SALT LAKE CITY — Utah met little resistance in rolling to its second road conference victory of the season, beating Washington State 88-47 on Wednesday night at Beasley Coliseum.

Kyle Kuzma led the charge with double-double numbers of 19 points and 11 rebounds, while Lorenzo Bonam added 17 points on 6 of 8 shooting and three assists. Sedrick Barefield and Gabe Bealer also scored 10 points each, with Bealer adding seven rebounds.

The Utes were missing David Collette, who remained in Salt Lake City under the concussion protocol. It didn't matter, as Utah led by as many as 41 in the second half.


The Utes shot 57.9 percent from the field, including 47.1 percent on 3-pointers (8 of 17). The Cougars shot 32.8 percent overall, including 21.9 percent (7 of 32) in the second half.

Utah's bench players outscored Washington State's 39-4.

Utah never trailed, leading for 39:19 on the night. Bonam hit a 3-pointer with 19:04 to play in the first half to put the Utes up 5-2, and they led from there on out.
