Tulsa, Oklahoma - The Tulsa women's basketball team returns home to host Utah Valley on Thursday, November 29th beginning at 7:00 pm at the Donald W. Reynolds Center. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Reynolds Center ticket office.

The Golden Hurricane will be looking for its first win of the season, after starting the year with an 0-5 mark. In those five losses, TU has only lost by double figures once (64-53 to Oral Roberts), and has decreased that margin in every game to just a one-point decision to Loyola Marymount (75-74) in their last contest. The Golden Hurricane has lost the five games by an average of 7.2 points.

Taleya Mayberry is posting a team-leading 21.6 points per game and 17 assists, while Tiffani Couisnard also earns double figures with 10.8 ppg, and has team-bests of 9.6 rebounds, nine steals and six blocks. Kelsee Grovey adds 9.0 ppg, 3.0 rpg, and has nine assists and five steals, and Ashley Clark and Loren McDaniel both post 7.0 ppg.

Utah Valley has a 1-5 mark this season, including a win over Utah State in just the second game of the year. The Wolverines are led by Sammie Jensen who averages a double-double with 19.0 points per game and 14.3 rebounds per game, while tallying seven blocks and seven steals. Kaycee Mansfield also nets double figures with 10.3 ppg, while Alle Cardwell has a team-best 26 assists and Whitney Jenkins has a team-high 10 steals.

TU and UVU met last year for the first time, when the Wolverines earned a 78-62 victory in Orem, Utah.
