STORY LINES
• No. 15/16 UCLA (19-5, 10-3 Pac-12) hosts another top 10 team on Sunday when No. 4/5 Stanford (23-2, 12-1) visits Pauley Pavilion for a nationally televised game on ESPNU. The Bruins and the Cardinal will tip-off at 12:35 p.m.

• After posting two road wins last week at Washington (65-61) and Washington State (80-65), the UCLA Bruins moved up two spots to No. 15 in the AP Top 25 Poll and one spot to No. 16 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. UCLA moved up three spots to No. 12 in the NCAA Women's Basketball RPI (NCAA.com). The Bruins have been ranked at least one week in both polls in each of the past four seasons.

• This is the 75th meeting between UCLA and Stanford with the Cardinal leading the series 52-22. Stanford has won the last 14 meetings overall. Stanford posted a lop-sided win at the Wooden Center in Los Angeles last year, defeating the Bruins 77-50 on Dec. 31, 2011. Both of the Ogwumike sisters had double-doubles with Nnemkadi posting 18 points and 10 rebounds and Chiney adding 15 points and 11 boards to lead the Cardinal. Rebekah Gardner led UCLA with 17 points and six rebounds. In this year's earlier meeting in the Bay Area, Chiney Ogwumike had 25 points and 13 rebounds to lead No. 6 Stanford past No. 14 UCLA 75-49 on Jan. 18, 2013. Joslyn Tinkle added 16 points and Amber Orrange had 15 for the Cardinal. Alyssia Brewer scored 14 points to lead the Bruins. Thea Lemberger added 12 points and Atonye Nyingifa had 11 for the Bruins, which were held to a season-low 49 points on a season-low 31.4 percent from the field (16-for-51). Stanford also became the first team to shoot better than 50 percent against the Bruins (52.9 percent, 27-for-51 from the floor).

DAD'S AND DAUGHTER'S GAME
The Bruins will host their 4th Annual Dad's & Daughter's Day this Sunday, Feb. 17 in conjunction with the game against No. 4 Stanford in Pauley Pavilion. Dad's and Daughter's Day consists of a pre-game fair with family-friendly activities that lead into the highly anticipated matchup between the Bruins and the Cardinal. This year, the fair will look a bit different than years past as it has moved inside the confines of Pauley. With games, player autographs, face painting, a photo station and Bruin mascots roaming around the pre-game fair, it will be a great start to a fun-filled and spirited day for Bruin families. Tickets for this event are still available. A $10 package includes a game ticket, a Dad's and Daughter's commemorative t-shirt and admission to the pre-game fair. For more information on the event click here. Purchase your tickets online in advance or in person on Sunday morning at Southeast Pauley Pavilion just outside the fair's entrance.
