This is the first of three parts of an interview we did with the veteran coach in his Stanford office May 19. In this segment, he talks about losing to red-hot Loyola Marymount in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in December, ending a Cardinal season that didn’t go as planned, although everything pointed toward it being one in which Stanford would make a title run. But everything changed last summer when All-American middle Inky Ajanaku was lost for the 2015 season to a knee injury. She didn’t get to finish her career with fellow seniors Madi Bugg, Brittany Howard and Jordan Burgess and Stanford was never the same.
