It wasn't enough for him to shoot the whole season of home games or to travel to L.A. for the Pac-10 Tournament. Photographer Mark Godi wanted to cap the 2006-07 Stanford Men's Basketball season with a gallery from last week's postseason banquet. See all 15 players take the podium during a wonderful evening that celebrated the Stanford team and season, while sending off a pair of seniors.

After a devastating and disappointing performance on the biggest stage of the year, players had a hard time finding the words after Thursday's loss in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Much more was said by head coach Trent Johnson, who spoke frankly about Louisville's press, Stanford's tightness, his disappointment, the effects of the loss, Brook Lopez and more.

Here is the blow-by-blow account of events and observations in Stanford's 78-58 loss to Louisville.

This Pac-10 season has been a thriller, and it ended in fitting fashion when rivals Stanford and Arizona dueled into overtime at Maples Pavilion this weekend. Mark Godi again captured the action for us from courtside, and his 31 shots shared here capture the fantastic battles of Lawrence Hill, Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez, Taj Finger, Kenny Brown, etc. against Marcus Williams, Ivan Radenovic and more.

Saturday at Maples Pavilion was not for the faint of heart. Stanford played miserable and miraculous basketball, all in the span of a couple hours against Arizona. And then after a made-for-Hollywood script with walk-on Kenny Brown shooting the Cardinal into overtime, a post-season clinching win slipped through Stanford's fingers. It was a classic and crazy game between two archrivals.

While most Cardinal fans are pretty pleased today with Stanford's win Thursday night, half of the team is doubled over in pain. Literally. Six players are down with food poisoning on the eve of tomorrow's regular season finale against Arizona. Against a team ranked second in the Pac-10 in field goal percentage, Stanford needs all of its energy to defend and will be greatly challenged Saturday.

In perhaps Stanford's most complete game of the year, Mark Godi may have delivered his best performance behind the lens. Enjoy these 30 photos taken courtside from the Cardinal's 88-69 demolition of the Ducks. The gallery brings home Stanford's suffocating defense, offensive aggression... plus a certain official who made no friends at Maples Pavilion.
