Utah Holds Off San Diego St. for MWC Tourney Title

Posted: Updated:

Luke Nevill scored 10 of his 18 points in the second half of a defense-dominated game, and Shaun Green's steal right before the buzzer clinched Utah's 52-50 victory over San Diego State on Saturday for the Mountain West Conference tournament title.

Lawrence Borha scored 12 points and hit three free throws in the final 12.8 seconds for the second-seeded Utes (24-9). They won their second Mountain West tournament title not with scoring, but by limiting San Diego State star Lorrenzo Wade to 12 points on 5-of-16 shooting.

Richie Williams hit back-to-back 3-pointers in the final 14 seconds for San Diego State to make it 51-50. After Borha missed his last free throw with 7.6 seconds left, Williams drove downcourt for a final shot-but Green swiped it cleanly from his hands on the perimeter.
