SEATTLE (AP) Utah entered Wednesday's matchup with Washington knowing it was going to be difficult to score against the Huskies' heralded 2-3 zone defense.
Washington held Utah to just five second-half field goals, outscoring the Utes 29-18 after halftime on way to a 62-45 victory.
"The second half was one of the best periods, 16 or 17 minutes, that we've played all season," Washington coach Mike Hopkins said. "We were active. We were talking. We were aware, and most importantly we finished with rebounding."
