20-10 – Justin Bibbins recorded his first career double-double as a Ute. It didn’t come on the back of a great passing night, although he had five assists. The 5-foot-8-inch point guard led the team in rebounds with 10 and in points with 20. He also made a critical steal with less than a minute left in the game as Washington threatened to make a comeback.

14 – The Washington Huskies committed 14 personal fouls in the first half, sending the Utes to the free throw line 14 times, leading them to make 9 of 14 points. On the other end of the floor, the Utes committed 6 first-half fouls, which resulted in Washington scoring 3 first-half free throws.

25 percent- After shooting above 40 percent in three of their past five games, the Utes shot a mediocre 25 percent from the 3-point line, making only 7 of 27 shots. The Utes limited Washington to 2 of 18 shooting from behind the arc, their second worst 3-point shooting game of the season.

21 – It’s a good thing Utah out shot Washington from the free throw and 3-point line since Washington outdid the Utes overall. Utah actually made four fewer field goals than Washington (21-25).

4 – The victory ends Utah’s four-game losing streak and brings the team to a 3-4 Pac-12 record.
