Husky women get Utah rematch
The UW women found out Thursday night that they will get a rematch with Utah, which beat the Huskies in the lone meeting in Seattle on Jan. 7, this Sunday afternoon at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. The second-round game of the Women's National Invitational Tournament has a scheduled tip-off at noon.
Utah shocked the Huskies (18-14) with a 49-26 overtime win at UW in January. The Utes made just one field goal through the first 19-plus minutes of the second half before Janita Badon's 3-pointer in the final seconds helped send the game to overtime. Utah (16-15) went on to dominate UW in the overtime session.
The Utes beat Utah State 69-58 in a WNIT game Thursday night. Afterward, the tournament announced that UW would get to host Utah this Sunday at noon.
The Huskies cruised past Cal Poly 90-71 in their WNIT opener Wednesday night.
After Wednesday's win, UW freshman Jazmine Davis said of the Jan. 7 loss to Utah: "We definitely have not forgotten about that one."
