PHOENIX — Le’Tre Darthard matched a season high with 25 points as Utah Valley held off Grand Canyon 76-74 on Saturday night.
Darthard added seven rebounds for the Wolverines (16-5, 7-1 Western Athletic Conference). Trey Woodbury pitched in with 19 points, six rebounds and six assists. Tim Fuller scored 10.
“What a game from both sides,” said Utah Valley head coach Mark Madsen. “Grand Canyon had some good schemes with some great execution and our guys played so hard. I love the heart of our players. GCU hit six 3s tonight and in their last game they had one guy make seven, so it was nice to see our Guys lock in on defending the three.”
Rayshon Harrison finished with 18 points and seven rebounds to pace the Antelopes (13-7, 4-3). Noah Baumann added 14 points and eight boards, while Gabe McGlothan finished with 13 points.
