STANFORD, Calif. – Coming off a convincing win over Oregon State Thursday, Stanford looks to keep its momentum going Saturday as the Cardinal hosts Oregon Saturday at 2 p.m. PT. The Cardinal and Ducks meet in just the second Saturday day game for Stanford this season.

At 6-4 in the Pac-12, Stanford is tied with UCLA for fourth place in the standings. Right behind both schools is the Ducks at 5-4. The Cardinal's six conference wins match its win total from all of last season's league slate. Stanford opened conference play with a 5-1 mark for just the second time in the last 14 seasons. In January, the Cardinal won five consecutive conference games for the first time in 10 seasons and posted its first conference road sweep in eight seasons. Stanford is looking for its first home sweep of the Oregon schools in five seasons.  

Saturday marks the 145th meeting between Stanford and Oregon. The Cardinal leads the series, 92-52. The Ducks have won four of the last five contests overall. The last three games between the two teams at Maples Pavilion have been decided by a total of nine points. Last season, Stanford nearly upset No. 6 Oregon, dropping 75-73 decision in a game decided in the final 14 seconds. Prior to this season's win over No. 16 Arizona State, Stanford's previous win over a nationally-ranked opponent at Maples Pavilion came against No. 11 Oregon (76-72) in 2016.
Six active Stanford players have played against Oregon. Senior Dorian Pickens is averaging 10.5 ppg in four contests against the Ducks.  With Reid Travis missing the 2015-16 season and one of the two meetings with Oregon last season, the fourth-year junior has faced the Ducks just twice in his Cardinal career, averaging 16.0 ppg and 8.0 rpg in those contests.

Stanford and No. 6 Oregon played down to the wire with the Ducks escaping with a 75-73 win at Maples Pavilion. A dramatic tip-in by Oregon's Jordan Bell with 14 seconds remaining proved to be the difference. Tyler Dorsey scored 15 points to lead Oregon. Reid Travis scored 27 points to go with 14 rebounds. Dorian Pickens added 18 points on 6-8 shooting from three-point range.

Reid Travis scored 21 of his 24 points in the first half and grabbed six of his nine rebounds in the second, helping Stanford earn an 80-71, wire-to-wire win over Oregon State Thursday at Maples Pavilion. It was Stanford's 22nd win in its last 24 home games against the Beavers. Dorian Pickens added 15 and Daejon Davis added 12 points and seven assists. Travis scored nine points in the first three minutes and Stanford scored the first 12 points of the game. He made 10 of his first 12 shots.

Since returning from injury 10 games ago at the beginning of Pac-12 play, Dorian Pickens leads the team in three pointers (29) and is second on the team in scoring during conference games (15.5). He ranks 13th in the Pac-12 in scoring during conference action and is third in the league in three pointers per game (2.9). The senior matched his career-high with seven threes (7-for-10) in the win at Washington State. Pickens owns 159 career three pointers, which ranks 12th in school history. With 999 career points, the senior is about to become Stanford's 46th member of the 1,000-point club.

Junior Reid Travis, a preseason All-American and candidate for several national player of the year awards, is third in the Pac-12 in scoring at 19.6 ppg. The forward ranks in the top-five in the Pac-12 in nine categories overall. He matched his career-high with 29 points in wins over USC and San Francisco this season. The junior became the 45th member of Stanford's 1,000-point club earlier this year and enters the Oregon game with 1,196 points and 629 rebounds in his 86-game career so far. He ranks ninth in the Pac-12 in rebounding (7.7 rpg).

Reid Travis, Dorian Pickens and Michael Humphrey were each voted captains this season. The three take on 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 Cardinal's three captains account for 60.3 percent of Stanford's scoring average (45.4 out of 75.3 ppg) and 51.2 percent (19.4 out of 37.9 rpg) of the Cardinal's rebounding average.   

Reid Travis and Michael Humphrey have helped Stanford win the rebounding battle in 18 of 23 games this year, including 14 of the last 16 contests. The Cardinal is third in the conference in rebounding at 37.9 rpg. Last week, USC's Chimezie Metu (12 pts, 10 rebs.) became the first Cardinal opponent to record a double-double since Cal's Ivan Rabb on Feb. 17 of last season.  

Freshman Daejon Davis has started all 21 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 nine games, Davis is averaging 13.1 points and 5.7 assists per game in guiding Stanford to a 6-3 record in that stretch.
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.

Stanford's starting post players, Reid Travis and Michael Humphrey, have combined to average 30.7 points and 15.6 rebounds per game. The duo is third in the conference among starting post players in combined scoring and second in combined rebounding. Stanford and Arizona represent the only starting post duo to rank in the top-three in both categories. Travis is third in the Pac-12 in scoring at 19.6 ppg and is sixth in rebounding at 7.7 rpg. Humphrey is fifth in the conference in rebounding at 7.9 rpg.

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 21 of Stanford's 23 contests. At least one freshman has started in all 23 games.
All four average more than 21 minutes per game. Davis leads the Cardinal in assists (4.7 apg), White leads the Cardinal in three pointers (34) and da Silva leads the Cardinal in blocks (22). KZ Okpala, who made his collegiate debut 11 games ago, is averaging 9.0 ppg in 28.1 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. 
Prior to this season, Stanford last started three freshmen on January 27, 1983 (at Washington) with Keith Ramee, Andy Fischer and Earl Koberlein earned the starting nod in that contest.

Michael Humphrey, who was among the Pac-12 leaders in rebounding last season, ranks fifth in the Pac-12 in rebounding with an average of 7.9 rpg. The forward ranks fourth in the conference in defensive rebounds per game (6.1 drpg). He posted a career-high 18 rebounds against Pacific on Nov. 12. The senior, who is averaging 11.1 ppg, has four double-doubles this year.

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.
