    STANFORD, Calif.- One has cracked the starting lineup and asserted himself as the club's top rebounding threat. The other represents one of the Cardinal's top reserves, averaging almost 13 minutes of playing time off the bench. Together, both players have contributed steadily throughout the year as the Cardinal currently sports a 15-7 overall mark.

    Recently, had a chance to catch up with the two juniors.

    After coming off the bench in his first 63 games, Fields has started all 22 contests this year and is averaging 30.0 minutes.
