SALT LAKE CITY - Together with the Salt Lake City Council, Flip the Script and Equality Utah, the University of Utah women's basketball team has launched an anti-bullying campaign for the 2013-14 season.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with the Salt Lake City Council and the Flip the Script organization in promoting their message of anti-bullying," Utah Head Coach Anthony Levrets said. "It's become a growing problem across all communities and should not be tolerated. We're going to do everything we can from our standpoint to help build awareness of the problem and to hopefully be a part of the solution."

When Utah hosts California on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 1 p.m. MT, fans can pledge to help eliminate bullying and gain free admission.
"During our game against Cal, we will partner with Equality Utah to again bring awareness to this problem," Levrets said. "People who come to that game can sign a pledge that they will be a part of the solution by not allowing this activity to happen and to not be a part of that activity."
