    Utah was trailing 10-7 before going ahead 16-7 on its 9-0 run that ended with 13:00 remaining. Warburton, Katie King and Whipple each scored three points during that run.

    UNLV's 9-0 run occurred after Utah had taken its biggest lead of the first half at 27-14. The Lady Rebels narrowed the margin to 27-23 with 3:20 left, when Holmes finished that run with a three-point play.
