This week in Pac-12 women's basketball
KEY PAC-12 MATCHUPS THIS WEEK AS TRIO BEGIN WEEK UNDEFEATED
The Pac-12 features three teams -- ARIZONA STATE, STANFORD and OREGON STATE-- who are undefeated in Pac-12 play. The trio are all ranked inside the AP top-15 with Oregon State checking in at No. 9, followed by No. 13 Stanford and No. 14 Arizona State. Last week, Stanford swept through the Northwest with a four-point win at WASHINGTON (the Huskies’ first home loss of the year) and a overtime win at WASHINGTON STATE.
The Huskies rebounded at CALIFORNIA on Sunday, snapping the Bears’ four-game win streak.
The Sun Devils and Beavers each cruised by its in-state rivals with two wins. This Friday will feature a number of key matchups. Arizona State takes its 11-game win streak to Berkeley to face the Golden Bears, who are 7-1 at Haas Pavilion this season.
Meanwhile, Washington State will try to snap its three-game losing skid, playing at Oregon State, who is riding its own four-game win streak. Stanford, who has rebounded to win six-straight, hosts both Arizona schools, starting with the Wildcats on Friday.
USC and UCLA will finish up its rivalry series on Sunday. UCLA won the first meeting to open up Pac-12 play in late December, 59-52. Both L.A. schools are 3-2 this year.
Next Monday, January 19, will feature some of the Pac-12’s best, with No. 14 Arizona State at No. 13 Stanford and 13-win Washington at No. 9-ranked Oregon State. Washington begins its week at OREGON. UTAH and COLORADO will have its annual home-and-home series with games in Boulder on Wednesday and in Salt Lake City Saturday.
