Utes basketball: Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak taking a page from football, using coordinators
Utah tips things off with an exhibition game against Saint Martin’s on Nov. 1. The Utes host Evergreen State a week later.
“I like this pace. I feel like we’ve slowed things down and we don’t have to be so worried about cramming something in,” Taylor said. “I feel like we have more than enough time to implement and work on things over and over and over again until we get the concept down. I feel like that’s what we’re doing.”
FACILITY UPDATE: Utah athletics director Chris Hill said that architectural drawings for the new basketball training center will be complete by next month. Officials plan to kick off a fundraising campaign around the third week of November, put shovels in the ground in March, and work toward completion in the fall of 2015.
ON THE BEAT: Krystkowiak’s recent citizen’s arrest of an alleged bicycle and cellphone thief outside the Huntsman Center continues to draw praise.
“I think it’s a great thing,” Taylor said. “It’s always a positive thing to catch someone like that who is doing bad things.”
Hill noted that Krystkowiak showed his sense of humor by referring to himself as “your police detective calling” in a telephone conversation.
“He commands that kind of respect,” said Hill, who had plenty of kind things to say about the coach and the progress being made in the program.
