For all but two of Utah's six Division-1 basketball teams, the season is over.

KSL TV sports published this season's highlight reel of Utah's premier college clubs on YouTube on Sunday. This season, which has yet to end for the BYU Cougars and the Weber State Wildcats, featured a major winning streak from the Utah State Aggies in the preseason, the University of Utah's first Pac-12 conference tournament win and first back-to-back Pac-12 wins, and a major winning streak by Weber State near the end of the season. It also featured buzzer-beaters, blocked shots, bewildering fakes, thunderous slam dunks and a lot of smiles. Nearly all of the best moments can be seen on the video

BYU and Weber State are still rolling. BYU will take on the Mercer Bears in the second round of the NIT on Monday, and the Weber State Wildcats will take on the winner between UC Irvine, a team Weber has already defeated, and Oral Roberts on Wednesday.
