    Who is #5 in the Pac 12?

    I'm wondering that too. Just as a guess, I think if it's already known tonight that Utah can't play Wednesday, the teams below Utah will move up a seed. Then the #5 will get a bye into round 2, as there will be no #12. On the other hand, if Utah thinks they may be able to play, but they end...

    Which top seniors will return for the 21-22 season?

    At Senior Day today, Tara said she would like all three seniors to return and she's ordered their jerseys for next year. Fan thinking on the Cardboard is that none of them are really likely to come back, though. Alyssa Jerome doesn't play a lot, Kiana Williams is projected at least by some as a...

    Nice results for Lindy LaRocque in her first year!

    Southern California @ #10 UCLA - 2/26/21

    USC has a nice arena for WBB. I sat in a comfy seat there for some games once when the Pac-12 men and women both played their season tournament in LA. Some games were at Staples Center and some at USC, which are walking distance apart. But indeed if you were a USC WBB fan, you'd be a rarity.

    Week 14 games (Feb. 22-28)

    Pedantic rant: The famous line from Shakespeare is "Wherefore art thou Romeo?" The word "wherefore" is not an old fashioned synonym for "where"; it actually means "for what reason" or simply "why". Juliet is not calling out to Romeo to ask where he is. She is meditating on why the mere names...

    Which top seniors will return for the 21-22 season?

    For Stanford, Tara said in a recent video (sorry, I forgot which one) that she'd like Kiana Williams to come back. I don't know how likely that is to actually happen.

    The article says Kyle Pedersen. The former Stanford WBB great was Kayla Pedersen. From wikipedia it seems Kyle is Kayla's younger brother.

    I will mark your words for sure. I would never mock them.

    Who is #5 in the Pac 12?

    OSU only played Stanford once.

    No love for Tara bringing her team through the longest road trip ever?

    Week 13 games (Feb. 15-21)

    I remember Cal was desperately in need of healthy guards. They picked up an early HS grad Mia Mastrov recently, and I see she scored 12 points against ASU.

    Who is #5 in the Pac 12?

    Stanford is short one game against Oregon State. They made up the only other Pac-12 game they had postponed (namely WSU).

    #13 Oregon @ #8 UCLA - 2/19/21

    It's even tougher to compare conferences this year than most because the pandemic led to a lot fewer interconference games being scheduled than normal. Pac-12 especially limited their travel distances and thus didn't play much if at all outside the western states.

    Salary dump to get under the cap? Makes no sense to me otherwise.

    #6 Stanford @ #13 Oregon - 2/15/21

    Prechtel was out this game on concussion protocol. She could have gotten some minutes.

    #6 Stanford @ #13 Oregon - 2/15/21

    Not with these refs for sure. But seriously, Oregon is good and will be a tough out in the tournament.

    Compare this with the latest BY poll. The top 6 are identical and next 4 are the same except for order.

    This is remarkably close to the top 16 selection committee reveal! The top 6 are identical, and the next 4 are the same but in a different order.

    Wow. I rarely get to bed before midnight Pacific time. So you frequently get up when I'm just going to bed.

    The article does say that USAB chipped in for a big chunk of her medical expenses from an emergency fund.

    I went to bed at 2am Pacific last night. You must have been just getting up.

    Along with the time change to 9pm Eastern, the TV channel will be ESPN now, not ESPN2. https://www.espn.com/womens-college-basketball/schedule

    Melissa McFerrin retires immediately....

    Sounds like spin. Given that her contract was expiring in two months, I imagine the university declined to renew it. Why she left in midseason is unclear, but it doesn't suggest a friendly departure.

    The game time has been moved to 6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern.

    #5 Stanford @ Oregon St - 2/13/21

    I didn't really notice Stanford letting OSU back in. OSU played great in the first half to hang with Stanford, but faded in the 3rd quarter and ran out of gas entirely in the 4th.

    Missouri @ #1 South Carolina - 2/11/21

    It's an interesting symmetry that after their overtime meeting, both SCar and UConn struggled in the first half in their next game, against an unranked team. Maybe some mental fatigue from the OT contest.

    Utah @ #6 Stanford - 2/07/21

    I see. I actually do think Brink falls a fair amount for a big. But she definitely is a lot stronger than she looks, plus being quite feisty, so she isn't easy to push around.

    Utah @ #6 Stanford - 2/07/21

    I wonder if the starters would have done better in the 4th quarter against Colorado if they'd gotten a bit more rest earlier in the game. Kiana played 40 minutes against Colorado.

    Utah @ #6 Stanford - 2/07/21

    Being so slim, I think she has a high center of gravity. She might also have a strategy of falling to avoid spraining an ankle or knee while making an awkward step to try to stay upright. Steph Curry does that to protect his oft-injured ankles. Don't laugh too much, I'm just throwing this out...

    2020-21 midseason transfer thread

    Not sure, but I doubt it. First, she opted out of the season because of COVID. Are players allowed by the NCAA to change their minds about that? Second, I'm not sure if she's graduated from Stanford yet or still has a quarter or two to complete. I think she is a grad transfer, not a midseason...

    I've been going to Yahoo Sports to get the AP wire service stories about the games. They used to be available on ESPN's web site but now no longer are.

    Oregon will prove they should be more than 1 spot above Arizona in the rankings.

    #11 Oregon @ California - 1/10/21

    Cal has a severe shortage of players this year. Daniels looks good; did anyone else stand out? Hopefully they can get back to respectable in a year or two with players back from injury and new recruiting classes.
