Jan. 17, 2013
STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford women's basketball takes fans on a third trip to "Cardinal Land" to showcase the team's trip to the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tenn., the pregame "Dance-Off" and a 3-point contest between Taylor Greenfield and Bonnie Samuelson.
The fun in Cardinal Land precedes the sixth-ranked Cardinal (14-2, 3-1 Pac-12) hosting unbeaten Pac-12 foes No. 14/15 UCLA (13-2, 4-0 Pac-12) and USC (7-8, 4-0 Pac-12) this Friday and Sunday, respectively. Tickets for this weekend's contests are available by visiting the ticket page HERE.
The Cardinal women get the chance to travel all over the country during the season, seeing the great sights that the United States, and even other parts of the world, have to offer. While in Knoxville, Tenn. in mid-December, the Cardinal took a visit to the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. There, the team took a guided tour of the museum, getting the chance to learn the history of women's basketball and see how far the game has come since its beginnings in the late 19th century.
Forward Mikaela Ruef gives fans a summary of the team's trip, detailing the photo album from the trip.
Two of the Cardinal's long-range shooters, Taylor Greenfield and Bonnie Samuelson, compete in a 3-point shooting contest at Maples Pavilion. The duo, which is shooting a combined 36.3 percent from behind the arc this season, took turns on the Maples court trying to sink treys while trash-talking and attempting to "psych-out" one another. Although before the contest they agreed that there would not be any Journey psych-outs.
Fans also have the chance to choose their own video between the options of the team's pregame "Dance-Off" or Samuelson's half-court shot attempt.
Finally, team members, to recognize the "Women in Sports" celebration taking place at Jan. 27's home game against Colorado, share with fans some of the women who have inspired them on their journey to Stanford.
