Men's Basketball: USC 64, Utah 86 - Highlights 1/12/17

Runnin’ Utes beat down USC 86-64” recap from our friends at

“Starting a game by trailing 10-0 is not ideal, but that’s what Utah did against USC Thursday night. Fortunatley, for the Utes, they countered with their own 11-0 run to take the lead, and they wouldn’t look back from there. The Utes were balanced and efficent against the Trojans.”

Recap: Utah men's basketball uses team effort in victory over No. 25 USC

No. 25 USC falls to hot-shooting Utah, 86-64” Recap from USC Athletics via the AP

“The Trojans went in the opposite direction after the opening 10-point run and shot just 30.8 percent the rest of the half after a 4-for-6 start.

[. . .]

The Trojans were outclassed after the opening minutes. Their shooting was a dismal 36.7 percent for the game and they failed to take advantage of their athleticism. USC needs wins so the 14-0 nonconference record doesn't turn into fool's gold.”
