Utah plays conference rival Colorado for the second time this week on Sunday, Jan. 13, at 3:00 p.m. MT. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.

In the past, teams would play their conference rival and travel partner on two different weekends, but the conference has condensed the schedule and moved the Pac-12 Tournament up a week.

After playing three games in five days, the Utes took a couple of days off and will return to practice on Friday.

"We're in class right now, so (we will) get back to class and then practice on Friday and implement a game plan that we feel like will give us the best chance to win," Utah head coach Anthony Levrets said.

Last Time Out
Three players scored in double figures as the Utah fell to 23rd-ranked Colorado on Tuesday, 67-57.

Taryn Wicijowski led Utah with a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds while Michelle Plouffe also scored 17 points. Iwalani Rodrigues tallied 12 points with five boards.

The Utes (9-5, 0-3 Pac-12) took an early 9-2 lead in the game through the first 3:30 in the contest, but trailed at halftime, 32-31, after Colorado closed out the first half with a 10-1 run.

Utah started the second half strong, but a 20-3 run for Colorado doomed the Utes in the half. Although Utah held Colorado without a field goal through the final 5:58 of the contest, the Buffs made 9-of-10 free throws down the stretch.
