Washington vs. Utah Score: Huskies Lead Struggling Utes At Halftime

The Washington Huskies are looking to split their road trip after falling to Colorado earlier in the week, and after one half of play against the struggling Utah Utes, they lead 29-27. Both teams got off to very slow starts -- and, honestly, the 11 a.m. tipoff time might have played a big role in that -- but they managed to pick it up midway through the half.

The Huskies were led offensively by big man Aziz N'Diaye and forward Darnell Gant, who both finished with five points after 20 minutes of play. Gant picked up his third foul late in the half and may begin the second half on the bench to avoid even more foul trouble. Tony Wroten struggled shooting the ball and has just four points. The talented freshman point guard has two fouls as well.

Sharp-shooter Josh Watkins struggled a bit with the ball in his hands, but he leads all scorers with six points. Guards Chris Hines and Cedric Martin chipped in for five points each, while Kareem Storey added four points from off the bench.

The second half is about to begin. The Huskies desperately need to win this game. Two losses on the road to Colorado and Utah would all-but-eliminate Washington from March Madness short of the team winning the conference tournament.
