Coming off of a Pac-12 title and a Sweet 16 appearance, the Utes look to improve and make even more noise in 2024.

Utah Women’s Basketball Receive Pac-12 Title Rings Before Season
Utah women’s basketball had a historic run in the 2022-23 season that was capped off with their first-ever Pac-12 Title and now they have the hardware to show for it.
It took a few months, but the Utes finally got their rings just in time to start their 2023-24 season. Needless to say, there were some happy faces about it too.
Recently, Utah women’s basketball was voted by Pac-12 media and coaches as the preseason favorite to finish the conference in first place. That is a pretty impressive climb for the program from where they were just a few short years ago.

Lynne Roberts and crew will be tipping off what looks to be a very promising 2023-24 campaign this Wednesday after having some fun at Pac-12 Media Day last week.
