Default Utah shoots 80% against Air Force

Just wanted to give props to Utah, that did something that hasn't happened since 1985: Shot 80% from the field in a game (24 of 30).

They did it against Air Force, who shot only 44%, and the Utes still only won by 12 (63-51). Talk about a patient, Princeton-style offense!

Andrew Bogut shot 11 of 12, and the announcers of the San Diego State-Colorado State game I was watching on ESPN wondered if he's not the best player in the country.

Yeah, I couldn't believe that when I heard it. Not even Villanova when they had the "perfect game" against Georgetown shot 80% (79%).

Good offense or bad defense? Probably both, combined with luck.

Reading the reports, it was mainly that Utah was working it inside to Bogut (who shot 11-of-12), and Air Force didn't have any inside presence to stop him. Take that out, and Utah only took 18 shots, making 13.
