Here's the press release from UT Athletics Media Relations: (full link)

Utah Tech will host the first of two opponents from the state of Texas this week as the Trailblazers continue their four-game homestand on Thursday night against Abilene Christian.

Utah Tech fell to 10-19 against its fellow Beehive State opponents in the program's NCAA era following last Saturday's loss to Utah Valley. That mark includes an 8-9 record in in-state rivalry games during the team's current Division I transition.

Utah Tech is playing game No. 3 of 11 against teams from the Lone Star State this season, and is still looking to break through with its first win against a Texas opponent.

The Trailblazers dropped an 84-75 road decision at Texas A&M-Commerce (11/20/23) just before Thanksgiving, and came out on the short end of a 76-67 result at Stephen F. Austin (1/11/24) two weeks ago.

Utah Tech and ACU are currently the only two teams in the WAC featuring four players averaging double figures in points through this point of the season.

In fact, Utah Tech is the only team in the WAC with three players listed in the conference's top-10 in both scoring (4. Breaunna Gillen 15.8 ppg; 5. Macie Warren 15.3; 7. Maddie Warren 14.9 ppg) and field goal percentage (3. Mac. Warren .503; 6. Gillen .466; 8. Mad. Warren .415).

OPENING TIP: Utah Tech (9-9/3-4 WAC) returns to the Burns Arena floor this Thursday night to host Abilene Christian (8-8/4-3 WAC) in a key Western Athletic Conference duel. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. (MT).
