Utes basketball: Runnin' Utes upset No. 19 Oregon on senior night
“Seeing the correlation with some of our ceremonies, I’d like to think that maybe we can come up with a few more ceremonies in the future,” Krystkowiak joked.
The postgame vibe was strong. No one epitomized it more than Washburn and his journey into the stands where the MUSS, Utah's student section, sits.
“Those people in that section have been loyal to me and this program since I’ve been here. It seemed only right that I be loyal back. It seemed only right that I gave them their due credit and what they deserve,” Washburn said. “It still wasn’t enough for the appreciation I have for those people in that section and every section that has ever been filled in the Huntsman Center.”
Washburn and the Utes are now headed to Vegas and the conference tournament. They’ll face USC or Washington Wednesday at 7 p.m. (MST) at the MGM Grand Arena.
“We know that we’re better than (our record),” Washburn said. “And we know that we are going to go down to the tournament and we’re not going to back down from anybody.”
