SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah's Andrew Bogut scored 25 and grabbed 15 rebounds as the Utes defeated the Colorado Buffaloes 80-48 on Thursday.
The Utes (10-3) have now won five games in a row, and six of their last seven. The loss ended a five-game winning streak for the Buffaloes (7-3), who haven't won in Salt Lake City since 1946.
The Utes could do little wrong in the first half as they cruised to a 48-21 halftime lead, led by Bogut's 20 points and eight rebounds.
The Buffaloes only managed 31 percent shooting from the field in the half. The Utes, meanwhile, hit 14-of-14 foul shots in the first half while Colorado never reached the line.
Utah stretched its lead in the second half, at one point going up by as many as 36.
Colorado forward Chris Copeland led the Buffaloes with 15 points.
