Coaches Pick Stanford To Win Pac-10 Women's Hoops Title

Oct. 17, 2002

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - With three returning starters from last years' NCAA Tournament team, STANFORD has been tabbed by the Pac-10 women's basketball coaches as the team to beat in the 2002-03 season. The Cardinal claimed the Conference title with a perfect 18-0 league record last season.

Stanford, which finished 32-3 overall and advanced to the NCAA Tournament's Sweet Sixteen last year, garnered nine first-place votes in the preseason poll, while postseason NIT Champion Oregon earned one first-place vote. The Cardinal made its 15th straight NCAA Tournament appearance last season, while the Ducks captured the second NIT title in school history and first since 1982.

This is the third year in a row and third time overall that Stanford has been tabbed by the coaches as the Conference preseason favorite since the polls' inception in 1998-99.
