Michelle Plouffe leads Utah with 18 points.
Utah returns four starters from last year's team.
Levrets on Arquette: "Nakia is coming off an injury. Obviously, the biggest thing for her is getting healthy. When she is, the strength of her game playing the 4 position is her ability to stretch the defense and shoot the basketball. She plays the game with a very high IQ and we expect her to be a big contributor to our team when she's healthy."
Fast Breaks: Great shooter and cutter with an ability to stretch defenses.
