SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Andy Ogide scored a career-high 28 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to power Colorado State past Utah 74-68 Saturday.
Ogide broke a tie game with a jumper and Greg Smith followed with a basket and two free throws in the final 1:31 to clinch the game for the Rams (15-6, 5-2 Mountain West), who won for the fourth time in their last five games.
Smith had 14 points and Adam Nigon added 11 to overcome the absence of Wes Eikmeier, CSU's third-leading scorer, who missed the game with a strained foot tendon.
Will Clyburn scored 16 of his 19 points in the second half, while J.J. O'Brien and Josh Watkins had 11 each for Utah (10-11, 3-4). The Utes had their three-game win streak snapped.
