  • The Cardinal earned its 32nd consecutive and 33rd overall NCAA Tournament bid by collecting the Pac-12's automatic berth into the field after winning its 13th conference tournament championship.
  • Since its first NCAA Tournament appearance in 1982, Stanford has won two national championships (1990, 1992), reached 13 Final Fours (1990-92, 1995-97, 2008-12, 2014, 2017), 19 Elite Eights, 26 Sweet 16s and compiled an NCAA Tournament record of 88-30 (.746).
  • Stanford's 13 Final Four appearances are the third-most by any school entering this year's tournament, and its 33 overall appearances rank behind only Tennessee (38).
  • Tennessee is the only school that has a longer active streak of NCAA Tournament appearances than Stanford's 32. The Lady Vols have earned a bid to all 38 NCAA Tournaments.
  • The Cardinal's 88 wins in the NCAA Tournament are third all-time behind Tennessee (125) and Connecticut (119) as are its 118 tournament games. Tennessee has appeared in 155 and Connecticut 138.
  • Stanford's .746 NCAA Tournament winning percentage is fourth all-time among programs with a minimum of 20 games. Connecticut is No. 1 (.862; 119-19), Tennessee is No. 2 (.806; 125-30) and Baylor is No. 3 (.754; 46-15).
  • The Cardinal is a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament for the 12th time and first since 2017. Stanford has gone on to reach the Final Four as a No. 2 seed six times (1991, 1995, 2008, 2009, 2014, 2017), defeating the No. 1 seed in the regional final in 1991 (Georgia), 2008 (Maryland) and 2017 (Notre Dame).
  • Tara VanDerveer leads all coaches in NCAA Tournament appearances with 34. Pat Summitt (Tennessee), Andy Landers (Georgia) and Geno Auriemma (Connecticut) are tied for second with 31.
  • VanDerveer's 86 tournament wins are third all-time behind Geno Auriemma (119) and Summitt (112) and her .735 tournament winning percentage (minimum 20 games) is sixth behind Auriemma (.862), Summitt (.830), Linda Sharp (USC/Texas State - .760), Kim Mulkey (Baylor - .754) and Leon Barmore (Louisiana Tech - .747).


  • Stanford advanced by running its winning streak in NCAA Tournament games at Maples Pavilion to 18 with wins over No. 15 seed UC Davis (79-54) and No. 7 seed BYU (72-63).
  • As a city, Stanford has served as a host for 73 NCAA Tournament games, the second-most behind Knoxville, Tenn. (86).
  • Each of those games has been played in Maples Pavilion, which has hosted more NCAA Tournament games than any other facility. Tennessee's Thompson-Boling Arena is second (71).
  • This season was the 22nd in which Stanford has hosted NCAA Tournament games in Maples Pavilion since staging its first in 1989 and the 21st in which the Cardinal opened up its postseason at home.


  • Stanford's .875 winning percentage (28-4) was 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 a 45-point rout to 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 30 games for the 15th time. The Cardinal won 30 or more games for seven straight years from 2008-14. Its last 30-win campaign was the season of its most recent Final Four appearance in 2016-17.
  • 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).

  • Stanford is in the midst of an 11-game winning streak, tying its longest of the season. The Cardinal also won 11 consecutive games from Dec. 15 to Jan. 25. Its current stretch is tied with Notre Dame for the fourth-longest active streak in the nation. Baylor has won 25 in a row, South Dakota State 18 and Connecticut 15.
  • Stanford, 6-2 against ranked teams, is one of two schools in the nation with four top-10 wins (No. 3 Baylor - Dec. 15; No. 9 Tennessee - Dec. 18; No. 7 Oregon State - Feb. 8; No. 6 Oregon - March 10) along with Notre Dame.


