The University of Utah women's basketball team (1-1, 0-0 Mountain West) leaves the state of Utah for the first time this season when it plays in the Oahu Classic in Oahu, Hawaii, Nov. 22-24. Marist, Akron and Nebraska will play Utah in the three-day, non-conference tournament over the Thanksgiving Day holiday.

The Utes, now receiving votes in the AP poll, enter the tournament on the heels of an 81-77 double-overtime loss to the No. 5/5-ranked Stanford Cardinal. It was the first loss for Utah this season.
