Stanford, UConn in women’s basketball showdown


Stanford and UConn usually have a lot on the line when the two women’s basketball powers play. While there are no major streaks or Final Four wins at stake tonight in Storrs, Conn. (4 p.m., ESPN2), this early-season matchup between the top-ranked Huskies and No. 3 Cardinal still has a lot of intrigue. “They’re the standard right now in women’s basketball,” Stanford forward Chiney Ogwumike said. “Everyone expects them to repeat, and we’re just up there trying to compete. We’re excited. We don’t back down. I think that’s the No. 1 thing I’m telling my team. Don’t back down. Be aggressive.” – Associated Press
