No. 21 CU Buffs women’s basketball ready for Thursday afternoon matchup with No. 3 Stanford
Although they’re already guaranteed a top-four seed and a first-round bye in the upcoming Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament, the No. 21 Buffs still have their biggest game of the regular season on tap with No. 3 Stanford coming to the CU Events Center on Thursday.
Beating the Cardinal — and Cal on Saturday — would put the Buffs in prime position to host in the NCAA Tournament. And as someone who covered Colorado’s upset of then-No. 1 Stanford back in 2021, this game means more than just a win or a loss.
“We are going to do whatever it takes to win,” senior Quay Miller said. “Last year, we depended on a few players and when they did not show up, we did not know what to do. This year we are all trying to take over and whoever has the hot hand we will just keep feeding this person.”
The Buffs enter Thursday at 21-6 overall and 12-4 in Pac-12 play, while Stanford, which reached the Final Four last year, sits 26-3 (14-2 Pac-12).
Tipoff is Thursday at 3 p.m. MT on the Pac-12 Network.
