Utah Utes basketball: Utes honor Majerus with blowout win over Boise State
SALT LAKE CITY — Jared DuBois scored 18 points and the Utah Utes shot a blistering 67 percent from the floor as they routed Boise State, 76-55, in the first game since legendary former coach Rick Majerus' death.
With a trademark Majerus sweater adorning the first seat on the home team's bench, the Utes flew out on a 20-2 run in the first half as DuBois and Jordan Loveridge led the way. The Utes led 41-25 at halftime.
Utah (6-2) continued to build its lead early in the second half as Utes guard Glen Dean scored six points in a 10-4 Utes run. Boise State (6-2) got no closer than 18 points for the rest of the game.
The Utes went 9-16 on three-point attempts and outrebounded the Broncos 28-16.
Jason Washburn added 13 points and six rebounds for the Utes. Derrick Marks scored 18 points to lead Boise State.
