Preview of Stanford road game vs Buffalo on Friday, December 21


After huge wins against 3rd ranked Baylor and 9th ranked Tennessee, the Cardinal head to New York
to play the 7-2 Buffalo Bulls women's basketball team which plays in the MAC conference.

 In November, the UB women lost a road game to then 3rd ranked Oregon 102-82 which shows they can be competitive with elite teams.

Senior Cierra Dillard shown on the left, a 5' 9" guard from Massachusetts, is averaging an impressive 25.8 points per game while shooting almost 40% from 3-point range.  She averages 5.7 rebounds per game and is shooting 83.9% from the foul line while playing 37 minutes per game.

Here's a link to the Buffalo fan website including a preseason preview of a talented freshman, Zena Ellis --- https://www.ubbullrun.com/womens-basketball/2018/10/19/17994378/2018-19-buffalo-womens-basketball-previews-zena-elias.

Their top attendance for a home game against Niagra was 1,636 fans.  No doubt they will draw many more again Stanford.
