CardinalSportsReport  –  Preview: Stanford MBB to square off with Oregon on The Farm


On Thursday at 8:00 PM PT on ESPN2, Stanford men’s basketball will welcome the Oregon Ducks to The Farm. Stanford comes in at 12-13 overall and 7-8 in the Pac-12 while Oregon comes in at 17-8 overall and 9-5 in the Pac-12.

Last time out: On Saturday, Stanford fell to Washington State by a final score of 72-59 in Pullman. Stanford led with around 10 minutes left, but then faded away.

On Oregon: The Ducks are having a solid season, hoping to get in position for an NCAA tournament berth. They have a bit of work to do, but they’re still in the mix. They’ve been really strong at home, going 11-2 while struggling away from Eugene with a 6-6 record in road/neutral site games combined. Most recently, they defeated Oregon State on the road by a final score of 60-58.

The Ducks have gotten a big boon from the return of senior big man N’Faly Dante, who is averaging 15.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. Senior guard Jermaine Couisnard (14.8 points & 4.5 rebounds) and freshman guard Jackson Shelstad (12.1 points) are also scoring in double figures, doing a nice job of taking the pressure off Dante.

As a team, the Ducks average 76.3 points per game on 45.6% shooting from the field, 35.6% shooting from 3-point range, and 70.5% shooting from the foul line. They average 34.7 rebounds, 14.0 assists, 7.2 steals, 3.6 blocks, and 10.6 turnovers per game. They also average a +1.0 rebound margin and a +2.0 turnover margin per game. Their opponents average 71.9 points per game on 45.1% shooting from the field, 34.0% shooting from 3-point range, and 71.8% shooting from the foul line.

Keys to the game: For Stanford, the first thing they need to do is contain Dante. He’s one of the best big men in the league and is very physical inside. This is a game where Stanford big man Maxime Raynaud needs to play big inside, get rebounds, and not get pushed around. A good dose of James Keefe would be nice for Stanford as he’s the most physical post player on the team.

The second thing Stanford needs to do is avoid offensive lulls. What often does Stanford in is having a scoring drought of 4+ minutes. If Stanford can avoid those and stay in a good offensive flow all night, that will help them a ton. In short, this just means they need to make sure they get a bucket when they really need to get a bucket.

Finally, Stanford needs to do make sure they defend the perimeter. Teams too often are able to make threes on Stanford in key moments. They need to make sure they defend the perimeter well and don’t give away easy looks. If they play tight defense on the perimeter, they’ll have a good chance to win this game.

Prediction: This is a toss-up game. I could see this one going either way. I’ll give the edge to Stanford because they are at home and I also think they’ll be extra fired up since they lost their last two games. They’re really not going to want to drop this one. Stanford 80 Oregon 78 is how I see this one ending.

Women’s college basketball power rankings: Oregon State rises into top 10; Ohio State stays ahead of Iowa

Women’s college basketball power rankings: Oregon State rises into top 10; Ohio State stays ahead of Iowa


Kim O’Reilly, CBS Sports

Compared to the past two months, this was a relatively calm week in the CBS Sports women’s college basketball power rankings. The top six teams remain unchanged, with No. 1 South Carolina still on track for a second consecutive undefeated regular season.

Despite Iowa having the spotlight this past week with Caitlin Clark breaking the NCAA women’s basketball scoring record, Ohio State remains the Big Ten’s top team. The Buckeyes have won 12 consecutive conference games, the most since the 2006-07 season in which they won 13 in a row. Ohio State’s defense has been solid, as it’s held opponents to under 50 points three times this month.

But when it comes to competition, no conference is harder to predict than the Pac-12. Oregon State had won five straight ranked games before Sunday’s loss to USC, another team that seems to be peaking at the right time. Oregon State, USC and Colorado are tied for second in the Pac-12 standings. Stanford, our No. 3 team, is leading the conference with a 12-2 record. 

Meanwhile, UConn is dominating the Big East with a perfect 15-0 record. It was a big week for the program as head coach Geno Auriemma passed former Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski for No. 2 on all-time college basketball wins list. Stanford’s Tara VanDerveer is the current record holder.
