Just because 15th-ranked Utah had beaten six previous opponents at the Huntsman Center by an average of 31 points didn’t mean they’d have an easy time with a BYU squad that hadnt won a road game in almost a year. This one turned out to be your typical Utah-BYU contest with eight lead changes, seven ties and an on-court scuffle.

The Runnin Utes prevailed 83-77 and Keith Van Horn had 29 points and 10 rebounds.

A melee erupted when BYU freshman Nathan Cooper fouled Van Horn hard and the Ute star reacted with an elbow to draw a technical.
