WOMEN’S BASKETBALL HOSTS FACULTY/STAFF APPRECIATION

By Kyle Harris, University of Utah Athletics

Receive free admission and stay after the game so your kids can shoot a basket with the University of Utah women’s basketball team at the Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day game. The game is this Thursday, Feb. 4 at 6 p.m. against Colorado in the Jon M. Huntsman Center.

All University of Utah faculty and staff members will receive up to six free tickets to the Colorado game. Faculty and staff can learn how to claim their free tickets by clicking on “Faculty/Staff Discounts” under the “Tickets” tab at UtahTickets.com or they can enter for free by simply showing their UCard at the ticket office prior to entry.

It will also be the team’s annual Power of Pink game so fans can gain free admission by wearing pink.

Utah has been impressive this season under first-year Head Coach Lynne Roberts. The team has a record of 12-7 overall and has a 4-4 mark in Pac-12 Conference play. With the support of its fan base at home, the Utes are 9-2 in the Huntsman Center this season.

Be loud and proud as the Utah women’s basketball team looks to revitalize its home-court advantage. “It’s universal that you play a little bit better at home,” Roberts said. “You have your own fans at the game, sleep in your own bed, shooting on the rims that you shoot on every day. There are just a lot of those types of variables.”

Following the game Thursday night, kids can go down to the court, interact with the team, get autographs and shoot a basket.

There are only three more regular-season home games left so get involved in the excitement and come out and support the team and new coach Roberts.
