The Oregon women’s basketball team (13-9, 4-7 in Pac-12) hosts the University of Colorado Buffaloes (13-9, 3-8 in Pac-12) Monday, Feb. 10 at Matthew Knight Arena. The game was supposed to be held on Sunday, Feb. 9, but due to the snow and inclement weather the game was rescheduled. Coming off a 93-71 win against the Utah Utes, the Ducks are looking to improve their Pac-12 standing before the start of the Pac-12 tournament on March 6.
