SALT LAKE CITY – The No. 20 Utah women’s basketball team wrapped up hosting the Oregon schools with the Ducks on Super Bowl Sunday.

The Utes had another disappointing performance against the No. 17 Oregon Beavers Friday night that they needed to recover from. Both head coach Lynne Roberts and Alissa Pili maintained after the game they were determined to stick together and hopefully figure it out against Oregon.

The Utes got off to a good start posting a 35-23 advantage over the Ducks in the first half of the game.

Utah continued to build momentum into the second half putting them in a position to walk away with the win, 70-48 over the Ducks.

Looking Ahead At The Utah Women’s Basketball Schedule

Utah will remain at home next week hosting the No. 4 Colorado Buffaloes on Friday, February 16. Tipoff is set for 6:00 pm MT and can be viewed on Pac-12 Networks.
