Utah Storms Back, Survives In Tempe To Split Arizona Trip

TEMPE, Ariz.—Starting the game in both Tucson and Tempe wasn’t the problem for Utah. The next several minutes in both games saw the Utes (11-4, 2-1 Pac-12) fall in a deep hole, but the road team found a way back against Arizona State (9-8, 2-2 Pac-12), winning 88-82 at Wells Fargo Arena.

Down ten in the first half and giving up a 23-5 run to ASU after a quick 11-2 start, the Utes battled back in the second half behind back-to-back-to-back three pointers from Kyle Kuzma to lead by as many as ten.

Kuzma’s three triples ties a career high as part of a 26-point, 12-rebound effort to help his team bounce back in conference play.

Four Utes scored in double-digits, including freshman Devon Daniels, who added a pair of three-pointers to his normal aggressive drive game.

The Utes cut down the Sun Devils’ potent offense, largely due to a second-half adjustment in pick-and-roll defense.

Utah will head home for next week’s games against USC and UCLA on Thursday and Saturday, respectively.
