SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah women's basketball team beings a four-game stretch on the road on Friday, Jan. 25, at Stanford at 7:00 p.m. PT, and faces California on Sunday, Jan. 27, at 2:00 p.m. PT. The games will mark the second time this year that Utah has faced the Bay Area schools. Stanford and Cal are tied for first in the Pac-12.

The Utes are coming off their first Pac-12 win of the season with a victory against Arizona State on Sunday, 66-46.

"This league is tough," Utah head coach Anthony Levrets said. "In both games [against Cal and Stanford] here we had a chance, especially against Cal the first night. We feel like we match up pretty well with those teams. That doesn't mean that we're thinking that we're going to go out there and walk through them, but we like our team. We feel like if we play well on any given night that we are going to have a chance to win. That's what our kids believe and had believed for a long time. It's good to get a win to get that feeling back. We're going to go out there and compete as hard as we can and see what happens."

Stanford enters the week ranked sixth in the latest Associated Press poll. The Cardinal is 16-2 overall and 5-1 in the Pac-12.

Stanford won the first meeting between the two teams this season on Jan. 4 in the Huntsman Center, 70-56. Utah was within two points, 37-35 with 14:32 remaining before the Cardinal took the lead for good with a 10-2 run.

Utah is 0-15 all-time against Stanford.

California is ranked seventh in the latest AP poll with a 15-2 overall record and a 5-1 record in the Pac-12.

Utah erased a double-digit deficit twice in its first meeting against Cal, coming within four points three times in the final three minutes before falling 55-50.

Cal leads the all-time series against the Utes, 8-4.
