SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Stanford has been picked by the Pac-12 coaches to win the conference title again this season behind reigning Player of the Year Chiney Ogwumike.
Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer's Cardinal received a maximum 121 points and 11 first-place votes ahead of Thursday's Pac-12 media day.
