SALT LAKE CITY – Delon Wright hit a go-ahead jumper in the lane with 14 seconds left in overtime to boost No. 25 Utah over No. 8 Wichita State 69-68 on Wednesday night, snapping the Shockers' regular-season winning streak at 35 games.
Wright, Utah's do-everything guard, scored five of his 13 points in the extra period as Utah (6-1) withstood a late Shockers comeback and three missed free throws in the final 3.2 seconds.
Brandon Taylor had 17 points and Dakarai Tucker scored 13 for the Utes, who hadn't hosted such a highly ranked team since toppling No. 1 Alabama 51-49 on Dec. 30, 1999.
Ron Baker scored 15 points, Tekele Cotton had 14 and Fred VanVleet added 13, but the Shockers (4-1) couldn't overcome 38 percent shooting.
