Utah Basketball Gets Swept At Home For First Time In 2024 By Arizona Schools

Feb 10, 2024, 8:11 PM

SALT LAKE CITY- The Runnin’ Utes wrapped up their time at home against the Arizona State Sun Devils before turning their attention to the L.A. schools.

Utah put on a show in Thursday night’s triple overtime thriller with No. 8 Arizona that came up just short of victory.

The Utes got off to a fast start against ASU, but the Sun Devils closed the gap before the half ended. Utah still went into the locker room with a narrow lead, 42-40.

The Utes came out slow in the second half and suffered their first home sweep by the away teams after ASU pulled away with an 85-77 win.

Look Ahead At Utah’s Schedule

The Utes will be back out on the road next week heading to Los Angeles to take on the SoCal schools.

Utah tips things off with the USC Trojans on Thursday, February 15 at 9:00 pm MT. That game will air on FS1.

The Runnin’ Utes then wrap their trip up against the UCLA Bruins on Sunday, February 18 with tipoff set for 5:00 pm MT. That game will also air on FS1.
