HOW WE GOT HERE »

  • Stanford's .875 winning percentage (28-4) is its best entering the NCAA Tournament since the program was 29-3 in 2014 (.906).
  • The Cardinal avenged an earlier loss to Oregon and won its 13th Pac-12 Tournament in 18 tries with a 64-57 victory over the Ducks in Las Vegas on March 10.
  • The Cardinal lost 88-48 to No. 3 Oregon in the teams' only regular-season meeting on Feb. 10, snapping the program's 22-game home winning streak and its 18-game Pac-12 home winning streak.
  • Stanford had won 29 in a row over the Ducks in Maples Pavilion. Oregon's only other win in the building came on March 5, 1987 (63-54).
  • The margin of defeat was the worst of Tara VanDerveer's career, larger than Idaho's 88-49 loss at Washington on Dec. 9, 1978, her third game as a collegiate head coach and first career loss. It was also the Stanford program's worst since a 42-point defeat at Long Beach State on Feb. 2, 1985 (98-56) and its second-biggest home loss, trailing only a 45-point rout at the hands of Long Beach State on March 10, 1983 (96-51).
  • In the Pac-12 Tournament championship, Stanford held Oregon to season-lows in points (57) and field goal percentage (.339) and to its third-worst effort on 3-pointers (.273). The Ducks came into the game second in the nation in scoring (87.0), third in shooting (.512) and first in 3-point shooting (.425).
  • The Cardinal, which finished second in the league standings, has not won a Pac-12 regular-season title since 2014, the first drought of more than two years in program history.
  • Stanford won 20+ games for the 18th straight season and 30th overall and had double-digit Pac-12 victories for the 32nd consecutive year.
  • Tara VanDerveer won her 900th game as head coach at Stanford on Jan. 20 against Washington State to become the fifth DI coach, women's or men's, with that many at a single school (Pat Summitt, Geno Auriemma, Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim).
  • The Cardinal is 25-0 this season when holding its opponent under 70 points and 23-0 when limiting them to less than 40.0 percent shooting.

 
SETTING THE STAGE »

  • Stanford is 12-7 all-time against UC Davis and undefeated (10-0) under head coach Tara VanDerveer. All seven of the Cardinal's losses in the series came in its early years, as the Aggies won seven of the first eight from 1974-1978. Since Davis' last win on Feb. 7, 1978, Stanford has won 11 straight.
  • The Cardinal opened this season with a 71-43 win over UC Davis in Maples Pavilion on Nov. 7.

  • The Aggies shot just 22.6 percent from the floor (14-of-62), the program's second-worst percentage since it made the transition to Division I in 2007-08. UC Davis' lowest field goal percentage in those last  12 seasons is the 18.2 percent it shot against the No. 1 Cardinal in an 87-38 loss on Nov. 30, 2012.
  • Saturday will be the second meeting between Stanford and UC Davis in the postseason. The Cardinal beat the Aggies in a first-round game in Maples Pavilion, 86-59, on March 19, 2011.
  • Nnemkadi Ogwumike scored 22 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead six Cardinal in double figures. Kayla Pedersen added 11 points and seven assists, Jeanette Pohlen had 11 points and eight assists as Stanford ran its winning streak at home to 62 games.
  • Current assistant coach Lindy La Rocque scored what was then a career high 14 points on 4-of-5 shooting from behind the arc in that win.
  • This is the first time in program history the Cardinal has been matched up in its tournament opener against a team it played during the regular season.

INJURY BUG »

  • Junior Nadia Fingall, who had started each of the Cardinal's first 12 games and averaged 8.0 points and 4.9 rebounds, will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the ACL in her left knee in a game against USC on Jan. 4.
  • Senior Marta Sniezek has yet to play this year after undergoing offseason ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) surgery on her right hand/thumb. She started 32 games last season.
  • Freshman Lexie Hull returned in Stanford's Jan. 6 win over UCLA after missing the previous nine games with a left foot injury. She had started the first three games of the year.

