Three of the four previous Utah-New Mexico games had gone into overtime, so it wasn’t too surprising when it happened a fourth time in the first round of the MWC Tournament. The Utes blew a nine-point lead in regulation but came up big in overtime as Luke Nevill, who led the Utes with 26 points and eight rebounds, made a dunk with 21 seconds left to give Utah the lead, then blocked Darren Prentice’s shot with eight seconds left as Utah won, 82-80.

Those were some great moments, all 10 of them. Nick Jacobson hitting that 3 is still one of my very favorite Ute basketball memories. It also was probably the last time a play was called on a last possesion of a game. Ya see, Boylen does not have a last possession play, Utah has lost over three dozen games due to this. Boylen's play is throw the ball in, dribble all over the place, whomever has the ball can't seem to find anyone to pass the ball to, and then a prayer is launched, sometimes not even at the right basket. Oh I long for the days of when "butter" was called.

In Boylen's defense, the Utes haven't had a quality outside shooter like Jacobson in quite a while.

BYU never seems to do very well in the MWC tournament.
