Utah Heads for Las Vegas Saturday
The University of Utah women's basketball team has won three straight Mountain West Conference games since opening league play 0-2. The Utes own a 12-4 overall record and a 3-2 mark in the MWC.
Utah will be looking for its fourth consecutive victory Saturday night in Las Vegas. The Utes will face the UNLV Rebels at Cox Pavillion. UNLV enters the contest with a record of 11-4 overall and 3-1 in the conference.
UNLV is the first team with a winning conference record that Utah has faced since dropping a last-second, 61-60 decision to BYU back on Jan. 7.
