Larry Brown's a classy guy that gives credit where it's due, and I can always respect that. I expect he'll help the program over the next couple years to become one of the best in their conference, maybe make a tournament as a very low seed, and bow out to give way to Jankovich, the assistant brought in from KU to (hopefully for SMU) bring them up as a national power. Their team plays good, sound defense, and works for high percentage shots, similar to what Krystkowiak is building at Utah. I can see why each of them thought this would be a good home-home series to schedule in the same season.

Once again the Utes take a step forward. This is tangible progress and further evidence the Utes are on their way back. The most exciting thing about it is that the Utes beat a quality opponent on a night when several of the starters were non factors.
As for Larry Brown, the guy looked like he has been spending to much time in Bob Barker's tanning bed. Josh Loveridge made a great hussle play and LB lost his cool.

At the game, they announced a technical with an ejection on an assistant coach. That coach didn't leave, so they gave two more shots for "an ejection violation". True, only 13 seconds remained in the game, but I didn't think that "no I will not leave" was an option.


SoonerUte, the announcement about an ejection was incorrect. Coach Brown got the first T, then the assistant got one, accounting for a total of four free throws, but there was no ejection. The ball was then inbounded and Loveridge was fouled, making the last six points of the game scored on free throws.
