Tempe, Ariz. • A rebound that Utah couldn't secure. The inability to keep Jahii Carson out of the lane when it counted. Three missed chances at the basket for the game-winning bucket.
In the next 48 hours, the Utes will wonder what could have been. They had many opportunities to defeat Arizona State, start the Pac-12 Conference season off with a statement win and head into Arizona with a bucket load of confidence.
As it is, Utah suffered a difficult-to-take 55-54 overtime defeat. The seasonlong narrative of not being able to close out games persists, and the Utes now head to Tucson to take on top-five Arizona with a second consecutive defeat starting them square in the face.
