what to know
The Utah Utes lost both of their games to the Washington Huskies last season by scores of 73-77 and 70-82, so they are hoping to turn the tables this season. Utah and Washington will meet in a Pac-12 battle at 8 pm ET on Saturday at the Jon M. Huntsman Center. Both teams look to continue the momentum of their previous victories.
The Washington State Cougars usually have all the answers at home, but on Thursday the Utes proved too difficult of a challenge. Utah defeated Washington State 77-63. It was another big night for Utah center Branden Carlson, who had 28 points to go along with eight rebounds.
Meanwhile, the Colorado Buffaloes usually have all the answers at home, but on Thursday the Huskies proved too difficult of a challenge. Washington had enough and outscored the Buffaloes 75-72. He took five tries, but Washington can finally say he has a win on the road. They relied on the efforts of forward Keion Brooks Jr., who scored 25 points, and center Braxton Meah, who posted a double-double with 12 rebounds and ten points.
Utah is expected to win this easily, but they should have easily beaten the Sam Houston Bearkats on Nov. 17 as well, and instead screwed up 65-55. In other words, don’t write off Washington just yet.
