Arizona crushes Utah to snap 2-game skid

Sometimes the schedule lines up just right.

With a winless trip to the Oregon schools calling into question how good they actually are, the Arizona Wildcats responded with arguably their best performance of the season in a 93-77 blowout of the Utah Utes on Thursday night at McKale Center.

Utah provided the perfect opponent for Arizona (12-5, 2-2 Pac-12) to build confidence against, allowing it to build a double-digit advantage midway through the first half en route to a 52-28 halftime lead, its most points in the opening 20 minutes since scoring 53 at Washington State in a 100-72 win in January 2018.
