Stanford/WSU game cancelled

From Stanford Athletics:
Stanford joins Washington State in mourning the loss of the Cougars' director of strength and conditioning David Lang on Saturday afternoon. Due to his sudden passing, the Cardinal's regular-season finale at Washington State on Sunday has been cancelled.

"Our deepest sympathies go out to David's loved ones, his wife Brigitta and their children," Stanford's Setsuko Ishiyama Director of Women's Basketball Tara VanDerveer said. "Everyone associated with women's basketball is part of an extremely close, extended family and receiving this news was absolutely devastating. Washington State may be our opponent at times on the court, but June, her staff and players are our dear friends and have our love and support during this difficult time."

Lang, a member of the WSU Athletics Department for 20 years, worked closely with many of the Cougars' roughly 450 student-athletes and directly with the women's basketball and men's and women's golf programs.
