Utah Sets New Season Low From Downtown
BOULDER, Colo. – The University of Utah lost an important game to the Colorado Buffaloes, 71-63.
The scoring margin doesn’t show that the Utes struggled but that did from the perimeter. They shot a season low 19 percent from the three-point line on 5-for-26 attempts.
Their previous low this season was against the Washington Huskies at the Huntsman Center on January 10, when they made just 6 of their 30 attempts as they lost 88-70.
Against Colorado, the Utes best perimeter shooter was Donnie Tillman, who made two of his five attempts from deep.
