Can the Stanford Cardinal get lucky in Vegas? We are talking Stanford hoops, so join us in the game thread.

This is a must win game for Stanford. The Cardinal are coming off a brutal loss to Arizona. The last time Stanford played the Washington Huskies did not end well for the Cardinal either. The winner of this contest will advance to play the Oregon Ducks Thursday at noon.

From our game preview:

"Wednesday at noon PT, Stanford will hopefully begin it's Cinderella run into the NCAA Tournament. At this point, Stanford must win the PAC-12 tournament to make March Madness, and it all begins with a Washington team, who soundly beat Stanford 64-53 earlier in the season. Stanford has a difficult but not impossible task ahead.

The last time Stanford and Washington faced off, Washington Freshman guard Dejounte Murray scored 25 points to lead Washington to victory with their star player, Andrew Andrews, being limited by injury. Stanford luckily did not have to face Andrew Andrews at one hundred percent, but this time, the Stanford zone will need to find a way to shut him down. Leading the PAC-12 in scoring, Andrews will be a difficult task for the Stanford zone. Stanford will need to focus their attention on Andrews defensively and Dejounte Murray."