  • A win Saturday would advance the Cardinal to its 20th regional final. Stanford has made the Elite Eight in 11 of the past 15 seasons.
  • Stanford, which has advanced to the Final Four in seven of the last 11 seasons, is 199-49 (.802) in games away from Maples Pavilion since 2007-08 (road/neutral), one of only three schools to have more than 180 road and neutral wins along with Connecticut (234) and Notre Dame (199).
  • Stanford has met Missouri State (formerly Southwest Missouri State) twice before, most recently beating the Bears, 82-65, at the Gulf Coast Showcase in Estero, Fla. on Nov. 27, 2015.
  • The Cardinal's current seniors were freshmen in their fifth career games. Marta Sniezek had four points, three assists and three steals in 18 minutes, Alanna Smith had three rebounds in eight minutes and Shannon Coffee one rebound in three minutes.
  • Stanford went 15-of-33 from behind the arc in that win, converting at a 46.2 percent clip.
  • The first victory came in Maples on Dec. 18, 1993 when the No. 13 Cardinal beat the No. 17 Bears, 74-63, in the Fry's Electronics Cardinal Classic behind 20 points and 13 rebounds from Rachel Hemmer.


  • According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Pac-12's 11-1 record -- only Cal lost, in the second round to Baylor -- is the second-best by a conference that played at least 10 early-round games. The best was the SEC, which went 13-1 in 1997 and put six teams in the Sweet 16.
  • This is the second time in three years the Pac-12 has five teams in the Sweet 16 (2017).
  • It is the fourth consecutive year the Pac-12 has at least four teams in the Sweet 16.
  • The Pac-12 has the most wins (52) and best winning percentage (.732) in the tournament since 2016.
  • At least two teams have advanced to the Elite Eight the last three years (including three in 2018 and 2016), and there has been at least one Pac-12 team in the Final Four in nine of the last 11 years, including a league record two in 2016 (Oregon State and Washington).


  • DiJonai Carrington, Alanna Smith and Kiana Williams were voted to the 15-person All-Pac-12 squad, Smith was also named to the Pac-12 All-Defensive team, Lacie Hull earned a spot on the Pac-12 All-Freshman team and Pac-12 All-Defensive honorable mention accolades and Lexie Hull received a Pac-12 All-Freshman honorable mention nod.
  • Stanford now has 75 All-Pac-12 honorees in program history and 163 all-time Pac-12 awardees including honorable mention, freshman and defensive teams, the top totals in league history.
  • On March 4, Smith was also selected as the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She is Stanford's fifth women's basketball awardee, joining Brittany McPhee (2017-18), Chiney Ogwumike (2013-14), Kayla Pedersen (2010-11) and Jayne Appel (2009-10).
  • A school-record 10 Cardinal were named to Pac-12 all-academic teams on March 13. Every player on the roster that met the playing time requirements earned recognition for having over a 3.0. Stanford's three freshmen were not eligible, nor was Marta Sniezek, who hasn't played this season.


  • 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.
  • Sophomore Maya Dodson returned to the lineup at Cal on Jan. 31 after missing the previous eight games with a left foot injury. She didn't suit up for Stanford's two wins in Los Angeles on Feb. 15 and 17, has been back on the court for the last nine games and started the past seven.


  • The Cardinal is 36th in the country in scoring offense (74.9) and 19th in scoring margin (+14.3).
  • Stanford hasn't averaged more than 75.0 points per game since 2013-14 and has averaged 68.7 (2017-18), 68.8 (2015-16) and 69.3 (2014-15) in three of the last four years. 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 24th nationally in field goal percentage (.450), 26th in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.19) and 51st in fewest turnovers (431).
  • Those categories are just a couple of many where the Cardinal has seen a marked improvement year-over-year. Last season, Stanford was 87th in field goal percentage (.424), 126th in assist-to-turnover ratio (0.93) and 230th in fewest turnovers (518).


