    PAC-10 CONFERENCE NOTES

    After a slow week with only seven teams playing eight games last week, all 10 Conference squads return to action and the schedule is packed with must-see games. No. 2 Stanford hosts No. 7 Duke and No. 3 Tennessee in back-to-back contests, with the game against the Lady Vols being televised on Fox Sports Net on Dec. 19.

    Oregon and Arizona both travel to No. 25 Georgia Tech, while Washington is headed to No. 16 Michigan State. No. 14 Arizona State also has a loaded weekend at the Desert Sun Classic in Las Vegas, battling No. 13 Texas A&M and No. 6 Baylor.

    UCLA is back in action playing in two games, including hosting the Big 12's Texas Tech, while USC hosts the annual Women of Troy Basketball Classic. Washington State can be found on regional television this weekend against the University of San Francisco, California looks to bounce back at Long Beach State and Oregon State hosts UC Irvine.

    TWO PAC-10 TEAMS RANKED IN POLLS: Two Pac-10 teams are in this week's Associated Press polls, with Stanford leading the way with a No. 2 national ranking. The Cardinal have been ranked in that spot since the preseason. Arizona State is 14th in the writers' poll, with California falling out of the top 25 for the first time this season. Oregon is receiving votes for the first time all year.

    In the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, which is released Tuesdays, Stanford was No. 2, ASU was No.

    14 and Cal was No. 22 last week. Arizona, UCLA and USC have received votes in one of both polls in the preseason, while the Trojans picked up a few votes in the Nov. 30 poll after beating back-to-back ranked opponents.

    REACHING MILESTONES: A couple of players have already reached significant career milestones, while some coaches are approaching pivotal ones, as well.

    Stanford's SR F/C Jayne Appel became the 10th Pac-10 player all-time to reach the 1,000-rebound mark, also becoming just the eighth player in Conference history to accumulate 1,500 points and 1,000 rebounds. JR F Kayla Pedersen reached the 1,000-point career mark in late November, while Arizona State's SR G Danielle Orsillo did so as well in early DEcember.

    ASU head coach Charli Turner Thorne is just a two wins shy of career number 300, while California head coach Joanne Boyle needs just one victory to become just the second coach in Golden Bears history to reach triple digit wins.
