SALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s youth came through as the Utes knocked off Stanford 64-56 in overtime at the Huntsman Center on Thursday night.

Here are three takeaways that defined the game:

  • Freshman Branden Carlson had a gritty effort on both ends for the Utes, finishing with a career-high 15 points, 10 rebounds — including four offensive boards — and eight blocks.
  • Both teams struggled shooting from the floor — Utah (13-9, 4-6 Pac-12) shot 36.8% for the game while Stanford (16-6, 5-4 Pac-12) was held to 35.4% — but the Utes held an advantage at the free-throw line, making 16 of 23 compared to 4 of 4 for the Cardinal. Freshman Jaxon Brenchley also hit a 3-pointer in OT to give Utah a four-point lead as both teams made six 3-pointers on the night.
  • Timmy Allen also had 15 points for the Utes. While he shot 3 of 10 from the field, he made 9 of 12 from the free-throw line.
