'19S3 Selection Stanford was selected this yenr because it beat Southern California nnd moved to Hie Top of the Coast Conference. Tournament officials customarily name the Conference winner ns the western representative. The selection was popular ou the const because the Stanford team tins color nnd because it defeated its two greatest rivals, Southern California and California. Stanford, in turn, selected Columbia as its opponent, when Princeton was unable to take llic invitation because of a rule prohibiting it from engaging In postseason games. Princeton gave Columbia n: fancy trimming early in the season, but the Lions won all other contests, finishing the regular season strongly.
