This weekend in Denver, see Colorado women's basketball in action, attend an all-denim party or plan your wedding at the area's biggest bridal show.

๐Ÿ€ 1. Colorado WBB vs. UCLA & USC

The Colorado women's basketball team is set to host two ranked opponents from Los Angeles.

  • The No. 3-ranked Buffaloes (15โ€“1) face No. 5 UCLA (14โ€“1) and No. 6 USC (13โ€“1) this weekend in Boulder.

Why it matters: Wins for Colorado will keep them atop the Pac-12 standings and boost their argument for being the top-ranked team in the country.

Between the lines: The Buffs, led by Aaronette Vonleh and Jaylyn Sherrod, are the only undefeated team in Pac-12 play with convincing conference victories over No. 8 Stanford and No. 20 Utah.

The intrigue: This could be your chance to see USC Trojans guard JuJu Watkins play in person. The freshman is one of the biggest stars in college basketball.
