What you need to know about Stanford 

Stanford is coming off a strong campaign after going 20-12 with a 9-9 mark in the Pac-12 during the 2019-20 season. It could have been much better had the Cardinal played well down the stretch. Stanford started the year 15-2, but went 5-10 after that. The season ended with a 63-51 loss to California in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament. 

Jerod Haase’s squad will look to make a push for the NCAA Tournament this year. Leading scorer Oscar da Silva returns after averaging almost 16 points per game last year. And look for Stanford to again lean on its defense, which gave up just 62.5 points per contest last year.
