Best part on this night — when Utah picked up its second road win in a row — was that Millsap had company.

Jefferson was hot early and finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Gordon Hayward played aggressively on both ends of the court, finishing with 19 points, four rebounds, three assists, two blocked shots and a steal.

Frontcourt Dominance: Utah was led again by the veteran front court of Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson. Each produced a double-double, the former with 26 points and 12 rebounds, the latter with 18 and 12 of his own. Millsap put the team on his back in the fourth quarter, at one juncture scoring 12 consecutive points on an array of sly moves and jumpers.

Not to be outdone, starting small forward Gordon Hayward added 17 points, four rebounds, and three assists. He made some crucial lay-ups down the final stretch.

FORWARDS: Paul Millsap turned in perhaps his best performance of the young season and was noticeably more tenacious on the glass than Denver's Nene. His 26 points came on 12-19 shooting.

As for our own profile, we got a boost with Minnesota's surge. The Golden Gophers are now at No. 38 in the RPI, giving us a very solid road victory. Iowa's run has them creeping toward the top 100, but Butler's home loss to Cleveland State toppled them over the 100 (and "bad loss" mark). Miami is holding firm, but they have a nice stretch of mediocre in the ACC to get on a run and get into the top 50.
Butler Bulldogs - 10-9, 4-3 Horizon, RPI: 102 - Butler suffered a crippling 76-69 home loss to Cleveland State Friday night, but the Vikings then lost on Sunday to throw this league in further disarray. Milwaukke leads at 6-1 (their only loss was to Butler), but Cleveland State, Valparaiso, Youngstown State (whom Butler beat on Sunday), and Butler are all right there. The winner of the regular season gets to host the conference tournament and the top two teams only need two wins to get the auto-bid, so a lot is at stake here.
