Next Opportunity Awaits

Looking to right the ship after dropping a tight battle Thursday, Stanford (16-8, 5-6 Pac-12) is set to host Arizona on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks.

• With a win, Stanford will move back to .500 in Pac-12 play, after dropping three close contests in a row.
• Junior Oscar da Silva leads the team with 15.9 points per game, a mark which ranks 10th in the conference. He also holds the 22nd-best national mark in field goal percentage (60.2), and was the Pac-12 Player of the Week for Jan. 27-Feb. 2.
• Stanford held 12 of its 13 non-conference opponents below 70 points and has limited its Pac-12 foes to an average of 64.5 points per game, which paces the conference. The program also boasts the best overall scoring defense in the Pac-12 (61.4), and the 13th-best nationally. As of Feb. 12, KenPom rates the Cardinal defense as the 10th-most efficient in the country.
• Tyrell Terry tied a career-high with 24 points against Arizona State, matching the total he put up last month at UCLA. Terry has eight 20-point outings this season, and is averaging 16.3 points per game in Pac-12 play, which is seventh-best in the conference and leads all first year players.
• Stanford is in search of its first win against the Wildcats since a 76-60 triumph on Jan. 4, 2009, which was also the Cardinal’s last home victory over Arizona. Landry Fields led squad in 2009 with a 19-point, 11-rebound double-double. The 16-point margin of victory was Stanford’s largest over Arizona since a 17-point victory in 1982-83 (86-69).

Daejon Davis has seen the most success among active Stanford players against Arizona, boasting a career average of 10.3 points per game. Davis upped his production to 14.5 per night a year ago, adding 5.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game to go with the scoring, including eight assists Feb. 24 in Tucson. Oscar da Silva contributed 10.5 points per game against Arizona last season.
