Men's Basketball

Battle with the Beavs

The final week of the Pac-12 season begins in Corvallis, as Stanford men's basketball takes on Oregon State on Thursday, March 2 at 6 p.m. on Pac-12 Network.

• The Cardinal is 12-17 (6-12 Pac-12) this year, with seven wins since Jan. 19, starting with a sweep of Oregon State and Oregon at home. Stanford added quadrant one wins over the stretch over Utah and No. 4 Arizona.
• Through 29 games, Spencer Jones leads the team with 13.3 points per game, and joined Stanford’s 1,000-point club on Dec. 29 with a 25-point outing against Colorado. Jones paces the program in Pac-12 play with 14.7 points per game, which ranks 10th in the league. He also ranks fifth in threes per game.
• Harrison Ingram, who was Stanford’s first Pac-12 Freshman of the Year since Casey Jacobsen in 2000, withdrew his name from the 2022 NBA Draft to return to The Farm for his sophomore campaign. He is the first Pac-12 Freshman of the Year to return since Jahii Carson (Arizona State) in 2013-14.
• Stanford ranks 10th nationally in minutes continuity, per KenPom, while also bringing in the program’s first transfer in 12 years and the first graduate transfer in program history in Michael Jones (Davidson). Jones is one of five players league-wide to score at least 31 in a game this season and ranks third on the team in scoring at 9.8 per night, behind Spencer Jones (13.3) and Ingram (10.2).
Brandon Angel has turned on the jets over the last eight games, posting 12.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game in February. He was one of three players league-wide to meet those benchmarks in the month, and the only one to also shoot greater than 50 percent from the floor.
• Despite trailing in the all-time series, 78-75, Stanford has won 33 of the last 43 games in the series, and 16 of the last 21 meetings at Gill Coliseum. The Cardinal has won the last two meetings in Corvallis.

Stanford's trip to Oregon is the final weekend of the Pac-12 regular season, with Stanford competing for optimal seeding in the Pac-12 Tournament. The Cardinal can finish anywhere from 8-11 in the final standings and can secure a top-10 seed with a win over Oregon State on Thursday. Stanford owns a tiebreaker with Washington, but Colorado has the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Cardinal. The Cardinal would finish third in a three-way tie with Colorado and Washington based on round robin results.
