The Stanford Cardinal and Washington Huskies are both coming off tough losses from Thursday night and both programs need to get back on track. With the first half of conference play nearly complete, there is no more room for error if you hope to be playing in March Madness. The Cardinal have played well to this point and are in second place, and while UW has as much talent as anyone, they have struggled mightily to put it all together this year.
Tipoff from Seattle is set for 3 p.m. today, with the action televised on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and ROOT Sports. Glen Kuiper will serve as the play-by-play guy, while analyst Dan Belluomini will provide insight into the matchup. On ROOT, Kevin Calabro and Lenny Wilkens will call the action.
Those in the Bay Area can find the game live on the radio on KNBR 1050 AM, with John Platz and Drew Shiller calling the action. David Lombardi will broadcast the game on KZSU 90.1 FM, as well. Fans can also follow along on the official team website, GoStanford.com.
Stanford holds a slight lead in the all-time series matchup, although Washington has won seven of the last ten meetings. The Cardinal desperately need to come through and earn a split on the road this afternoon.
