NOTES: CU is looking to snap a three-game losing streak…This will be the Buffs’ third consecutive match against a top-15 team following losses last week at No. 11 USC and No. 3 UCLA…Hopcroft is the 10th CU player to collect at least seven assists in a season. With at least six games remaining, she has a chance to join Anne Stuller (eight in 2013), Kathryn Grandinetti (nine in 2003), and Taylor Kornieck (10 in 2018) as the only Buffs players with at least eight assists in a season…The Buffs are 0-12 all-time against Stanford but nearly ended that winless spring in March during the delayed 2020 season, as the Cardinal needed a goal in the 88th minute to prevail 2-1…This will be the first of three consecutive home games for the Buffs, who host Oregon on Thursday (3 p.m.).
