'Tree' streaker disrupts Stanford basketball game


A male streaker with "Tree" and a tree painted on his chest and "To be continued" on his back made a mad dash across the floor at Maples Pavilion during a break in Sunday's (Feb. 19) game against University of Arizona, at Stanford.

He dashed up a stair aisle, out an exit and streaked off. Police are seeking his identity.

The incident followed the sacking this month of the woman who played the Stanford Tree mascot, for performing drunk.

Stanford lost the game 76-72.
