SALT LAKE CITY – The No. 18 Utah women’s basketball is back on the road starting with the No. 12 UCLA Bruins at Pauley Pavilion.

The Utes pulled off a big win last weekend at the Huntsman Center over No. 8 Colorado on a buzzer beater off the glass and now look to keep the momentum going as the regular season winds down into postseason play.

The Utes started the game down 12-0 to UCLA and things never got much better. Turnovers were a big culprit with Utah racking up 11 that led to a 39-25 halftime score in favor of the Bruins.

Turnovers continued to plague the Utes out of the half in addition to poor shooting resulting in an 82-52 win for No.12 UCLA.

Looking Ahead At The Utah Women’s Basketball Schedule

The Utes continue their stay in Los Angeles, this time to take on the No. 7 USC Trojans on Sunday, February 25. Tipoff will take place at 1:00 pm MT and will be available on Pac-12 Networks.
