The Cardinals are 11-5 overall and 2-1 in SLC play. They are led by Nikki Williams with 14.3 points per game and a 17.3 average in SLC games only. Williams leads the conference in scoring in SLC games, just ahead of the Islanders Davis.

The Islanders look to pick up another home win before hitting the road again on Saturday when they travel to San Antonio to take on UTSA in a 2 PM game.
