Maples Pavilion today will host easily its biggest game this season when the No. 2/2 Connecticut women’s basketball team square up against No. 1/1 Stanford in the Cardinal’s final contest of 2012.
With a 73-60 win over Tennessee in Knoxville, the Stanford women’s basketball team closed out a successful two-game visit to the East Coast on Saturday. The road trip cemented the team’s position at the top of the national rankings, with wins over the No. 10 and No. 21 schools, Tennessee and South Carolina, respectively.
Living up to its brand-new No. 1 ranking, the Stanford women’s basketball team routed Long Beach State 77-41 at Maples Pavilion yesterday. The win capped a perfect Thanksgiving break for the team, which also swept Baylor, Hawai’i and Tennessee-Martin a week ago to win the Jack in the Box Rainbow Wahine Classic and take the top-spot in the rankings from the Bears.
