PLAYER OF THE GAMEDakarai Tucker came off the bench and poured a team-high 19 points for the Utes. It was a career high for the 6-5 junior guard. He converted 4 of 5 three-pointers and was 7 of 8 from the field in 22 minutes. He had 12 points in the second half.

TURNING POINT – Washington trailed 43-38 with 15:29 left when Utah went on a 23-3 run over a six-minute span. When it was over, the Utes were ahead by 25 points (66-41) at the 9:43 mark. The Huskies never got closer than 20 points the rest of the way.

QUOTABLE – “We were down 25 points with eight minutes. If we’re going to lose, we got to cut into that. We can’t lose by 25 points.” — Washington sophomore center Robert Upshaw.

BY THE NUMBERS:

6 – Washington’s assists, which were a season low.

9 – Assists by Utah’s Delon Wright, who probably should have had 14.