  • Following an offensive lull over through late January and much of February, Stanford got back on track with a blistering performance in a 71-50 win over No. 17 Arizona State on Feb. 24.
  • The Cardinal shot 61.9 percent (26-of-42) from the floor, the program's best field goal percentage against a ranked opponent in 20 seasons (readily available records since 1999-00).
  • Stanford's previous high over the last two decades was the 61.7 percent (29-of-47) it shot in an 86-69 win over No. 16 Purdue on Nov. 26, 2013.
  • The Cardinal was 11-of-12 (.917) from two-point range in the second half.
  • It is the third-highest field goal percentage in the country this season against a ranked team. No. 22 Iowa shot 63.0 percent (34-of-54) in an 81-63 win over No. 23 Minnesota on Jan. 14 and No. 17 Syracuse shot 62.1 percent (36-of-58) in a 94-88 win over No. 22 Florida State on Feb. 28.


  • After starting the season 17-1, Stanford went 2-3 over its next five games before reeling off  its current streak of 11 consecutive wins.
  • Stanford shot 46.5 percent (535-of-1150) from the floor overall and averaged 80.7 points in its first 18, made 39.8 percent and averaged 66.4 points during its 2-3 stretch and is shooting 44.6 percent and averaging 69.0 points during its 11-game winning streak.
  • Over the season's first 18 games, the Cardinal was making 38 percent of its 3-pointers (177-of-467) and an average of 9.8 per game. In the next five those numbers dipped to 28.2 percent (35-of-124) and 7.0 per game and in the last 11 Stanford has been 34.2 percent from behind the arc (95-of-278) and made an average of 8.6 per game.
  • Stanford's last three home games before it's thumping of ASU were its three lowest-scoring games of the season as well as its three worst shooting performances. The Cardinal scored 61 points on 35.8 percent shooting in a 61-44 win over No. 7 Oregon State on Feb. 8, 48 points on 31.7 percent shooting in an 88-48 loss to No. 3 Oregon on Feb. 10 and 56 points on 36.8 percent shooting in a 56-54 win over Arizona on Feb. 22.


  • Stanford is 17th in the country, averaging 8.9 3-point makes per game and 44th in 3-point percentage, making 35.4 percent.
  • Stanford's 16 3-pointers on Nov. 11 against Idaho tied a program single-game record also achieved at UCLA on Feb. 24, 2002 and at Washington on Feb. 24, 2001.
  • Entering the season, Stanford had made 14 3-pointers in a game 16 times in 1,389 games (1.2 percent). This year's Cardinal has done it three times against Idaho (16), San Francisco (15) and Tennessee (14).
  • The Cardinal made 31.9 percent of its attempts from behind the arc last season, the second-worst percentage in program history, and was also a program-low 42.4 percent from the floor overall.


  • Stanford's scouting-report defense, typically one of the strongest in the country, got off to a bit of a slow start this season. Through the season's first 20 games, Cardinal opponents were shooting 36.8 percent from the field, 34.6 percent from behind the arc and averaging 63.7 points per game.
  • From November through January, Stanford was 55th in the nation in field goal percentage defense, 313th in 3-point field goal percentage defense and 167th in scoring defense.
  • The Cardinal has been locked in defensively since the start of February excluding the outlier against Oregon on Feb. 10. In its 13 victories since Feb. 1, Stanford's defense has given up 53.8 points and held its opponents to 32.5 percent shooting (248-of-762) and 27.2 percent from behind the arc (72-of-265).
  • In addition to its lockdown performance against Oregon in the Pac-12 Tournament championship, Cal (50) and Oregon State (44) were limited to season-low points totals and UCLA (51), Arizona State (50) and Washington State (42) were held to their second-lowest.
  • The No. 7 Beavers came in leading the nation in 3-point field goal percentage (.430) and were sixth in field goal percentage (.492). Stanford limited OSU to 44 points on 28.6 percent shooting (16-of-56) and 19.0 percent on 3-pointers (4-of-21).
  • Stanford leads the conference and is 19th in the country in blocks per game (5.1).


