SALT LAKE CITY — So far, not so bad for the Utah Utes. Although they trail Colorado 22-19 at halftime in the Huntsman Center, its a far cry from their last meeting with the Buffaloes.

On Dec. 31, Colorado handed Utah a 73-33 setback.

This time around, however, things are much more competitive. There were seven lead changes and two ties in the first half. Neither team has shot the ball well, though. Utah is 33.3 percent from the field, while Colroado is shooting just 29.6 percent.

Colorado guard Carlon Brown, a transfer from Utah, is 1-for-8. He's been booed by the student section every time he has touched the ball.
