Idaho State vs Utah

Utah 71, Idaho St. 59


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Cedric Martin scored a season-high 19 points and Jason Washburn added 17 to boost Utah over Idaho State 71-59 on Friday night, snapping an eight-game losing streak.

Dijon Farr also posted a season-best with 16 points and had four steals to help the Utes (2-8) end their longest losing skid since 1943.

Idaho State (2-8), which was led by Melvin Morgan's 13 points, has lost 18 in a row against Pac-12 teams dating back to a 62-57 victory over Oregon in the 1986-87 season.

The game was tight, as neither team led by more than nine points until late in the second half. Then the Utes ratcheted up the defensive pressure and got hot on the other end.

The Utes had trouble finding shots against the Bengals' zone until they got points in transition and Martin found his range from the perimeter.
