Utah women's basketball will get one more shot to redeem a season that fell short of expectations.
The Utes (16-15) earned a second straight berth to the WNIT, where they will host UC Davis (23-7), the winner of the Big West and an automatic qualifier. The game, which does not yet have a tipoff time, will be Friday at the Huntsman Center.
Utah finished tied for ninth in the Pac-12 and was one of three conference teams selected, along with Colorado and Washington State. Seven other conference teams were chosen to go to the NCAA Tournament on Monday afternoon.
The Utes are in the hunt for a finish more in line with the season's start: They were 11-0 against nonconference opponents before hitting turbulence in conference play.
