The University of Utah women's basketball team erased an early five-point deficit by outscoring Arizona 13-2 over a four-minute span en route to a 91-74 victory at the Times Wahine Classic, Saturday.
Utah, which saw a 10-point halftime lead disappear in Friday's 79-77 loss to Western Kentucky, never allowed Arizona to come closer than 10 points in the second half and led by as many as 19.Karen Alcorn led the Ute scorers for the second night in a row, connecting for 21 points. But it was the two areas head Ute coach Elaine Elliott predicted would determine Utah's success this season that clinched the victory.
Point guard Melanee Brooks- McQueen and center Tanya Zachary, both whom played sub-par games against Western Kentucky, dominated the Wildcats. Brooks-McQueen scored 12 points and dished off five assists, while Zachary powered up 17 points and led the Utes with nine rebounds.
