Go Utes! I wish I was there to watch it in person! That was a great game against a good team!

Great way to finish the season for the team, the fans, and particularly the seniors players.
You can certainly see the growth of this team from the beginning of the year until now, which adds a ton of credibility to the job Coach Krystowiak is doing.
I'd love to see this team get at least one win in the conference tourney, two would be a tall order (would most likely face a hot Cal team). But then again, Utah did just knock the number one team in the conference off their perch!
The future on the hill looks bright. I'm not predicting things to be too different next year, but hopefully they'll see some more progress and then add a couple more pieces to the puzzle and be a true conference competitor by the 2014-15 season.
Proud of the guys today ... Go Utes!

Great job Utes.

Utes beat at least 2 tournament teams this year (Oregon and Colorado).

Not sure that any other team in the state beat any teams that will play in the big dance.

Great game Utes! Got up by 14, gave a little, but broke Oregon attempts to come back. Well done! Nice to see everything coming together for next week's tournament!

This is a good victory for Utah! Good job guys! Great way to finish off the season! Whether Oregon has been a legit top 25 team the last half of the season, Utah was able to get a victory against a ranked opponent. They just need to build on this momentum for next year! Go UTES!!!

Great win, way to close out the season! At the start I thought Utah could pull off a 16 win season.

Utah was soundly beaten in 6 of the 30 games, all were PAC-12 games. In 7 of 8 games we lost in the final minutes, 3 of which we blew double digit leads deep in the second half.

So finishing 13-17, with 11 new players, shows that overall we are on the right track.

Go UTES!!

Obviously Oregon choked, looking past the Utes. But Utah took advantage of it. I can understand why every team Utah played would be tempted to look past them. Eventually those attitudes catch up with you. What was the attendance figure for the game.....anyone know?

No that's not obvious at all. What is obvious by your weak "attendance" smack your team choked last night and now you're even more bitter today.

My, my, my- the haters are going to have a tough time with this one. All we've heard are comments about how Utah hasn't shown any signs of improvement over last year. Looking forward to the spin after this.

Good thing we weren't playing the mighty Toreros!

Great game. GO UTES!!
