The Utes handed the No. 4 Wildcats their first loss of the season, 81-66, on Thursday night in the Pac-12 opener for both teams.

Utah locked down Arizona on the perimeter - limiting the Wildcats to 4-of-28 shooting from 3-point range. The Utes flustered the Wildcats into rushed shots and early turnovers, setting the tone for what became a comfortable victory.

Depth helps Virginia climb to No. 3

The starting five is the same, but that is where comparisons between the Virginia team that has climbed to No. 3 in the AP Top 25 and last year's NIT quarterfinalists ends.

Yes, one more year together and a trip to Italy has made the first five significantly better, but part of the credit for that surely goes to another group: the reinforcements. They've helped the Cavaliers (6-0) already knock off No. 6 Baylor, No. 16 Illinois and Michigan.
