As Pac-12 Player of the Week Chiney Ogwumike put it, Stanford’s narrow victory over Fresno State last Friday night was a “gut check” for the women’s basketball team, a test that hopefully helped to prepare the Cardinal for the much tougher competition it faces tonight against No. 1 Baylor.
Coming off of two decisive exhibition victories last week, the Stanford women’s basketball team is primed and ready to start the 2012-13 regular season campaign. The No. 4 Cardinal opens the season tonight against the Fresno State Bulldogs hoping to continue its dominance in season openers. It has been a decade since Stanford lost its first game of the year.
