Sunday night takes us out west for some Pac 12 action as the Stanford Cardinal will play the Arizona Wildcats here in this one. This should be one of the best games of a reduced top 25 slate here on Sunday as they get ready to close out the week and head into the first full week of February. Both of these teams look to pick up a crucial victory here in this one as they look to further add to their résumé with only one full month left in the regular season before the conference tournament and the NCAA tournament start. Both of these teams come into this game with a winning record and both of them will look to leave this game with a huge win here on Sunday night. As both Stanford and Arizona look to further established themselves as a legitimate threat to win the Pac 12 this season.
It has been a bit of a roller coaster season for Stanford as they come into this game, slightly hovering above the .500 mark through their first 20 games of the year. As they come into this game with 11 victories through their first 20 games of the season, they will look to pick up a much-needed 12th victory here on Sunday night on the road against one of the top teams in the country. A victory in this game over Arizona would be a massive building block on their résumé and put them as one of the more favorable bubble teams as we inch closer to the Pac 12 conference tournament. If they can finish the season on a strong run, they will keep their hopes alive of potentially making the NCAA tournament, and that starts with picking up a huge victory here on Sunday night on the road against Arizona.
At this point in the year this feels like a must win game for Stanford if they want to firmly establish themselves as a potential at-large team for the NCAA tournament heading into the final full month of the regular season. Stanford is barely floating above water in conference play, winning six out of their first 10 conference games and they will look to grab a seventh conference victory here and this one as well. Their downfall this season has been their lackluster defense as they are giving up around 75 points per game, and they will be playing one of the best offenses in the country here in this one which could prove to be a disaster for Stanford here on Sunday night in Arizona.
