Robbie Reid was never supposed to shoot the shot that beat Utah in front of the second-largest crowd in Huntsman Center history. But the freshman launched an uncontested 24-foot 3-pointer with his team down two points and 16 seconds left to give BYU the victory. Reid's shot may be the most memorable in the 43 Utah-BYU games at the Huntsman Center, along with Fredette's half-courter.

Utah still had time to re-take the lead and apparently did when Mark Rydalch drove the lane and hit a short jumper with six seconds left. However, he also crashed into BYU's Russell Larson and was whistled with an offensive foul that U. coach Rick Majerus said should have been a no-call. Larson added a free throw for the final score and Utah's Terry Preston missed a desperation shot at the buzzer.

Reid scored 13 points on 4-of-6 3-pointers, while Utah freshman Keith Van Horn led all scorers with 21 points.

Must have been really tough for Mike Sorensen to find enough Ute wins to make the article interesting.

I wonder with wiggy back if the score will even be close at half?

I was disappointed that there were no Mike Newlin games. He was a great Utah player and went on to have a solid NBA record.

But the series has been exciting. This year and last year the Cougars seem to be far more dominant.

I think it may be six or seven years before the Utes beat the Cougars again.
