    I agree with Bill on Aaron Dotson. He was one of the highest rated recruits in the 2009 class, and unfortunately went into a bad situation at LSU that saw many of its best players transfer. He's shown a few great plays, particularly with some great assists, but hasn't put together a complete game. He's skilled, athletic and explosive enough to really force the issue and knock down a lot of shots with confidence.

    Ute basketball ready to be tested...

    Glad were not in the WCC...not many tests in that league/intramural situation.

    Considering U are 1-4 against the WCC in your last 5 tries, I'd say your right not much of a test.

    These dry spells in scoring make me crazy. The defense is doing what it always does in holding the ASU well under its average FG %, and the offense was doing well to find open shots, but then just stopped hitting them. I haven't any of the "vastly superior speed" ASU has that the Pac-12 analysts talked about, but Jahii Carson is definitely the best point guard we've played yet, and may end up playing the rest of the year. He looks a lot like Kemba Walker. Keep playing that tough D in the second half, and we'll see what happens.

    Poor Utes, lost a close one at ASU.
