Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune Former Utah coach Rick Majerus' sweater is retired. Utah hosts Colorado, college basketball Saturday, February 2, 2013 in Salt Lake City.

It wasn’t easy, but Utah has another big win, another step toward respectability.

The Utes defeated Colorado 58-55 on Saturday at the Huntsman Center. On Rick Majerus day — the former coach had his sweater retired — Utah rebounded from the Stanford game with a stirring performance.

Jason Washburn led the way with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Jeremy Olsen had 12 points and Cedric Martin had 11.

Utah improves to 10-11 on the season with the victory.
