Huskies Set For Rematch With Utes In WNIT
March 15, 2012
SEATTLE - The Huskies next opponent in the Women's National Invitational Tournament is now a Pac-12 rematch.
Washington will host conference rival Utah on Sunday at 12 p.m. in the second round of the WNIT, a matchup that was finalized after the Utes defeated Utah State 69-58 on Thursday night at the Huntsman Center. Utes star Taryn Wicijowski led her team with a double-double, totaling 15 points and 11 rebounds.
For the Huskies, this is an opportunity to seek revenge for a 49-36 overtime defeat earlier in the season at Alaska Airlines Arena on Jan. 7. The Utes tied the game on a desperation heave at the buzzer, and then blitzed the Huskies in the extra session to deliver a stinging defeat.
UW advanced to the second round following a 91-72 win over Cal Poly in its WNIT opener. Regina Rogers led all scorers with 27 points and 14 rebounds, while Jazmine Davis shook off a Charley Horse to chip in with 25 points. Rogers missed most of the Huskies previous game with Utah after injuring her hamstring, a contributing factor to the Utes' late rally.
More information on the matchup will be available soon on GoHuskies.com.
