    After a close win against BYU on Wednesday, the Lady Frogs hope to improve their conference record to 6-0 when they take on Utah Saturday night in Salt Lake City.

    The Lady Frogs are currently in first place in the Mountain West Conference standings after a 54-51 victory over BYU.

    The Lady Frogs are the only undefeated team left in the Mountain West Conference while also staying undefeated overall in 2011.

    TCU also have the best overall record in the conference at 13-6.

    The Lady Frogs are only three games away from finishing the first round of conference play undefeated.

    After TCU’s win against BYU, senior forward Helena Sverrisdottir said the Lady Frogs were still not playing their best in the game.

    The last time the Lady Frogs took on the Utes, the teams met in last year’s Mountain West Championship game. The Utes defeated TCU, 69-57.

    The Utes are currently 3-2 in conference play, and 10-9 overall.

    The Utes played New Mexico Wednesday night and also came out with a narrow win, beating the Lobos, 56-53.

    TCU’s top two shooters, senior guard Emily Carter and Sverrisdottir are ranked fifth and ninth respectively, in the conference in scoring.

    Utah`s top two shooters, sophomore guard Iwalani Rodrigues and junior guard Janita Badon, hold the second and third spots in the conference, respectively, in scoring. The game between the Lady Frogs and the Utes will air at 7 p.m. on CBS College Sports.
