No. 8 Colorado hitting the road for matchup at No. 22 Utah

The No. 8 Colorado women’s basketball team must shake off an ugly loss on its home court to the Oregon State Beavers, as the No. 22 Utah Utes are set to host the Buffs on Friday evening.

While the Buffaloes (20-4, 10-3 Pac-12) did not look good against Oregon State, Colorado has followed each of its three prior losses this season with a win, so Utah (18-7, 8-5 Pac-12) should beware.

Friday’s game in Salt Lake City will feature an impressive battle in the paint as CU’s Aaronette Vonleh and Quay Miller will be tasked with slowing down Utah’s Alissa Pili and Jenna Johnson. Pili has exploded this season with averages of 21.7 points and 5.8 rebounds on 56.8% shooting from the field, including 40.4% from deep. Johnson does her best work on the glass, leading the Utes with 6.3 rebounds per game while chipping in 10.1 points.

The game will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network with tipoff set for 6 p.m. MT.
