Sometimes, it's all about how you end a half. With Utah holding a four-point lead late, the Utes scored the last six points of the first 20 minutes to take a 38-28 lead into intermission over Savannah State at the Huntsman Center.
In a half that's been close throughout, it represents the largest lead for Larry Krystkowiak's team. Jordan Loveridge scored on the fastbreak with time running out to cap the mini-run. The sophomore forward has nine points and four rebounds to lead the Utes.
Delon Wright and Princeton Onwas both have eight points, while Renan Lenz has four points and five rebounds. Utah is looking for its fifth straight win to start the season.
