There’s no doubt she loved the game. She put in as much time working on her craft as anyone, including late-night sessions at the gym, with hard work in the weight room as well. But the WNBA was a pipe dream to her. She watched her favorite players on television and all. But being raised in Canada, all she could see is what was directly in front of her. A college basketball career in Utah. “I honestly didn...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

If only he and the Utes had a choice in the matter. If the Utes had Plouffe returning, they’d surely be a force to reckon with in the Pac-12 next season since Taryn Wicijowski (ACL) and Paige Crozon (concussion) return for the Utes.

From the sounds of it, the Utes are going to be spending a lot more time on the subject. Just as it grew in the NBA and in college men’s basketball, the pick-and-roll is taking over in the women’s game, Utah coach Anthony Levrets said. “Every team seems like it’s going to it,” he said. “It’s hard to guard and there are so many players now who are really good wi...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Utes were supposed to play in the afternoon, but their game was moved to an 8:30 p.m. (local) start since it was against Washington. Before the season, the Pac-12 coaches voted unanimously to let Washington State and Washington play in the final games so more local fans could attend. “It was a good move...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Utes hoped, as star player Michelle Plouffe put it, to play well enough that they could feel better about themselves. Mission accomplished. The Utes (12-18) upset the home town team Thursday 65-53 at KeyArena. Utah advances to play third-seeded Oregon State Friday at 9:30 p.m. in a game televised by the Pac-12 networks.

Players made the correct cuts through the lane. Passes were pinpoint. Coach Anthony Levrets smiled as his sets created open shot after open shot. He hung his head when those open shots clanged off the rim. The Utes lost another frustrating game on Thursday night at the Huntsman Center, this one a 67-57 decision at the hands of USC.
