6-7 Pac-12) held the Huskies to 35.5 percent shooting (22 of 62, 4 of 24 3-point), and forced 12 turnovers.

The Cardinal shot 47.3 percent from the field (26 of 55, 7 of 18 3-point), and made 13 of 19 free throws.

After taking a 37-35 halftime lead using an 8-4 run, Washington took a lead early in the second half on a four-point play by Battle, but the Cardinal forced UW to miss 16 of its next 17 shots. Stanford held the Huskies to eight field goals — scoreless for nearly 14 minutes — in the second half.

The needed win should improve Stanford’s postseason resume. After traveling to Washington State on Sunday, the Cardinal return home for key games against Utah and Colorado.

Cal Bears podcast with Michael Duca:

#1 The Bears who are at the bottom of NCAA basketball team in offense didn’t look like a team that’s struggling as they got a road win in Pullman defeating Washington State 66-57.

#2 Paris Austin, Andre Kelly and Matt Bradley combined for 46 points for Cal that contribution helped accelerate the offense and Austin, Kelly and Bradley had some great opportunities to take some great shots.

#3 The win marks the first time they’ve won on the road this season what do the Bears need to do to win games on the road?

#4 Cal head coach Mark Fox said, “For this team, no one gave them a chance to have much success so any time that they have some I want them to enjoy it and understand how they found that success so they can build on it,”

#5 Fox said this was a win that he hopes will create some momentum going into Seattle this Saturday at Washington

Arizona, behind a 21-point, 11-rebound game from freshman center Zeke Nnaji, held off a second-half surge by Stanford and defeated the Cardinal 69-60 Saturday in Pac-12 men’s basketball at Maples Pavilion.

This was another tough loss for the Cardinal, who have been in a tailspin over the last few weeks, losing seven of their last eight games. It’s also the Wildcats’ 20th consecutive win over Stanford, a streak that goes back to 2008-09.

Josh Green contributed 15 points and six rebounds, and Dylan Smith added 11 points (2 of 7 3-pointers) and six boards for the visiting Wildcats (18-7 overall,8-4 Pac-12), who outrebounded Stanford 39-25 and picked up 10 points off 13 offensive boards.

Arizona, which moved into a three-way tie for first place in the conference, got only five points and two assists from point guard Nico Mannion, who played 24 minutes because of foul trouble. The Wildcats shot 37 percent overall, including 3 of 21 behind the arc. Arizona did hit 26 of 31 at the free throw line.

Bryce Willis led the Cardinal with a game-high 25 points, and Oscar da Silva added 15 points. Both Willis and da Silva grabbed five rebounds for Stanford (16-9 overall,5-7). It was da Silva’s first game back after suffering a head injury against Colorado on Feb. 8.

Arizona led 30-23 at halftime before the Cardinal cut their deficit to 46-42 with 10:28 left in the second half on a Wills layup. The Wildcats built a 59-50 lead with 5:30 to play on a Smith 3-pointer.

The Cardinal travel to Washington on Thursday.

Stanford’s late rally falls short lose to Arizona State 74-69

By Jerry Feitelberg

PALO ALTO–The Stanford Cardinal met the Arizona State Sun Devils Thursday night at Maples Pavilion. The visiting Sun Devils came to Stanford with a record of 15-8 overall, and 6-4 in the Conference. ASU is the only Pac-12 team to make the NCAAs the last two seasons. ASU has won five of the last six games. The Cardinal, on the other hand, has lost five of the last six and their record coming into the game was 16-7.

ASU led for most of the game. Stanford’s offense came to life late in the second half to close the gap to just three points. The Sun Devils held on to win 74-69.

The Cardinal’s best player, Oscar Da Silva, who suffered a head injury in the game against Colorado last Saturday, was not available. Stanford’s head coach Jerod Haase started sophomore Lukas Kisunas in his place. The Cardinal fell behind 7-0 in the early going.

Spencer Jones knocked down a couple of threes to make it 7-6. The Sun Devils, taking advantage of Stanford turnovers increased the lead to 20-13. James Keefe and Jaiden Delaire each made a bucket to make it 20-17. It was at this point that ASU went on an 11-0 run. The Cardinal fought back as Daejon Davis, Delaire, and Tyrell Terry made plays to cut the deficit to seven 36-29 at the end of the first half of play.

In the second half, ASU was able to keep the Cardinal at bay for most of the period. The Cardinal made an 8-1 run to come within four 50-46. The Cardinal’s point guard Tyrell Terry started to get his game coming as he led the charge. ASU didn’t cave.

ASU’s Remy Martin, and I am not making his name up, made two key baskets to give ASU an eleven-point lead 68-57.  The Cardinal’s James Keefe and Tyrell Terry led the team on another run to close the gap to three 68-65 with 2:07 left to play.

It appeared the referees missed a call when Terry was bumped and the ball went out of bounds. The Cardinal had another opportunity to get closer but they turned the ball over to ASU when the inbound pass was knocked out of bounds.

Remy Martin followed with a bucket to make it 70-65 with about 40 seconds left in the game. James Keefe scored for Stanford and was fouled on the play. Keefe missed the free throw. Rob Edwards made two free throws, and Martin made another two-point shot to put ASU ahead 74-67. Tyrell Terry scored the last basket for Stanford. Time ran out, and the Cardinal dropped its sixth game in the previous seven 74-69.

Game Notes and Stats- With the loss, Stanford’s record drops to 16-8 overall and 5-6 in the Pac-12. Arizona improves to 16-8 overall, and 7-4 in the conference.

Tyrell Terry led the Cardinal with 24 points. Jaiden Delaire had 11, Spencer Jones nine, James Keefe, nine, and Bryce Wills eight. Stanford shot 52% from the floor. They made six threes in 21 tries.

ASU was led by Remy Martin’s 24 points. Alonzo Verge had 19, and Kimani Lawrence kicked in with 11. The Sun Devils shot 55% from the floor. They connected on five threes. They out rebounded the Cardinal 30-21. Each team committed 20 turnovers.

The Cardinal plays the University of Arizona on Saturday at Maples Arena. The Wildcats played the Cal Bears Thursday night. The Sun Devils play the Bears on Saturday.
