Sports Comment: Go Stanford!

Both Stanford Basketball teams are in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournaments!

The men play Texas today at 4:30 pm, and the women play Pitt tomorrow at 8:30 pm. Two tough games there.

Back when I was in college and grad school in the mid-late 80s, I was a huge fan of the Stanford women's basketball team. This was the time when they were getting really good, leading up to their national championships in 1990 and 1992. They were a fast-paced, run-and-gun team that could also pound it inside, an absolute thrill to watch. I also had a huge crush on Trisha Stevens, the tough power forward. (At one point, I was going out with someone who lived in the same dorm as Trisha and one day I was told "Trisha said you're cute". Made my week.)

No national championships since then, but the women have Candice Wiggins and Jayne Appel as the outside-inside duo that can hopefully carry them far.

Go Stanford!!! Kick some butt!!!
