On Sunday evening, No. 1 seed Stanford women’s basketball (28-3, 16-0 Pac-12) defeated No. 8 seed Kansas (20-9, 11-7 Big 12) 91-65 behind a career-high 36 points from senior guard Lexie Hull in her last game at Maples. The Cardinal now advance to the Sweet 16, where they will face No. 4 seed Maryland (21-8, 13-4 Big 10), a team they handily defeated in late November when the Terrapins were ranked No. 2 in the nation.

Daily photographer Michal Kheir captured the victory from the sidelines.
