    STANFORD, Calif.- The Stanford men's basketball program will honor its four-member senior class prior to Saturday's regular season finale against USC. Kenny Brown, Anthony Goods, Lawrence Hill and Mitch Johnson have all enjoyed successful careers on The Farm, reaching the postseason every year during their tenure.

    Recently, www.gostanford.com had a chance to catch up with the four seniors.

    (22) Kenny Brown
    Guard - 6-2 - 200
    Southlake, TX (Carroll HS)
    Added to the roster as a walk-on shortly before the start of the 2004-05 campaign, Brown deferred his admission to Baylor Dental School for a year in order to return to the men's basketball program this season. The Cardinal has benefited as a result, with Brown providing veteran leadership off the bench and his trademark three-point shooting. He has played in 21 games so far, making two starts, while averaging 4.3 points per game in 11.7 minutes. Brown has scored in double-figures twice this year, pouring in a season-best 12 points against Northern Arizona back on Dec. 17. He is 14-42 from beyond the arc.

    (4) Anthony Goods
    Guard - 6-3 - 200
    Corona, CA (Centennial HS)
    Goods has emerged as Stanford's top scoring threat this year, averaging a team-high 15.7 points per game while pulling down 3.3 rebounds per game. Goods is also the team leader in three-pointers with 52 (39.1 percent from long range) and his performance at the foul line this year (110-138, 79.7 percent) is almost equal to the production over his first three seasons combined (125-165, 75.7 percent). That type of accuracy and aggressiveness has helped Goods become one of the Cardinal's go-to performers, as he has scored in double-figures 22 times while serving as the squad's leading scorer on 10 occasions.

Joining Anthony Goods as active members of Stanford's 1,000-point club, Hill is averaging 13.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game- totals that rank second on the club. Hill is shooting 51.5 percent from the field, 63.4 percent from the foul line and 31.3 percent from three-point territory. For good measure, he has also dished out 60 assists, tallied 16 blocks and racked up 23 steals.

    (1) Mitch Johnson
    Guard - 6-1 - 185
    Seattle, WA (O'Dea HS)
    Thanks to a breakthrough junior campaign that resulted in All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention honors, Johnson garnered national attention at the start of this year when he was selected as a candidate for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the country's top point guard. A consistent performer and proven leader, Johnson has enjoyed another solid season as the Cardinal's floor general. He is averaging 7.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game while starting 23 games. Johnson leads the club in steals (34), is shooting 43.5 percent from the field and 38.6 percent from three-point territory. Johnson matched his career-high scoring output with 16 points against Northwestern on Dec. 20 and has dished out a season-best eight assists four different times this year.
