10 memorable Utah-BYU games at the Huntsman Center
#9 - Feb. 3, 1989: Utah 90, BYU 86 »2 of 10 «
Neither team was having a great season when the two rivals met in this early February game, tied for fifth place at 3-4 in WAC play. But the two teams produced a run-and-gun shootout that wasn't decided until the final minute. The Cougars led 86-84, but couldn't score over the final two-and-a-half minutes of the game. Mitch Smith and Jimmy Madison both scored to put the Utes ahead for good. Then after Smith stripped the ball from freshman John Fish, Jon Hansen added another basket for Utah. Ute freshman Josh Grant scored a career-high 24 points and added nine rebounds, eight assists and four blocks. BYU was led by Michael Smith with 21 points, but he only made 7 of 20 shots from the field.
