Stanford Cardinal Basketball Schedule in 2014-15
The Stanford Cardinal are ready to hit the court this season and
see how high they can climb in the standings. This is a talented group of players that is looking very promising for the 2014-15
season, and fans are hoping their talent level can result in a lot of wins on the court. The Cardinal call the Pac-12 Conference
home, and it's one of the most challenging and competitive conferences in the college hoops world. Stanford is coming off
a solid 2013-14 season in which they notched 23 wins on the season and posted a 10-8 record in conference play. Stanford was
able to make the NCAA Tournament thanks to a good regular season and even made it to the Sweet Sixteen before falling to the
Dayton Flyers. The Cardinal would love to build on that success this season and make a run at the Final Four, but first they'll
have to play well in the regular season against some tough opponents.
The Cardinal will be faced with a tough matchup
this season when the Arizona Wildcats hit the court at Maples Pavilion. Arizona finished atop the conference standings last
season and will be looking to do it yet again this time around, so the Cardinal know that they're going to have to play their
best to get a win against this conference foe. The Wildcats lost some key players to the NBA, though, so it could be the right
time for Stanford to strike. This game is sure to see the stands packed.
Stanford will also host the UCLA Bruins this
season for what should be one of the most difficult matchups of the year. The Bruins have one of the most storied programs
in college hoops, and they're coming off a fine 2013-14 season. The Cardinal would love to make a statement to the rest of
the Pac-12 by taking down the Bruins this season. There are some other great matchups on the schedule this season, so make
sure to take a look.

and have been on the up and up ever since 1989. With six appearances during the 90s and an appearance every year from 2000-2008,
the Cardinal have delivered some great seasons to their dedicated fans, though they're still waiting to push through and capture
their first ever national title. The Cardinal have even made it to the Elite Eight three times and the Final Four twice, and
