Pac-12 Announces Women’s Basketball Conference Weekly Pairings
SAN FRANCISCO – The Pac-12 Conference has released the weekly matchups and site designations for the league's 2022-23 women's basketball season. The University of Utah women's basketball team is coming off an NCAA Tournament appearance last year.
During the 2021-22 season, head coach Lynne Roberts led the Utes to a 21-win season for the first time since 2018-19, and the 29th 20-win season in program history. The Utes advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2011 after making an incredible run in the Pac-12 tournament, winning three games in three nights to earn a spot in championship game for the first time in program history.
Utah was the highest-scoring team in the Pac-12 (17th NCAA), averaging 75.9 points per game, which is the fourth-highest figure in school history and the highest since 1980-81. Utah also led the Pac-12 in three-pointers made (7th NCAA; school-record 312), three-point attempts (7th NCAA; 876), assists per game (39th NCAA; 15.3), free throws made (18th NCAA; 469), and free throw attempts (43rd NCAA; 602).
Specific dates and times for each game will be announced after television selections are finalized. Some games may shift outside of the Conference's traditional Friday-Sunday windows pending those television selections and other factors.
The Pac-12 has more live linear television exposure than any other D1 conference in the country between broadcasts on the Pac-12 Networks and the ESPN family of networks.
The Utes open Pac-12 play at home on Dec. 14 when they host Colorado. Following the Colorado contest, Utah returns to non-conference action until the week of Dec. 29 to Jan. 2, when they hit the road to face Washington State and Washington.
