Michigan Looks To Pull Off Upset Of No. 1 Stanford

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- The Michigan women's basketball players are close pals with the Wolverines volleyball team -- the group that traveled West in December and reached the Final Four by ending Stanford's season.
Kim Barnes Arico's underdog, senior-led group is seeking a similar upset Tuesday night, when the eighth-seeded Wolverines (22-10) face top-seeded Stanford (32-2) on its home court in Maples Pavilion for a place in the Spokane Regional semifinals Saturday.
Barnes Arico is plenty familiar with the Cardinal, who routed her St. John's team 75-49 in a surprisingly lopsided second-round loss at Maples two years ago.
And the task this time is just as daunting. Stanford has won 18 straight games, is 27-4 at home in the NCAA tournament and riding a seven-game unbeaten run on its own floor in tournament play.
