Utah Sports Ruckus: Jazz blowing it; March Madness; headlines; predictions; all things Utah sports
The madness of March is firing up with conference tournaments in swing and teams fighting for invitations and/or positioning in the NCAA Tournament. The Ute men faced the biggest week they’ve had in years and the BYU women and men kicked off their pressure-packed conference tournament runs.
All in all, it was a busy week for sports fans in Utah with the Jazz continuing their wild illogical ride, BYU baseball annihilating Utah and throwing a no-hitter, conference player of the year awards, high-profile high school championships, a win over a No. 1 team, Real Salt Lake starting its quest to repeat as Western Conference champs, Jabari Parker going off on North Carolina and the Lakers losing 142-94 to the Clippers.
Discover what’s up, where it’s at, who’s hot and what’s going down with your weekly dose of the Utah Sports Ruckus.