Those are three of the five lowest scoring offenses for a Tara VanDerveer team at Stanford, behind 1985-86 (66.6) and 1986-87 (67.8).
  • Stanford is 28th nationally in field goal percentage (.449), 30th in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.18) and 50th in fewest turnovers (419).

AUSTRALIAN ALL-AMERICA CANDIDATE »

  • Alanna Smith is on every major watch list, including the Naismith Trophy, Wade Trophy, John R. Wooden Award, Katrina McClain Award and Senior CLASS Award.
  • She received her first All-America honor of the season last Thursday when she was named to the espnW All-America second team.
  • A psychology major with a 3.47 cumulative GPA, two weeks ago Smith was named the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year and last week she became the program's 10th academic All-American when she was voted to the CoSIDA Academic All-American Division I second team.
  • Smith was named the Pac-12 Tournament Most Outstanding Player after posting double-doubles in each of the Cardinal's three wins and averaging 18.7 points and 12.3 rebounds.
  • A three-time Pac-12 Player of the Week this season (Dec. 17, Jan. 14, Feb. 18), the espnW and USBWA National Player of the Week from Dec. 17 and the Naismith Trophy National Player of the Week from Feb. 19, Smith is shooting 51.2 percent from the field, 39.5 percent from behind the arc and averaging a team-high 19.6 points per game to go with 8.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks.
  • She is just 27-of-94 from behind the arc in her last 15 games (.287) after making 50.5 percent in her first 17 (46-of-91). She has played the last eight games with tape on her shooting hand after breaking the tip of her right ring finger on the first play of the game at USC on Feb. 17.
  • Smith's 73 made 3-pointers are the second most for a player 6'4" or taller over the past 20 seasons. Michigan's Kate Thompson made 110 in 2012-13.
  • Smith, who averaged 20.2 points, 9.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks in 18 Pac-12 games this season, was one of two players in the country to average 20.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game in conference (Bella Alarie - Princeton). She is also one of two nationally averaging 19.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game overall (Alarie).
  • She would be just the fifth player in program history to average 20.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in a season, joining Chiney Ogwumike (2013-14 and 2012-13), Nneka Ogwumike (2011-12), Nicole Powell (2003-04) and Jeanne Ruark Hoff (1979-80 and 1978-79).
  • Smith is 12th in school history in scoring (1,632) and second in blocks (223). She is seventh in conference history in blocks.
  • This season she is 33rd in the country in scoring (19.6) and 23rd in blocks per game (2.38), the only player in the NCAA in the top 40 in both categories (Alarie has only played in 22 of Princeton's 31 games, short of the NCAA statistical minimum of appearing in 75 percent).
  • She is within range of joining an elite company of players that have put together careers of 1,600 points, 150 made 3-pointers and 200 blocks. Since 1999-00, the only three to do that are Elena Delle Donne (3,039 points; 206 3-pointers; 273 blocks), Maya Moore (3,036 points; 311 3-pointers; 204 blocks) and Breanna Stewart (2,676 points; 152 3-pointers; 414 blocks).
  • Smith needs three 3-pointers to put her name in that group.
  • Smith, who has 73 triples, 76 blocks and 628 points is the only NCAA women's basketball player to accumulate 70 3-pointers, 70 blocks and 600 points in a season in the last 20 years. It has been done once on the men's side during that span, by Shane Battier for Duke in 2000-01 (124 3-pointers; 88 blocks; 778 points).
  • Her 76 rejections this year are second in Stanford history behind Jayne Appel's 84 in 2007-08.

