STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Rosco Allen scored five of his 17 points in overtime after banking in the tying basket with 10.5 seconds left in regulation, and Stanford took advantage of many missed free throws to beat No. 21 Utah 70-68 on Friday night in the Pac-12 opener for both schools.

The Utes (11-3, 0-1) got one final play with 7 seconds left and Lorenzo Bonam drove into traffic and traveled.

Utah - the best free-throw shooting team in the conference coming in at 73.2 percent - missed four free throws in the final 18.9 seconds of regulation.

Brandon Taylor missed two with 1.8 seconds left after two misses by Jordan Loveridge with 18.9 to play. Loveridge missed two more with 2:27 to go in overtime.

Freshman Marcus Sheffield scored a season-high 17 points and Marcus Allen added 14 for Stanford (8-4, 1-0), which made 10 of its first 18 shots out of halftime to get back in the game.
