• The second half of league play is underway and teams will be vying for positioning in the Pac-12 standings as the Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament in Seattle approaches. No. 6/7 OREGON sits at the top and is looking for its first regular-season crown since 2000.
• Looking to catch the Ducks is STANFORD, which finds itself back in the Associated Press’ top 25, coming in at No. 24. The Cardinal is one game back of the Ducks heading into the week with the teams playing in Eugene on Sunday on ESPN2.
• Stanford travels to No. 16/16 OREGON STATE first for its crucial matchup of the week on Friday. The Beavs are one game back of the Cardinal and two behind UO. No. 25 CALIFORNIA is also traveling to Oregon and OSU, going into the week just three games back of the Conference lead. All four teams can be found on Pac-12 Networks this week.
• Five league teams are in the AP poll, UCLA joining the Ducks in the top 10 at No. 9 to round out the five teams in the top 25 this week. The Bruins are also ninth in the USA Today/WBCA Coaches poll giving the Conference three teams in that polling. ARIZONA STATE is receiving votes.
