Ute women to face No. 23 Colorado St.

SHARE Ute women to face No. 23 Colorado St.

During Utah's domination of Mountain West Conference women's basketball the past two years, the Utes' main rival has been Colorado State.

But in each of the past two seasons, the Utes have crushed the Rams when the two teams met at the Huntsman Center, 77-52 in 2000 and 73-51 last year.

The Utes aren't expecting a similar game when they take on the Rams today at 3:30 p.m. in the Huntsman Center, right after the Ute men play UNLV.

Colorado State (12-3) is the preseason MWC favorite and has been ranked in the Top 25 most of the season, currently ranking 23rd. After starting out 10-1, the Rams recently dropped two straight games.
