Stanford Cardinal Basketball TicketsThe Stanford Cardinal basketball team has a long history that dates back to 1913, first as a member of the Pacific Coast Conference, then the Athletic Association of Western Universities and finally the Pac-8 in 1968. Under Head Coach Everett Dean, Stanford won its first and only NCAA Tournament with a 53-38 victory over Dartmouth in 1942 despite its best player missing the game with the flu. Stanford did not return to the tournament until the tenure of Head Coach Mike Montgomery, who led the team to a school-record 392 wins between 1987 and 2004. In 1998, No. 3 seed Stanford advanced to the Final Four, where it lost to eventual champion Kentucky by a score of 86-85 in overtime. In the final year of Montgomery’s tenure, Stanford reached No. 1 in the polls with a 30-2 overall record and a 17-1 conference record. However, the team was upset in the second round of that year's NCAA Tournament by Alabama.
