No. 5 Kansas Visits The Farm

  • Stanford has a chance to pick up a signature win on Sunday when No. 5/5 Kansas visits The Farm. Despite being picked to finish 10th in the Pac-12 preseason poll, the Cardinal enters the weekend as the conference’s only one-loss team.
  • Stanford is off to its best start since also opening 11-1 in 2008. The Cardinal has not started 12-1 since stringing together 26 consecutive wins to open the 2003-04 campaign. Last season, Stanford won its 11th game on Feb. 3 and 12th game on Feb. 7.
  • The Cardinal is seeking its first victory over a top-5 opponent since Jan. 28, 2007, when Stanford defeated No. 3/2 UCLA 75-68 at Maples Pavilion. Stanford's most recent win over a top-25 foe came back on Jan. 17, 2018, when the Cardinal knocked off No. 16/14 Arizona State 86-77 at Maples Pavilion.
  • Stanford has held all 12 opponents to under 70 points, representing the first time the Cardinal has accomplished the feat since a 13-game stretch from Nov. 12, 1999-Jan. 13, 2000. Stanford has allowed 57.5 points per game, a total which leads the Pac-12 and ranks 11th in the country.
  • Nine of Stanford’s 11 victories have come by double digits, including four 20-point wins and a season-best 31-point rout of William & Mary on Nov. 21.
  • In addition to playing elite defense, Stanford’s 49.6 percent field goal percentage leads the Pac-12 and ranks ninth in the country. The Cardinal has connected on 50.0 percent or better from the floor nine times this season.
