Utah nearly did tie it once. After a pair of free throws by Washburn, it was one basket away from fully recovering from that 10-point deficit spurred by Krystkowiak’s technical.

It unraveled again.

Washburn missed a baby hook shot. Colorado made free throws. Martin’s 3-pointer from the corner was on line, but off point.

This is where Hines would later say he thought the Utes would seize control.

"I wasn’t ready for it to end," Washburn said. "We just didn’t give up."

The Buffaloes’ lead was four. Then six.


Then, once, more it was 10.

On their next trip down the floor, the Utes lost possession on a jump ball and Krystkowiak muttered under his breath and shook his head. There was no use yelling.

Two minutes remained, but the game was over.

After 1,224 minutes, 16 seconds, then 15:44 more, it had ended.
