23rd ranked team. they just clinched the number 2 seed in the wcc tournament after beating san diego on thursday. a win tonight would be huge for saint mary's when it comes to seeding in the ncaa tournament. but it's not going to come easy. the bulldogs have only lost 2 games this season. they're perfect in the wcc and they had a pretty convincing win over the gaels just 2 weeks ago. they've also got a potential number one overall draft pick and chet holmgren. he had a double double when the gales visited spokane tip-off. here is at 7. we're going to have highlights later tonight here on kron. 4 news. let's talk some women's hoops. like i mentioned, a lot of action in the bay area. number 2, stanford hosting washington on the farm and the huskies gave them a bit of a scare. washington took an early lead kept it at halftime and we're still in front late in the game. lauren swartz led the way with 15 points for the huskies and tt walk-ins at 10 off the bench in a wilson made. the key play of the game, though, with stanford on
one with just over a minute left she applied the full court pressure force. the turnover steal and layup. on the other end to give the cardinal the lead for good stanford survive. 63 to 56 for an an beaten pac. 12 campaign. they have now won 16 straight games and 31 consecutive in the conference. not too shabby after the game. the 5 seniors, including wilson, were honored. this will certainly not be their final game at maples pavilion as the cardinal are expected to host a couple of games in the ncaa tournament. all right. how about some soccer now? the earthquakes opening their season in san jose against the new york red bulls. one, nothing new york in the 69th minute. javier lopez heads in the corner for san jose. and that would be the equalizer. it's a 1 one tie, but only 3 minutes mere fernandez with the left footed score. red bulls back up 2 to one and 3
to one. new york was the final score. so the quakes will try to get their first win of the season next saturday against the columbus crew. all right. one final note tonight, some warriors news draymond green was back at practice today. he's been cleared for non-contact practices. he called it a positive step as he continues on his rehab from a lower back injury. still, though, no timetable on when he's going to turn to the dogs hoping it's really justine. jonathan, back to you. all right. kate will see live in prime time. thanks so much for joining us. that does it for us here at
