Utah vs. BYU: Another one makes it to tomorrow

By Lara Boyko - March 09, 2007


After claiming the regular-season title, BYU just gave themselves the opportunity to also earn the MWC tournament title with their 55-49 win.

Sure the Cougars had to fend off that enormous Utah run and avoid a total meltdown themselves, but every foul and Wright's cut on the chin from a foul, all seem to be worth it right now.

Wright led all BYU scores with 14 points, but with teammates Gillespie (13 points and nine rebounds) and Johnsen (12 points) right behind her, the Cougars were too much for Utah tonight.

Utah also had three players in double digits (Whipple, Filipe and Warner), but considering they shot a mere 31% as a team compared to BYU's 42% shooting, it just wasn't in the cards for the Utes today.

BYU heads into the finals facing New Mexico tomorrow at 2 pm.
