ASU women overwhelmed by Utah

SALT LAKE CITY -- The Arizona State women's basketball team dropped its second consecutive game Sunday night, falling to Utah 66-46.
 
Joy Burke led the Sun Devils (10-8, 2-4 Pac-12) with 10 points while Promise Amukamara added eight.
 
Michelle Plouffe (18 points), Taryn Wicijowski (16 points) and Iwalani Rodrigues (16 points) combined for 50 points for the Utes (10-7, 1-5 Pac-12), who shot 55 percent for the game.
 
The Sun Devils led by as many as seven in the first half, but they could not sustain their advantage, and the Utes fought back to lead 29-24 at the half.
 
Like in Friday's game at Colorado, ASU struggled in the second half, shooting only 30 percent from the floor while being outscored 37-22.
 
The Sun Devils continue their current four-game road trip next week when they travel to Los Angeles to take on USC on Friday and UCLA on Sunday.
