Poeltl, Utah Holds Off Washington in Overtime 80-75
SEATTLE (AP) — Jakob Poeltl scored 29 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Lorenzo Bonam had two key baskets early in overtime, and Utah knocked Washington from first place in the Pac-12 Conference with an 80-75 overtime win on Sunday night.
Poeltl and the Utes (15-5, 4-3 Pac-12) overcame awful shooting in the first half to complete a sweep of the Washington schools and hand the Huskies just their second conference loss. But they needed an extra five minutes to get the victory after David Crisp's 3-pointer with 16.5 seconds left in regulation tied the game at 66 and forced the extra session.
Bonam scored on a pair of drives early in overtime — the first a goaltending call — and Poeltl's free throws with 53 seconds left gave the Utes a 75-73 lead. The Utes made 7 of 8 at the free-throw line in the final minute of overtime.
Andrew Andrews led Washington (13-6, 5-2) with 17 points before fouling out late in overtime.
