BYU Beats Utah, Rides Rudi Williams in Win

BYU came in as an underdog on its home floor but led nearly the whole way in a 75-66 win over Utah in the Marriott Center Saturday evening.

Rudi Williams had another huge game off the bench with 26 points to pace all BYU scorers. Utah had no answer for the 5th-year senior, who scored from all areas of the court and came up with buckets at opportune times. Fousseyni Traore was questionable coming into the game after missing Western Oregon Thursday with a foot issue, but the big man had 17 points and 8 rebounds — including BYU’s first 10 points of the game — to pace BYU’s frontcourt.
