STANFORD, Calif.- The Stanford men's basketball team is scheduled to make a pair of public appearances over the next two days at Cardinal sporting events.
Senior Josh Owens and redshirt junior Andy Brown will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday's Stanford-Oregon baseball game at 5:30 p.m. The first pitches are slated for approximately 5:20 p.m.
On Saturday at football's Spring Game, select players will be signing autographs at the northeast corner of Kezar Stadium from 1:30-2 p.m. The team will also be recognized in an on-field tribute at halftime. The Spring Game gets underway at 2 p.m.
Stanford (26-11, 10-8 Pac-12) captured its third championship in school history, closing out the year as 2012 Postseason NIT champions. Winning a school-record seven games during the month of March, Stanford has now claimed three titles overall (1942 NCAA, 1991 Postseason NIT). Appearing in the postseason for the first time in three years, the Cardinal chalked up its best win total since a 28-8 campaign in 2007-08. Despite placing seventh in regular-season conference play, Stanford wrapped up the year as the Pac-12's winningest program and tallied a league-best four victories against the RPI's top-50.
