GAME #7 RECAP: Montana native Angie Thill led four players scoring in double-figures with 18 points as Utah routed Montana, 65-52, in Dahlberg Arena.

Montana pulled within five points (53-48) with 3:56 remaining in the game on a Lauren Cooper layup. However, the Utes responded with five consecutive points, keyed by a three-pointer from the left wing by Bills, to keep the Lady Griz at bay. Montana outrebounded Utah 38-36, but the Lady Griz committed 19 turnovers and could not shut down the Ute offense, which shot 46 percent from the field.
GAME #6 RECAP: Utah posted a 75-58 rout of Idaho State on Tuesday night in Holt Arena at Pocatello, Idaho. Julie Krommenhoek scored a season-high 29 points to lead the Utes, hitting 10-of-22 shots going and 4-of-9 from behind the three-point arc.

But a Thill layup stopped the Bengals surge, and the Utes pushed their lead back up to 20 with 13:02 to play.
HEAD COACH ELAINE ELLIOTT... is the winningest coach in Utah womens basketball history. Elliott, now in her 15th season as Utahs head coach after spending four years as an assistant coach at the U., could record her 300th career victory this season. She has 288-127 career record and a 138-38 mark in conference games. Her number of career wins and winning percentage (.694) is the best of any coach in the Western Athletic Conference. Her coaching tenure is also the longest among the league coaches. She has had nine 20-win seasons and three 19-win campaigns, averaging 20 wins in the 14 previous years at the U. Elliott was named the WAC Mountain Division Coach of the Year last season after guiding Utah to the Mountain Division title. Utah won the WAC regular-season title under Elliott in 1995-96 and the WAC Tournament championship in 1995. Elliott has coached teams to a total of four regular-season conference crowns (1986, 87, 89, 96), one divisional title (1997) and four league tournament championships (1989, 90, 91, 94). Seven of her teams have advanced to the NCAA Tournament (1986, 89, 90, 91, 95, 96, 97).
ELLIOTT ELABORATES: On the win over Montana - We knew they would come out and play zone, and they did a nice job of keeping Julie (Krommenhoek) in check in the first half. But, our inside players really did a nice job of picking up the scoring, particularly Angie Thill and Laura Ross Allen. We looked tired at times. This was our forth game on the road in nine days. But, we hit some big shots when we had to in order to hold them off late in the game. On the win over Idaho State - That was one we were just happy to get out of the way. We were home less than a day after our trip to Kansas before we had to get on a bus and go to Pocatello in a snow storm. They came at us at 100 percent and we played at about 75 percent. Idaho State committed a lot to the boards, which allowed us some easy baskets in transition. On the Arkansas game - Were excited about the opportunity to play a ranked team on a neutral court. We dont get that kind of an opportunity very often. Its one of those situations where we can just go in and play and have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Theyre very athletic, but were playing some pretty good basketball ourselves right now.
BILLS BREAKS UTAH CAREER ASSISTS RECORD: Senior point guard Alli Bills became the Utes all-time leader in assists, dishing out 10 against Kansas State on Dec. 6 in the championship game of the Commerce Bank Wildcat Classic.
