Actually, the loss didn’t hurt them in the Pac-12 sense. They are still seeded third in the Pac-12 tournament behind second seed ASU, which beat them twice, and first seed Oregon State, which they beat in their one meeting. Cal is seeded fourth. The third seed means they get a first round bye, and of course, if the win their quarterfinal match, they will play ASU, the team that beat them twice. Oh well, third time’s a charm.

Hats off to the four Stanford players who earned Pac-12 Honors.
- Amber Orrange was named to both the All-Pac-12 squad and the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team. She is now among 13 Stanford greats to have appeared on that squad in at least three seasons for Stanford.
- Lili Thompson was named to her first All-Pac-12 team.
- Bonnie Samuelson was named All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention, her first Pac-12 post season award
- Kaylee Johnson earned a spot on the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team. She averaged 10 rebounds a game, second in the Pac-12.
So cross your fingers for Seattle. Maybe they can win it and change their luck and position in the NCAA bracket. Did you know, for the Stanford site, that Stanford is 34-3 all-time at the Pac-12 Tournament? It has won 10 of the 13 titles (2003, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013), is 12-0 all-time in the quarterfinals, 12-1 in the semifinals and 10-2 in the finals.
