It's only November and there's a lot of season left, but it got a lot more interesting Monday as Stanford stunned two-time defending NCAA champion UConn and snapped the Huskies' 47-game winning streak.
Chiney Ogwumike had 19 points and seven rebounds and No. 6 Stanford celebrated Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer's 900th victory a few weeks later back at home, beating 23rd-ranked Gonzaga 73-45 on Saturday.
Stanford finally got around to celebrating Tara VanDerveer's 900th career victory Saturday. But the Cardinal's balanced effort in a victory over No. 23 Gonzaga gave the Hall of Fame coach even more to celebrate.
At the Cardinal's postseason gala, coach Tara VanDerveer acknowledges the team's great accomplishments -- a 79-game home winning streak, five straight Final Fours -- then asks who will step up to keep it going.
Stanford's name appeared as the No. 1 seed in the Fresno Region along with No. 16 Hampton as the first two teams officially in the NCAA tournament. The Cardinal locker room -- a family-only affair with players, coaches and staff -- erupted.
