I said it before and I will say it again, we have shown we can play with top 25 teams several times, only team in Utah with a top 25 win and the FIVE bet rpi wins of anyone in the state. Thy said, we have the best chance of dancing.

That's right, add up the best wins that byu, usu, and weber have and we have FIVE better wins than any of them!

PAC 12 and Utah proud!

Go utes! Beat cal tomorrow!

After blowing a big lead late in the game Utah finally figured out how to make plays down the stretch. Good win!

Go UTES!!

Sammyg- well, 3 in a row, and actually winning a conf. tourney game. I'm wondering if USC is now the .2 in your little 10.2 drama?

Great win for the Utes tonight. They shot 39% and still were able to pull out the win, which they haven't been able to do this year. They are learning to win even when the shots aren't falling. 18/21 from the line played a crucial role in that happening. Congrats Utah, looking forward to tomorrow night vs Cal
Go Utes!!!

Looks like coach switched from "play to win" to "play not to lose" down the stretch.
Luckily, nobody told DuBois. Thanks for this one, Jarred!

You'd do well to quit directing every first comment of yours to fans of every other school in the state. I'm getting more and more convinced that you're really not a Ute fan at all, but are instead just trying to give the real Ute fans a bad name.

How did the Coug's do against the Toreros? Oh that's right...

On a brighter note.. The Utes had their ups and downs for sure but in the end it's College basketball, you've got to know that it's going to go down to the wire. Love it!

Great game. Is this team finally falling together? Looks like it. Now the Runnin' Utes face Pac-12 Player of the Year Allen Crabbe. Hottest team right now are the UTES. GO UTES!

Great game for the Running Utes! Three in a row. This one may have been gift wrapped, but we'll take it. The Utes had some pretty good shooting tonight. They really seem to have peaked at the right time.

Keep up the great work! GO Utes!

What a way to end the season! Keep it going!

I grew up in Bluebell and went to school in Altamont. Miss the Basin. Go Utes!

Utah's improvement over the season, especially in the last three weeks has been impressive, BYU's degradation over the last three weeks equally unimpressive. Utah on the way up, BYU on the way down.

Yeah, baby!

One game at a time, guys.

GO UTES!!!

I happy the Utes got the win tonight. It was nice to avenge the loss to USC earlier this season.

USC made some serious runs in the second half but each time the Utes hit some critical shots to keep the lead. They have learned to close out games which is something they couldn't do at the start of the season.

It has helped that they have played some tough competition through conference play but I hope these wins at the end of the season can give the young players some confidence going into next year. It should help out with some recruiting as well.

Good luck tomorrow night against Cal.

Go Utes!
