LOGAN -- The Weber State women's basketball team will take aim at its first in-state opponent of the season tonight, taking a short trip north to face Utah State.
Tip-off between the Wildcats and Aggies is set for 7 p.m. at the Smith Spectrum.
"It was good to get that first real experience of playing together," senior forward/center Mikell Woodfield said. "I feel like every day we're improving on things. We're getting better. Everyone is learning their roles and how they need to play and what they need to do.
"It was just good to get out and play against someone else."
It will be the 39th all-time meeting in the series, which Weber State leads 23-15, although Utah State has claimed the past three in the series.
Weber State (0-1) is coming off an 86-68 road setback to Boise State in its season opener on Sunday, while Utah State (1-1) split to games during its opening week, knocking off Wyoming and then falling to South Dakota State.
"We know we need to step it up and play from the first minute like we did in the second half (against Boise State)," Woodfield said. "We realized we needed to pick it up defensively. It doesn't matter how much we score, if we don't stop them from scoring we aren't going to win."
The Aggies are led by Ashlee Brown's 24.5 points per game average over the opening two games of the season.
Utah State coach Reagan Pebley is in her ninth season with the Aggies, and is 90-146 overall.
Weber State will make its home debut on Saturday night, taking on its second straight in-state opponent, when it hosts BYU at 7 p.m. in the Dee Events Center.
