Buffaloes, Utes on tap for women’s basketball

The No.6 ranked Stanford’s women’s basketball team is currently a dominant force no one wants to reckon with, and they look to wreak havoc this weekend against two more Pac-12 foes. Coming off a weekend in which they beat Washington and Washington State by a combined score of 176- 118, the Cardinal (16-1, 6-0 PAC-12) look to extend their 10 game winning streak by two this weekend as they hit the road to face Utah and Colorado.
