The Utah women’s basketball team defeated Colorado 76-61 in a Pac-12 opener on Sunday in Boulder, Colorado, improving to 12-0 on the season.

Freshman Andrea Torres led the Utes with a career-high 18 points off the bench, going 7 for 11 from the floor, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range. Megan Huff recorded her sixth double-double of the season, with 13 points and 13 rebounds. Dre’Una Edwards added 14 points, and Dru Gylten scored 10 for Utah.

“I was really proud of our team because this is a really tough place to play,” Utah coach Lynne Roberts said. “I think defensively we were really good. We contained them. They are a good team and they are going to score, but I thought we were locked in. We have a lot of respect for them. They are a good team, so this is a good win for us.”

After a seesaw first quarter, the Utes took a 41-35 lead into halftime, going 8 for 11 from 3-point range in the first half.

Alexis Robinson scored 14 points to lead Colorado (10-2).

Utah will host Arizona State on Friday (7 p.m.), and Arizona Jan. 6 (noon) in Pac-12 games.
