SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Marshall Henderson scored 13 and Jordan Cyphers added 12 as Utah got off to a quick start and cruised to an 88-48 win over Southern University Saturday night.
By halftime, Jordan Cyphers scored three 3-pointers in matching his career-high with 12 points and Utah led 52-17. Most of Utah starters played sparingly in the second half.
Jazz Williams scored 21 points and Earnest Jones had 15 for Southern (0-3), which was outrebounded by the taller Utes 53-27.
Henderson's two free throws gave Utah a 27-6 lead midway through the first half. The lead grew to 50 points at 81-31 when Shawn Glover made a shot in the lane with 8:49 to play in the game.
Southern missed their first 12 attempts from the field. Jameel Grace finally made a layup with 11:14 left in the first half, the Jaguars' only 2-point basket of the half.
