Preview | Box Score | Recap

SALT LAKE CITY (AP)—Tyler Kepkay scored 21 points, including 10 in a row late in the game, to lift Utah to a 74-64 victory over Weber State.

The Utes snapped a three-game losing streak with Saturday’s win.

Carlon Brown added a career-high 19 points and season-high 10 rebounds for the Utes (6-4), who beat the Wildcats (5-5) for the eighth straight time.

The Utes had blown a 14-point lead in the second half when Kepkay began his game-breaking streak with barely five minutes left. He scored back-to-back 3-pointers and then hit two free throws and scored a scooping layup, giving the Utes a 68-59 lead that Weber State never recovered from.

Damian Lillard and Steve Panos led four Wildcats in double-figures with 13 points each, but WSU committed 17 turnovers and scored only eight points in the final seven minutes.
