SALT LAKE CITY – Brandon Taylor scored 16 points and Jordan Loveridge chipped in with 13 to lead Utah to an 81-63 victory over Washington State on Saturday night.

Delon Wright added 11 points and nine assists for Utah. Six different players scored in double figures for the Utes (16-7 overall, 5-6 Pac-12), who beat the Cougars at their home arena for the 12th consecutive time.

Utah has not lost a home game to Washington State since the first meeting between the schools in 1946.

DaVonte Lacy scored 22 points for the Cougars (9-14, 2-9) and D.J. Shelton added 19 points and 10 rebounds.

It wasn’t enough keep Washington State from losing for the ninth time in its last 12 games.

Lacy has scored in double figures in each of his three games since returning from a rib injury.

Utah dominated around the basket and in transition. The Utes outscored WSU 42-18 in the paint, had a 10-0 edge in fast-break points and shot 56.7 percent from the floor.

Washington State started cold on offense and never quite found a rhythm in the first half. The Cougars missed eight of their first nine shots and finished the game at 38.9 percent shooting.

“Utah deserves a lot of the credit,” WSU coach Ken Bone said. “They played a very good game. I love their energy and toughness on the defensive end. On the offensive end, they executed and hit threes. They were very hard to stop on the defensive end. They scored very well against us tonight.”
