STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford continues its road swing with its shortest trip of the year, as the Cardinal makes the 50-mile trek from Maples Pavilion to Haas Pavilion to face California in Berkeley Sunday night.

• Stanford and California meet for the 270th time. The Golden Bears hold a 149-120 edge.
• The Cardinal has won seven of its past 11 meetings with the Bears.
• Only twice in the last seven seasons has one team in the rivalry swept the season series, when Stanford achieved the feat in 2013 and 2015.
• Stanford has lost its last two games at Haas Pavilion by an average of 13.5 points.
• The Cardinal's last victory in Berkeley was a 69-59 win on Jan. 14, 2015.
• Michael Humphrey, Dorian Pickens and Robert Cartwright are the only three current members of the Cardinal to play in a Stanford win at Cal.

Stanford (7-6) enters the weekend tied in the loss column with Utah, Oregon and Washington for fourth place in the standings. Stanford's seven conference wins so far are one more than its win total from all of last season's league slate. The Cardinal opened Pac-12 play with a 5-1 mark for the second time in the last 14 seasons. In January, Stanford won five consecutive conference games for the first time in 10 seasons and posted its first conference road sweep in eight seasons. Stanford enters the weekend with two games remaining against teams in the top six and three contests left against teams in the bottom six of the conference standings. 

Reid Travis, Dorian Pickens and Michael Humphrey were each voted to the role of the Peter Sauer Captainship, honoring the legacy of the late Peter Sauer, a team captain and leader of Stanford's 1998 Final Four team. The three captains account for 59.6 percent of the scoring average (44.5 out of 74.7 ppg) and 50.0 percent (18.9 out of 37.8 rpg) of the rebounding average.
Ten active Stanford players have played against Cal. Junior Reid Travis is averaging 14.8 ppg in four games and senior Dorian Pickens is averaging 10.0 ppg in six games against the Bears.

Stanford stormed back in the second half to cut a 16-point deficit down to one, but could not catch Colorado in the end as the Buffaloes outlasted the Cardinal 64-56 Sunday in Boulder. Dorian Pickens scored 10 of his game-high 18 points in the second half, including a key three during a late Stanford run. Davis finished with 12 points and Travis added 10 points and six rebounds to round out the Cardinal in double figures in the contest.

Junior Reid Travis is one of just 12 players in Stanford history with at least 1,200 career points and 650 career rebounds. He enters Sunday's game at California with 1,239 points and 652 rebounds.

Senior Dorian Pickens, who missed 11 games with a foot injury, returned for the beginning of conference play. He ranks 10th in school history with 170 career three pointers. The forward has totaled 38 threes in the last 12 games. He leads the Pac-12 in threes per game (3.1) and is 10th in scoring (15.8 ppg) during conference play. Despite missing nearly half the season, Pickens leads the team with 42 threes. Earlier this season, Pickens became the 46th all-time and second active member of Stanford's 1,000-point club. He enters the California contest with 1,049 career points in 107 career games. 

Junior Reid Travis is fourth in the Pac-12 in scoring (19.0 ppg) and fifth in rebounding (7.7 rpg). Travis and Arizona's DeAndre Ayton are the lone players to rank in the top five of the conference in both scoring and rebounding. Travis ranks in the top-seven in the Pac-12 in 11 categories overall. The junior matched his career-high with 29 points in wins over USC and San Francisco this season. He became the 45th member of Stanford's 1,000-point club earlier this year and enters the California game with 1,239 points and 652 rebounds in his 89-game career so far.

Reid Travis and Michael Humphrey have helped Stanford win the rebounding battle in 20 of 26 games this year, including 16 of the last 19 contests. The Cardinal is third in the Pac-12 in rebounding at 37.8 rpg. Only one opponent (USC's Chimezie Metu, 12 pts, 10 rebs.) has recorded a double-double against Stanford in the last 31 games, dating back to last season.

Freshman Daejon Davis has started all 24 games he has played in. He averaged 15.0 points, 6.0 assists and 5.4 rebounds during Stanford's recent five-game winning streak. In his last 12 games, Davis is averaging 12.8 points and 5.5 assists per game.
Highlighting his play during conference action is the 50-foot heave to win the game at the buzzer against USC. The freshman registered career-highs in points (23) and assists (10) against UCLA on Jan 27. He has totaled 45 points and 17 assists in the two games against the Bruins this season. Davis has posted two double-doubles this season with 16 points and 10 rebounds in the win at Washington and the 23-point, 10-assist performance at UCLA.

One of the top recruiting classes in school history has played a big role in its first season on The Farm. Each of the Cardinal's four freshmen have started at least one game and three - Daejon Davis, Oscar da Silva and Isaac White - started together in six games. At least two freshmen have started in 24 games and at least one freshman has started in all 26 games.
All four average at least 20 minutes per game. Davis leads the Cardinal in assists (4.8 apg), White is second on the team in three pointers (38) and da Silva leads the Cardinal in blocks (25). KZ Okpala, who made his collegiate debut 14 games ago, is averaging 8.9 ppg in 27.0 mpg.
In the win over Arizona State, Stanford's final 16 points were scored by freshmen. In the victory at Washington State, Stanford's four freshmen scored the first 23 points of the second half during the Cardinal's 21-3 run to erase its deficit en route to the road win.

The Dec. 17 victory over San Francisco was head coach Jerod Haase's 100th career coaching victory. He is in his sixth season as a head coach and second with Stanford, following four successful seasons at UAB. The win was Haase's 20th at the helm of the Cardinal.  

Shoutout to Reid and Coach Haase for reaching major milestones today! #GoStanford

The four members of Stanford's fourth-year class - Reid Travis, Dorian Pickens, Michael Humphrey and Robert Cartwright - accounted for 62.6 percent of the team's scoring and 55.4 percent of the team's rebounding last season. Pickens and Humphrey are true seniors, while Travis and Cartwright have each had their medical hardship waivers granted and are redshirt juniors with another year of eligibility remaining after this season. Cartwright missed the entire 2015-16 season with a compound fracture of his right forearm sustained in preseason practice on Nov. 2, 2015. Travis was forced to miss the final 22 games of the 2015-16 season with a right leg injury.
Head coach Jerod Haase announced the establishment of the Peter Sauer Captainship in September, naming Reid Travis, Dorian Pickens and Michael Humphrey captains. The three wear patches on their uniforms honoring the legacy of the late Peter Sauer, a team captain and leader of Stanford's 1998 Final Four team. Stanford will celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the 1998 Final Four team Feb. 24, 2018, against Washington State.
