LADY UTE HOOPSTERS BOW TO CREIGHTON

SHARE LADY UTE HOOPSTERS BOW TO CREIGHTON

The University of Utah women's basketball team was as cold from the Civic Center floor as the frosty below zero temperature reading in outdoor Omaha, Friday, and the consequence was a 69-64 loss to Creighton. Utah went into the game with the chance to move into a tie for first in the WAC with the Lady Jays, but a 38-percent shooting night left the Utes in second, with a 6-3 league record (15-9 overall). Creighton, 8-2 in the WAC, was held well below its league-leading 84.8 ppg scoring average, but shot a respectable 48-percent to hold off the Utes. Karen Alcorn (21 points), Mikki Kane (14 points) and Kelly Shaheen (10 points) accounted for most of Utah's points.
