SALT LAKE CITY – The No. 22 Utah women’s basketball wrapped up a homestand hosting the No. 8 Colorado Buffaloes in the Huntsman Center.

The Utes got on track on Super Bowl Sunday against Oregon after a disappointing game against Oregon State a few days earlier and are looking to keep the positive momentum going against the Buffs.

The Utes started fast and never took their foot off the gas racking up a comfortable 39-24 lead going into the locker room against Colorado.

Colorado dug themselves out of their halftime hole, but Utah got the win off a Dasia Young buzzer beater layup, 77-76.

Looking Ahead At The Utah Women’s Basketball Schedule

The Utes will be back on the road again next week heading to Los Angeles to take on two Top-10 teams.

First up Utah will head to Pasadena to take on the No. 9 UCLA Bruins on Thursday, February 22. Tipoff is set for 7:30 pm MT and can be viewed on ESPN.

The Utes will then head down to take on the No. 10 USC Trojans on Sunday, February 25. Tipoff will take place at 1:00 pm MT and will be available on Pac-12 Networks.
