SALT LAKE CITY -- Julie Krommenhoek scored a season-high 24 points and set an arena single-game record with six three-pointers as Utah handled Bradley, 86-42, on Saturday afternoon at the Jon M. Huntsman Center.
The 44-point win for the Utes was the most decisive since Utah beat New Mexico by 52 points (86-34) on March 5, 1992.
Krommenhoek, who went 9-for-17 from the floor and 6-for-9 from three-point range in 30 minutes of play, broke Andrea Herold's JMHC record of five three-pointers in a game set against Fresno State on Feb. 24, 1994.
Angie Thill posted her second double-double in as many nights with 15 points and 12 boards. Alli Bills also scored 15 points, going 3-for-3 from behind the arc, and had a game-high eight assists in 29 minutes. Lindsay Sodja scored 11 points on 5-of-6 six shooting in nine minutes off the bench.
"Julie just got in a zone like she can sometimes," said Ute head coach Elaine Elliott. "This year, however, we have really good support around her. She doesn't have to get 25 every night for us to win.
"We did a really good job of taking away Bradley's strengths," Elliott continued. "I was also happy with the way our bench played. I told them that I expected the same out of them as our starters. They put together a nice run when they came in."
The Braves were within 27-16 with 5:33 left in the first half before the Utes went on a 15-2 run to end the half. Bills made a three-pointer and a 16-foot jumper as a part of the run.
Bradley falls to 3-2 with the loss. Utah is 3-0, heading off an a five-game road swing beginning next weekend at Kansas State's Commerce Bank-Wildcat Classic.