  • Alanna Smith is on the national ballot for the John R. Wooden Award and is a finalist for the Katrina McClain Award and Senior CLASS Award.
  • She received her first All-America honor of the season on March 14 when she was named to the espnW All-America second team.
  • A psychology major with a 3.47 cumulative GPA, three weeks ago Smith was named the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year and two weeks ago 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 51.7 percent from the field, 39.9 percent from behind the arc and averaging a team-high 19.8 points per game to go with 8.7 rebounds and 2.2 blocks.
  • She is just 33-of-107 from behind the arc in her last 17 games (.308) after making 50.5 percent in her first 17 (46-of-91). She has played the last 10 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 79 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 10th in school history in scoring (1,676) and second in blocks (223). She is seventh in conference history in blocks.
  • This season she is 31st in the country in scoring (19.7) and 32nd in blocks per game (2.24), the only player in the NCAA in the top 40 in both categories (Alarie only played in 23 of Princeton's 32 games, short of the NCAA statistical minimum of appearing in 75 percent).
  • Smith's third and final 3-pointer against UC Davis in the first round was the 150th of her career, which moved her into some exclusive company. She became just the fourth NCAA women's basketball player over the past 20 seasons to put together careers of 1,600 points, 200 blocks and 150 3-pointers, joining 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, who has 79 triples, 76 blocks and 672 points this year 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 and her 79 made 3-pointers are 12th. She is 28 points away from becoming the fifth Cardinal player to score 700 in a season (Chiney Ogwumike; Nneka Ogwumike, Candice Wiggins; Kate Stabird).
  • Since her role increased as a sophomore, Smith has averaged 17.7 points per game in 10 NCAA Tournament games over the past three seasons, which is sixth in the country among active players (minimum six games played). Arike Ogunbowale (23.4), Napheesa Collier (21.8), Asia Durr (20.2), Sabrina Ionescu (19.6), Jessica Shepard (19.4), Teaira McCowan (17.6) and Ruthy Hebard (17.5) are the only other active players averaging over 17.0 points per game in the NCAA Tournament since 2016-17.
  • She has scored 20+ in four of her last five NCAA Tournament games.


  • 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 (14.3 points per game), first in assists (4.9) 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 87 this year, which is tied for fifth 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 158 3-pointers in her career, 10th among Power 5 conference players the past two seasons.
  • Williams also averages 34.2 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.
  • In five career NCAA Tournament games, Williams is averaging 14.4 points, shooting 44.8 percent from deep (13-of-29) and has a 2.57 assist-to-turnover ratio (18-7).


  • DiJonai Carrington was named to the Pac-12 All-Tournament Team after averaging 17.3 points and 8.3 rebounds, including a double-double in the semifinal and 22 points and nine rebounds in the final.
  • The junior has scored 20+ points four times and in double figures in 28 of Stanford's 34 games.
  • She's pulled down 10 or more rebounds in eight games, put up seven double-doubles and is one of four Power 5 conference players in the country under 6'0" averaging 14.0 points and 7.0 rebounds along with Sabrina Ionescu (Oregon), Anriel Howard (Mississippi St.) and Mikayla Pivec (Oregon State).
  • In the Cardinal's second of three top-10 wins this season, Carrington had a career-high 33 points and 13-rebounds in a 95-85 victory at No. 9 Tennessee on Dec. 18. She was 11-of-15 (.733) from the floor and 4-of-5 (.800) from deep and became just the second player in the last 20 years to have 33 points, 13 rebounds and four made 3-pointers against a ranked opponent.


  • 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.
  • Stanford shot 55 percent overall (33-of-60) to score its 95 points, a program record for scoring on the road against a top-10 team.


  • 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).


  • 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.
  • On March 25, Belibi became the first woman since Candace Parker in 2004 to win the Powerade Jam Fest dunk title.
