Wow, what a great opportunity for the Utes. They get to go up against one of
the nation's best and most storied programs playing in a real college
conference tournament.In the meantime, the team from Provo plays
against the likes of Portland State or San Francisco in the high-school gym
conference. Dang, it must be sad to be a Cougar fan.
Very telling, Still. Your team is enjoying its best season in years, just
finished a thrilling victory over UW, and all you can think about is BYU.
I read the comments without reading the article, not intending to comment but to
see which comments had to do with the ever present BYU obsession by u fans.
Well, at least the first commenter makes my point. Nice win by the
way for utah.
Joe Lunardi from ESPN has Utah as one of the first 8 teams currently out.A win over a top 5 Arizona program would jump us past most of those
teams and with a very good chance of dancing.A win today and we may
be in. Two wins and we are for sure in.But coach K plans on winning
3 in a row and guaranteeing we're in.The wcc may have 1 team
in, the same as uvu's conference in the WACThe pac 12 and big
12 are projected to be 6-7 each.Puts the two leagues into proper
comparisonUtah 68Arizona 65Go UTESOnward and upward to March madness and Pac 12 glory
Two and a barbeque for the Utes.
A win today is possible for the Utes, but they have to play better than they did
against Washington. Especially down the stretch.
First game against Zona, it was the offensive boards that killed us. Second
game, it was missed Free Throws. Lots of things have to go right for us to win
this game, but we can do it.
Will this be on TV and Radio? Please share? thanks.
A win against arizona would (I think) put them into the tourney. Go Utes, make
our state proud (from a coug fan).
Cinci Man, PAC-12 Networks at 3:00 Eastern. I'd imagine ESPN 700 radio will
have audio commentary, you can find it on their website.
The game is televised on the Pac12 network. If you have Comcast, you can stream
it to a computer.
Got to feel sorry for the utes:Arizona 94Utes 58Way over their heads.
from fox sportsUtah: The Utes still have quite a bit of work to do,
even after their first-round win over Washington on Wednesday, and a win over
top-seeded Arizona Thursday afternoon could be just the victory they need to
punch their first ticket to the dance in the Larry Krystkowiak era.
worf,If Utah loses by as much as you say I'll never post on a
single des news article for the rest of my lifeUtah has a very good
chance at winning.And then we'll be dancing.And
guess what? If we get in we could be the team that bounces byu OUT.LOL
Congrats to the Utes. I love this team and what Coach K is building. He has
made me a fan and I claim the Utes as my second favorite PAC-12 team. I can see
the Utes being a perennial contender beginning next year. Coach K is doing
things right.I would love to see the Utes make the NCAA's. I
believe they are better than Colorado, Stanford, ASU, and even Oregon right now.
To do that though, they will have to beat my beloved Wildcats, for which I have
been a fan since the early 70's. I know they can do it even though the
Cats are much better at this point in time. I am definitely going to be rooting
for my Cats, but should they fall I sure hope the Utes can take it the rest of
the way. Good Luck!
@Worf I'm curious as to why Utah who hasn't lost by more than 8 to
Arizona is suddenly going to lose by 36. Am I missing something? Or has every
player but our walk ons been suspended because that is the only possible way we
lose by that score.
worf - In your dreams.AZ is favored by 7.5 points. Hardly the 36
point spread you are predicting.
Good win over UW!!! Good luck against Arizona today!!! Coach K is doing an
incredible job on the hill, keep it up!!! Onward and Upward!!!Go
Cougs!!! Rise Up!!! Dedicate the rest of the season be it NCAA or NIT to KC and
make him proud!!!
blowout city, bye Chris B
Rough game. I hope they can regroup and make it respectable in the second half.
13 points in a half LOL, Pac 12 glory right
Wright better not get his eyes too big about the NBA, he is no where near an NBA
player, Loveridge is a joke
Down 35 with 4 minutes to play! Will CB's self-imposed lifetime ban come to
frution?This, my friends, is drama. It's what March Madness is
Wow. Bottom of the barrel. Leaning on a conference and nothing more. Nothing but
moral victories for the Utes. It does no good to be a "big boy"
conference when you're the wimp who gets smashed in the mouth everyday.
Utes take "getting blown out" to a whole new level.
Utes set Pac-12 record for fewest points in a tournament game. Yep, Utes are
setting records alright.
At least it wasn't a 36 point loss...
tanman, I'm a ute,Where did you guys go? And you were saying
what? Worf almost nailed it.
Only 4 more points! 4 More points and Chris B would have banned himself for
life! 4 more points!Onward and upward to Pac 12 glory!
I just finished reading all of the negative and classy commnents about
BYU's 11 point loss to Gonzaga. I am not a slow reader it is just there
were so much negatiivity to wade through my brain needed the rest. I can think of a lot of classless and well deserved comments to make about the
record setting beatdown that the utes just got but I will simply let the
scoreboard speak for itself. I didn't get to see the game due to work but
39 points in an entire game seems odd, even for u.
I just thought of a silver lining for the Utes, with the NBA draft projected to
be so deep this year and Wright having had such a disappointing showing against
UA maybe he will reconsider coming out and return to the Utes for at least one
more year!!!Go Cougs!!! Rise Up!!!Good luck to the Utes in the
