    SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) -- Andrew Bogut scored 24 points and grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds to lead Utah to a 69-58 victory over New Mexico Saturday afternoon.

    The victory was the 11th in a row for the Utes (16-3, 4-0 Mountain West), and their 16th straight home win over the Lobos since 1989.

    Bryant Markson added 14 points for the Utes, who held the Lobos far below their league-leading scoring average of 81.8 points per game. The Lobos (14-4, 1-2 Mountain West) shot just 37.3 percent from the field, compared to 62.8 percent for Utah.

    New Mexico played without its leading scorer, senior forward Danny Granger, who missed his second straight game following knee surgery, and lost its 24th straight road game against conference opponents.

    Bogut scored 18 of Utah's first 19 points, and the Utes trailed only once -- for 34 seconds early in the second half.

    The Lobos cut a 14-point lead to eight on a 3-pointer by Troy DeVries with 4:44 left, but the Utes never let them get any closer.

    DeVries led New Mexico with 19 points, including five 3-pointers. He also had four steals, tying a career high.
