SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak acknowledges he doesn't have NBA-ready players on the roster, but knows his team can be successful when everyone contributes. The Utes got exactly that Sunday night and are now back to .500 in Pac-12 play after a rough first half of January. Tyler Rawson scored 22 points and knocked down a career-high six 3-pointers as Utah beat Washington State 82-69. The Utes (12-7, 4-4) won their second consecutive game for the first time since late December and the Cougars (9-10, 1-6) have now lost 6 of 7. "That's the definition, the essence of a team," Krystkowiak said. "The whole thing is keeping guys engaged. It's going to a variety of different guys. ...

Amber Melgoza added 14 points and Jenna Moser 10 for Washington, which took a 32-15 halftime lead after the Cougars shot just 19 percent.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak received a scare early Thursday when he found out starting point guard Justin Bibbins was dealing with flu-like symptoms. That clearly wasn't an issue by game time. Bibbins scored 20 and grabbed 10 rebounds as Utah broke a four-game losing streak with a 70-62 victory over Washington. "He pulled a little Michael Jordan, I think," Krystkowiak said. The Huskies (13-6, 3-3 Pac-12 Conference) have now dropped back-to-back games for just the second time this season. Utah (11-7, 3-4) muddled up the game throughout the night, but was locked in on defense and kept Washington from finding an offensive groove.

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Colorado let a big lead nearly slip away again, but a strong start and finish to the second half was enough to keep the Buffaloes rolling. McKinley Wright IV had 10 of his 17 points during a late run, Namon Wright had 16 points and 10 rebounds, George King also scored 16 and Colorado held on to beat Washington State 82-73 on Thursday night. The Buffaloes (12-7, 4-3 Pac-12) have won four of five conference games after dropping two in Oregon to start the season. Colorado has wins over Arizona and Arizona State, as well as Saturday's win at UCLA. "Tonight was very important to our team to keep that momentum going and get above .500 in the league," Buffaloes coach Tad Boyle said. "Now it's a separation game on Saturday.
