Surprise, Utah won a game! In fact, it was their first road win of the year. With the Lobos win earlier in the day, this game was nearly epic, pitting the two worst teams in the conference against one another for sole possession of last place. And if you watched tonight's game, it definitely had the feel of two really bad teams going at it. In fact, for most of the second half, it looked like both teams were doing their best to lose. I'll raise your missed shot with a turnover!
Speaking of turnovers, the Utes actually had more turnovers (23) than field goals made (20) and yet still managed to pull this one out. I'm still trying to figure that one out, though I guess TCU shooting only 13 of 24 from the line helped.
In the end, it was one of the ugliest wins I've seen in a very long time. Neither team deserved to walk out of the arena with a victory, but I guess I'll take it.
I will have more on this game tomorrow, but for now I guess we can just enjoy the W.
