It was a little bit of a slow start for the Huskies, followed by a long bit of a slow finish for the Utes. The Huskies took a 33-27 halftime lead, but just destroyed them in the second half, en route to a 62-45 finish.
Again, thanks to the 8pm start time, I missed this one. I was asleep before this game even STARTED, so let’s take a breeze through the box score.
Five double digit scorers, with Naz Carter leading the way with 12 points. Dickerson had 11 points in 25 minutes, and Thybulle, Crisp, and Nowell each had 10 points. The Huskies also limited themselves to 9 turnovers, while forcing 18 on the Utes.
I don’t think Utah is very good. Sure, they swept the L.A. schools on the road, as well as taking down ASU in their own arena, but they’re an 8-6 team in the Pac-12 that’s going nowhere. Winning this game is what’s to be expected. Losing this game would’ve been a disaster (though, you could make that same argument for all the rest of our games).
