Stanford vs. Oregon: Cardinal Drop Tough Home Loss To Ducks

The Stanford Cardinal fell to the Oregon Ducks 67-59 in an historic victory for Oregon. It marks Oregon’s first victory over Stanford at Palo Alto since 1986. The loss comes at a bad time for the Cardinal as they were looking to get back into the top half of the Pac-10 standings. The loss drops Stanford into a three-way tie for seventh place with Oregon and Oregon State. The Cardinal don’t travel to Eugene until February 26 so it remains to be seen what value that game will hold.
