Utah State women’s basketball games are also broadcast on the radio on 92.3 KBLU, with Jaden Johnson on the call. The games will be streamed on the air and online.

Dixie State opened the season splitting a pair of games at the Western Oregon Hampton Inn D2 Shootout. The Trailblazers started the weekend in an 81-70 loss to Western Oregon before defeating Saint Martin's, 81-74. Tuesday’s game will be an exhibition for the Trailblazers, but will count as an official contest for the Aggies.
Last season, Dixie State went 5-21 on the year, while posting a 5-15 record in PacWest play. The Trailblazers return four starters, along with one additional letterwinner, from last season’s roster. There are seven newcomers on the Dixie State bench this season. Redshirt junior guard Tramina Jordan is the top returning scorer, while senior center Ashlee Burge brings back the most rebounds for Dixie State, as the two averaged 11.0 points and 5.6 rebounds, respectively, last season. JD Gustin is beginning his second season as the head coach of the Dixie State program.
Utah State and Dixie State have met just once in official competition, a game won by the Trailblazers at the start of the 2010-11 season. The teams have also played two exhibition contests, with the Aggies winning both games in 2008 and 2015.
After one game, sophomore guard Olivia West is the leading scorer for the Aggies, as she tallied 32 points in the season opener. Sophomore forward Shannon Dufficy led the team with 12 rebounds. As a team, Utah State shot 50.9 percent (29-of-57) from the field, 53.3 percent (8-of-15) from the 3-point line and 69.2 percent (18-of-26) from the free throw line.
