Now they turn their attention to Arizona, but will have to see how things go after the team was affected by food poisoning.
Earlier in the week, head coach Lynne Roberts said she wanted to see her team show more urgency. Battling through sickness should be another good test for the Utes.
“I think the loss at Colorado got in people’s heads,” Roberts said. “We’ve got a lot- even though we are returning everybody, it doesn’t feel like it’s the same team. We’re down two starters and missing 31 points a game from Issy and G. We’ve got to play with some urgency. Our margin for error has gotten smaller. Me, just reminding them whether it’s friendly or not- get your butts moving. Like, you either want to win and cut down a net, or you don’t. Tell me now if you don’t because I’ll try to chill out. Probably not though.”
