SALT LAKE CITY -- Four Utes scored in double-figures with Julie Krommenhoek tossing in 22 as Utah cruised to a 97-58 exhibition win over Spartak-Moscow on Friday night at the Huntsman Center.
Krommenhoek went 8-for-16 from the field and 4-for-9 from three-point range while dishing out five assists. Sophomore center Kristi Rose had 13 points, eight rebounds and two blocks. Angie Thill had a team-high nine boards and 10 points. Alli Bills had a game-high six assists. Laura Ross Allen and Lindsay Sodja came off the bench to score 12 and 11 points, respectively.
Utah outshot Spartak-Moscow 43.1 to 35.4 percent, and had a 57 to 39 edge on the boards. The Utes led 41-22 at halftime, and outscored Spartak-Moscow 56-36 in the second half.
"We came out apathetic in the first half and it was really an ugly game," said Ute head coach Elaine Elliott. "But, I was much happier with our effort in the second half. We had too many turnovers, but other than that nothing really stood out to me. There were some nice things that I liked seeing after four weeks of practice."
Utah opens the regular season next Friday at Weber State at 5:30 p.m.
