Knoxville, TN – The Tennessee Lady Vols, off to their best start since 2007-08, will travel to Maples Pavilion to take on the Stanford Lady Cardinal in battle of top ten teams.
Tennessee enters the contest on the heels of a 51 point blowout win over Tennessee State, 94-43, and will be playing its final contest before the holiday break.
Stanford comes into the game with a 9-1 record after defeating New Mexico by 34 points on Monday night, 75-41. This is Stanford’s final game before the break as well.

The Lady Vols are hoping to end a three-game losing skid at Maples Pavilion and secure their first victory at Stanford since Dec. 4, 2005. On that date, #2/1 Tennessee triumphed, 74-67, vs. the #12/11 Cardinal.
Tennessee enters Saturday’s game with a 10-game winning streak, and Stanford has been a stopper of two sizeable season-opening sprees and a shorter streak in the Lady Vols’ last three visits to Maples Pavilion.
The Big Orange women are chasing after their first road victory over a top-five-ranked squad since taking down #5/5 Connecticut in Hartford on Jan. 6th, 2007, 70-64.
The Pac-12 Networks will televise the contest, with Krista Blunk (play-by-play), Mary Murphy (color analyst) and Ashley Adamson (sideline reporter) describing the action.
