Tucson, Ariz. • The Utah women’s basketball team shot just 30-percent from the floor in its 66-55 loss at Arizona on Friday night, falling to 18-6 overall and 7-6 in Pac-12 play.
Utah was just 19-of-64 from the floor against the Wildcats, its lowest shooting percentage this season. The Utes were able to take care of the ball with only 10 turnovers, but were out-rebounded and out-scored in the paint despite Dre’Una Edwards putting up a team-high 21 points.
The Las Vegas, Nev., native was 8-of-17 from the floor for her second straight 20-point game, also pulling in 10 rebounds for her seventh double-double of the season.
Freshman Andrea Torres added nine points with Erika Bean contributing eight rebounds, five assists and a career-high tying five steals.
“I thought defensively we did what we needed to do to win, but offensively we just couldn’t make shots,” Utah coach Lynne Roberts said. “The consistency that has been there all season, wasn’t there today. It is hard to win on the road shooting 30-percent, it is impossible. We didn’t turn it over, we rebounded well and I thought we got good looks, we just didn’t have it offensively. We didn’t make shots.”
