Big weekend wraps up regular season

This is a big weekend for the top four teams in the conference. Oregon State is playing at Stanford and Cal. Arizona State is playing at USC and UCLA.

OSU and ASU are currently tied for first place at 15-1. OSU has the edge for tournament seeding, because they handed ASU their only conference loss of the season.

Stanford and UCLA are tied for third place at 12-4. UCLA has the edge for tournament seeding, because they defeated Stanford.

So, expect nothing less than A+ games this weekend from these four teams as they fight for honor, glory, and a chance to host the NCAA first and second rounds:

The Cardinal has an additional incentive to win this weekend — the opportunity to claim its 1,000th win in program history.

Stanford's record currently sits at 999-310 and with one more win the program will join an exclusive list. Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, James Madison, Old Dominion, Texas and Stephen F. Austin are currently the only Division I institutions with 1,000 victories. Stanford will be the third-fastest to reach the mark, behind Louisiana Tech (1,210) and Tennessee (1,232) in games played.
