"They say defense wins championships. Stanford held New Mexico to 53, and Kansas finished at 57, even with the last-minute shenanigans. So despite an ugly, ugly offensive performance today, the Cardinal have pulled off two upsets and are headed to the Sweet 16." Johnny Dawkins' 2-3 (and 1-3-1) zones save the day, as the Cardinal keep on dancing with a 60-57 thriller over the No. 2 seed Jayhawks.

Well, well, well. It's not supposed to be that easy to whip the L.A. schools in Maples, is it? That was a big homestand.

And we are playing better than cal or Sparky or the Buffaloes.

If only Stanford played Oregon State every game. With a 48-point second half, the Card evened out their Pac-12 record at 7-7 (16-11 overall), downing the host Beavers, 82-72. All five Stanford starters finished in double figures, so top billing goes to 21st birthday boy Aaron Bright. On beautiful passing, Bright added six assists against only one turnover, and had a game-clinching three late.

The treadmill that tormented Stanford basketball never slowed. But the Cardinal have recently sped up.
