No sugar-coating this one. Utah suffered a bad loss on Saturday afternoon.

A Utes team lacking energy and scoring punch was soundly defeated 76-59 by a USC team with 10 losses in 16 games heading into this matchup.

In the process, Utah is now 0-4 in Pac-12 play, 8-8 overall. The Utes are reeling, and are facing a tough road trip this week at Washington State and Washington.

USC ended the first half with a 7-0 run to take a 32-23 advantage. The Trojans were never seriously threatened in the second half.
