Stanford can get back into the possibility of getting a #1 Seed if they're able to beat Oregon. Even if they don't most teams would not like to see them in their Bracket as a #2 Seed. Unexplainable losses to Gonzaga, Utah and especially Cal hurts them a lot, but a win today over Oregon and then if they're able to win the PAC 12 tournament who knows what the committee will do. Lose today to Oregon and they will probably end up as a #3 seed. A very dangerous team.

A #1 seed for Stanford if they win?? No chance. They need a lot of help from other top schools losing. Doubtful Baylor, UConn or MS St. lose again. Betting either Louisville or ND win out out until tournament time also.

I voted for Oregon, but it's more a hope than a prediction. I actually think the Ducks are the better team but their history in Palo Alto is very bleak, to put it mildly. (I don't think that they've won there since the late 80s.). That said, they surprised a lot of folks in the Mississippi State game and perhaps the memory of defeating Stanford in last year's Pac 12 championship game will do the trick this time, since I also believe that this year's team is stronger than the 2017-18 version. I just hope both teams bring their A-game today for those of you who haven't had a chance to see much basketball on the left coast.

Announcers talking about whether Ionescu will leave early for draft.

It's amazing how Jewell Loyd just completely changed the dynamic. Now every great junior who is draft-eligible by age elicits extensive speculation.

Just when I thought Stanford was creeping back into the game, Oregon goes on an 11-0 run to take a 20-point lead.

Alanna Smith having a miserable shooting game so far. And no one else for Stanford picking up the slack.

Woah Stanford down by 24 points at the half


Did not see that coming
Ditto. Shocked by that score. I didn't think there was any way the Ducks would run the table in the Pac. This is the biggest obstacle. Home and home w/ OSU coming up next weekend but the Beavs are looking vulnerable.

Ionescu is more than draft eligible, she would be in the Top 3 with 100 % certainty and maybe #1, The speculation should be there. I want to know.