 
WATCH WILLIAMS »

  • Kiana Williams has slid over from her natural position of shooting guard to run point this season due to injury and hasn't skipped a beat.
  • Among the five finalists for the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award, she is second on the team in scoring (14.2 points per game), first in assists (4.8) and is attempting to become the first Stanford player to average 4.5 assists in a season since Jeanette Pohlen in 2010-11.
  • Williams, whose 71 3-pointers last season where the second-most for a freshman in Stanford history, has made another 81 this year, which is tied for eighth in program history.
  • She averaged 16.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.3 assists at this year's Pac-12 Tournament. Eleven of her 15 made field goals in the tournament were from behind the arc and in six career Pac-12 Tournament games, she averaging 16.8 points on 56.7 percent shooting, including a 58.5 percent clip from deep.
  • Williams scored seven of Stanford's final nine points in its 64-57 victory over Oregon in the championship, including a step-back 3-pointer with 86 seconds left that put the Cardinal up six.
  • She's made 152 3-pointers in her career, 10th among Power 5 conference players the past two seasons.
  • Williams also averages 34.3 minutes per game, which would be third for a Stanford player in the last two decades. Milena Flores averaged 37.6 in 1999-00 and Chiney Ogwumike played 34.4 in 2012-13.

 
CARRINGTON CLUTCH »

RECORDS SET ON ROCKY TOP »

  • On the 30th anniversary of the first meeting in their storied rivalry, Stanford went on the road and beat then-No. 9 Tennessee in Knoxville, 95-85, on Dec. 18.
  • In the first top-10 matchup between the schools since 2013, the Cardinal collected its third win against the Lady Vols in Thompson-Boling Arena. Its previous road victories in Knoxville came on Dec. 22, 2012 (73-60) and Dec. 15, 1996 (82-65).
  • Stanford shot 14-of-24 (.583) from 3-point range, an opponent record for Thompson-Boling Arena and a record-tying number of makes from deep against the Lady Vols all-time.
  • The Cardinal's 95 points were the most against Tennessee in Knoxville in 13 seasons and just two shy of the opponent record in Thompson-Boling Arena. Texas beat the Lady Vols 97-78 on Dec. 9, 1987.

RESUME BUILDERS »

  • Coupled with a Dec. 15 68-63 home victory over then-No. 3 Baylor, Stanford beat a pair of top-10 teams in the span of four days, something it last did eight years ago when it beat No. 4 Xavier, 89-52, on Dec. 28, 2010 and No. 1 UConn, 71-59, on Dec. 30, 2010 to end the Huskies' then-record 90-game winning streak. Both of those victories were at home.
  • The win against the Lady Bears, Baylor's only loss this season, was the Cardinal's first in the regular season against a top-five team since it ended No. 1 UConn's 47-game winning streak in overtime, 88-86, on Nov. 17, 2014.
  • Baylor, which entered the game leading the nation in field goal percentage (.557), shot just 34.9 percent (22-of-63), its lowest since losing 88-69 to Notre Dame in the Elite Eight on March 31, 2014 (.338).
  • Kalani Brown (16.4 ppg) and Lauren Cox (12.3 ppg), who came in averaging nearly 30 combined points per game, together went for just seven points on just 3-of-11 shooting (.273).

 
FOUR TO THE FARM »

  • Stanford bolstered an already strong recruiting class for next season with the addition of the nation's consensus No. 1 recruit, Haley Jones (Santa Cruz, Calif./Archbishop Mitty), who committed on Nov. 28.
  • Jones joined the earlier signings of top-50, five-star talents Fran Belibi (Aurora, Colo./Regis Jesuit), Hannah Jump (Los Altos Hills, Calif./Pinewood School) and Ashten Prechtel (Colorado Springs, Colo./Discovery Canyon) in Stanford's class, which is ranked second nationally by espnW HoopGurlz.
  • Jones, the Naismith Trophy Girls' High School Player of the Year, is the first No. 1 prospect to sign with Stanford since Chiney Ogwumike came to The Farm as the top player in the country in Nov. 2009.
  • Belibi, Jones and Prechtel are on the West Team for the 2019 McDonald's All American Game on March 27. Of Stanford's 24 McDonald's All-Americans all-time, nine will be on the team together next season.
