Washington @ Utah
Current Records: Washington 12-7; Utah 10-7
What to Know
The Washington Huskies have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Utah Utes at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday at Jon M. Huntsman Center. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
The Huskies were close but no cigar on Saturday as they fell 64-61 to the Oregon Ducks. One thing holding Washington back was the mediocre play of G Marcus Tsohonis, who did not have his best game; he finished with 14 points on 6-for-13 shooting and turned the ball over four times in his 36 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, Utah received a tough blow on Saturday as they fell 83-64 to the Arizona State Sun Devils. A silver lining for Utah was the play of F Timmy Allen, who posted a double-double on 18 points and ten rebounds.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Washington is expected to win a tight contest. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money in their wallets whenever they hit the road.
Washington had enough points to win and then some against Utah when the two teams previously met in February of last year, taking their matchup 62-45. Will the Huskies repeat their success, or do the Utes have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
