According to the release on GoStanford.com, Stanford is attempting to become just the fourth team to play at Madison Square Garden in both the Preseason and Postseason NIT during the same season. That's kinda cool, even if it isn't necessarily something worth bragging about. Here are 9 other somewhat interesting things about tonight's game, some of them adapted from the same release:
- Nevada has used the same starting lineup in all 34 games this season. Stanford has used 15 different starting lineups in 34 games.
- Stanford's next win will establish a school record for most home wins in a season. Monday's win over Illinois State matched the previous record of 16 set in 2007-08.
- Nevada is 2-0 against the Pac-12 this season. The Wolf Pack won back-to-back games at home against Washington and at Arizona State in early December. This should surprise no one.
