    Utes earn share of Mountain West with 19th straight victory

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Kalee Whipple had 19 points, 10 rebounds and four steals to help Utah (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 16 AP) beat TCU 68-53 Wednesday night and earn at least a share of the Mountain West title with its 19th win in a row.

    Morgan Warburton also had 19 points and Leilani Mitchell finished with 14 points, seven assists and five steals for Utah (23-3, 12-0), which won its fifth Mountain West title in nine seasons and hasn't lost since a 62-45 setback at USC on Dec. 3.

    Lori Butler-Rayford scored 14 points to lead TCU (17-10, 10-3), which had won five straight road games and seven in a row overall. Adrianne Ross scored 13 for the Horned Frogs.

    After halftime, TCU got within five points before Warburton and Whipple made two 3-pointers in a 16-4 run to increase Utah's lead to 51-34 with 12:00 left. TCU never recovered.

    Both teams started slow to begin the game, but Utah went on a 19-4 run and took a 35-25 lead at halftime.
