That's what can happen sometimes when you play a team that lives and dies by the
3s. Sometimes they bury you by making them, sometimes they bury themselves by
missing. Tonight, especially in the second half, they were making them and
buried us.2 things came to my attention:1-I think it's great
that the officials can look on the monitors and check for flagrant fouls. But
it's kind of silly that when they do see it on there, they still allow the field
goal that the fouling team shot AFTER the foul was committed.2-Arizona
lacks sportsmanship. Having a starter take the ball down with under a minute
left in a blowout game and attempt a 3 with 28 left on the shot clock (and brick
it) and then go to the bench with nothing but laughs and congratulations from
his team is a poor display.But time heals all wounds, and Saturday
we host an Arizona State team that might almost be in as bad of shape as us. Go
Man, Arizona was hot on those 3 pointers. That put the game out of reach. Nice
hustle by the Utes today.
Well, it is what it is. I'm glad Storey will be getting Jiggy's minutes
now ... we may as well get him as much experience as possible going into next
year - even if the experience results in losses this year (which it obviously
will most or all of the way from here out).
It just keeps getting uglier and uglier for the Utes. Without Jiggy Utah has
little chance of winning another game this season.
