Cardinal has a new intern

Mary Merg has joined the Cardinal staff as an intern for the 2015-16 season.

Mary was a standout guard for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Warhawks from 2010-14.

She stepped onto the coaching ladder as an assistant coach at the Division III St. Mary's University in Minnesota. In April, she attended the 2015 Women's Basketball Coaches Association "So You Want To Be A Coach" workshop.

As an intern at Stanford, Mary expects to handle a lot of the "behind the scenes" work, including recruiting, video and other day-to-day operations.

Complete 2015-16 schedule announced

Stanford Women's Basketball announced its complete 2015-16 schedule today.

The Cardinal is scheduled for 30 regular-season games. 19 of them will be televised — 17 on the Pac-12 Networks, one on ESPN and one on ESPNU.

Game dates and times are a bit more consistent than last season. 25 of the Cardinal's 30 regular season games are on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

In conference play, Stanford plays Washington and Washington State only at home and USC and UCLA only away. It plays the other seven Pac-12 teams both at home and away. As was the case last season, Stanford and Cal play both of their games in the same week about midway through the season.

This is the schedule from the FBC. Game information includes links to each opponent's women's basketball website and maps of the venues. Links to other media coverage (live streams, radio, live stats) and FBC pre-game and post-game events will be added as soon as the information is available.

This is the announcement and the schedule from Stanford Athletics.
