Utah beats TCU 68-49
SALT LAKE CITY (AP)—Shaun Green scored 20 points, including six 3-pointers, as Utah claimed a share of the Mountain West Conference regular season championship with a 68-49 victory over TCU on Saturday.
The Utes (21-9, 12-4 Mountain West) never trailed and built a first-half lead of as large as 14 points against the Horned Frogs (14-16, 5-11).
Luke Nevill added 14 points and matched a career-high with 16 rebounds for Utah. Lawrence Borha and Carlon Brown finished with 12 and 10 points, respectively.
Ronnie Moss scored 14 to lead TCU, which enters next week’s MWC tournament in Las Vegas with four consecutive losses and setbacks in 10 of its past 11 outings.
It was the 11th straight win in the Huntsman Center for Utah, which could have won the title outright if not for back-to-back losses at BYU and New Mexico over the past week.
