Utah Women’s Basketball Remain Steady In Latest AP Top 25

Dec 11, 2023, 11:02 AM

SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Utes women’s basketball team stayed put in the latest AP Top 25 after handling business against St. Joseph’s and coming up short to No. 1 South Carolina on the road.

The Utes continue to stay in solid position with plenty of opportunities to gradually move back up the AP Top 25 ranks in the future.

Utah is joined by four other conference mates in the latest AP Poll – UCLA, Colorado, Stanford, and USC, setting up what will likely be another great year of women’s hoops in the last year of the Pac-12.

Utah ended the 2022-23 season as the 8th team in the AP Poll after coming off of a Pac-12 title and a Sweet 16 appearance where they lost to the eventual champion LSU Tigers.

The Utes look to improve and make even more noise in 2024 appearing to be off to a good start based on where they continue to reside within the AP Top 25 early in the season.

Where Does Utah Women’s Basketball Rank In The AP Top 25?

Utah started the year ranked No. 5 in the preseason AP Top 25 Poll.

The Utes moved up to No. 4 after dominant performances against Mississippi Valley State and South Carolina State but dropped down to No. 10 after their first loss of the season to a ranked Baylor team.

Utah bounced back in road with a trip up to Alaska for the Great Alaska Shootout where they posted triple-digit scores in both nights they competed. 

Utah came back home the following week and posted a 98-34 win over Merrimack, but instead of moving up, the Utes dropped two more spots to No. 12.

Last week, Utah moved one spot, to No. 11 in the latest AP Top 25 which is where they remain this week.

Utah will continue their road tour this weekend, heading south to take on Southern Utah in Cedar City. Tipoff for that game is 5:00 pm MT and can be viewed on ESPN+.
