"The whole flow was going to the right side," Hines said, "and I saw Ced coming to the left side, and my man sucked in just a tad bit and I got a little bit of room and got a nice look."

Twenty seconds later, after Randle drove the length of the court and missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, the Utes exulted.

At a glance

Utah 58, Stanford 57

After shooting just 21 free throws in their last three games, the Utes go 17 for 21 from the line against Stanford.

» The Utes avoid a season-worst nine-game losing streak. They previously snapped an eight-game losing streak on Dec. 16 with a win over Idaho State.

» With USC’s 56-52 loss to Arizona State, the Utes moved two full games ahead of the Trojans and appear likely to avoid finishing last in the Pac-12.

It was just one win, but in a season with few, it felt like some kind of championship, even if all it did was strengthen the Utes’ hold on 11th place going into the Pac-12 Tournament, where the Utes suddenly look like they could be a threat.

"I wouldn’t want to play us right now if we finish 11th or whatever the case may be," Krystkowiak said. "I wouldn’t want to be the sixth-place team that faces us first."

That team, by the way, could be Stanford.
