SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah brought in its highest rated freshman class in the Pac-12 era before the start of the season. A few of those first-year players are starting to show what made them so special as recruits.
Timmy Allen, Both Gach, and Riley Battin led a balanced attack on offense and defense that powered Utah to an 88-70 victory over Washington State on Saturday night. The three freshmen made their presence felt all over the court. They scored tons of key baskets and set up plenty of others, collected rebounds, and made stops at critical junctures.
Allen ended up leading the Utes with 15 points and nine rebounds. Gach added 14 points while Battin chipped in 11.
