Trojan War

No. RV/25 Stanford (15-2, 4-0 Pac-12) continues its three-game Pac-12 road trip on Saturday, Jan. 18 when it travels to the Galen Center to face USC (14-3, 3-1 Pac-12). The contest will air on Pac-12 Networks at 3:30 p.m.

• Stanford sits alone atop the Pac-12 table as the only undefeated team in conference play (4-0). The Cardinal’s .882 overall winning percentage paces the conference, and is sixth-best nationally.
• Junior Oscar da Silva leads the team with 15.9 points per game, a mark which ranks 11th in the conference. He also holds the 20th-best national mark in field goal percentage (61.0).
• Stanford held 12 of its 13 non-conference opponents below 70 points and limited its first three Pac-12 foes to an average of 57.0 points per game. The program boasts the best overall scoring defense in the Pac-12 (58.4), and the seventh-best nationally.
• The Cardinal is 4-0 in Pac-12 play for the first time since 2003-04. The 2003-04 team, which went 30-2 (17-1 Pac-10), won its first 17 conference games.
• Stanford is looking for its first win in the Galen Center since 2014-15, while the programs split a pair a year ago. The Cardinal is 7-3 against the Trojans in the past 10 meetings.

Stanford climbed into the national rankings for the first time since Jan. 19, 2015 with a No. 25 ranking in the USA Today coaches’ poll, which was also where the Cardinal sat in 2015. The program sits 20 votes shy of a top-25 rank in the AP poll as the second team out.

Point guard Tyrell Terry was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week on Jan. 13 after his impressive weekend against the Washington schools. Terry averaged 16.5 points per game, including a career-best 22 against the Cougars and 11 vs. the Huskies, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:37 to go.
