Now it's California Thursday. With little depth for Utah, these consecutive
tournament games are tough, but good to Utah for winning the USC game. I am
proud the way the Utes have played at the end of the season That's 3 PAC 12
wins in a row now). Utah has shown heart and pride. The program is in good hands
with Coach K jr.
I guess the Runnin' Utes are saving the best for last. Good game.
Great game, Utah! I hoped you could beat USC, but I wasn't sure. These
tournaments have added a new dimension to NCAA play. I was sorry to see my BYU
team lose but they weren't able to maintain their game all the way to the
end. (I am a BYU alum). Now, I can cheer BYU on if they play in the NIT and
cheer Utah if they go on and make the NCAA tournament. It has been a new
experience for both schools to play against tougher competition without the
super-stars they have enjoyed having on their teams. But it makes the game more
interesting when I don't know who may be the one to step up his game and
surprise someone!Good luck with California next. I know you can
beat them; your team has shown it has a little in reserve still to deliver to
Cal and then, on to winning the tournament!
It was an awesome win last night! lets bring our A game for Cal tonight.
I cant wait for tipoff!
Nice win; talk about back and forth. This tournament is soooo wide open I
wouldn't be surprised by any team winning it; including Utah. Nice to live
to fight another day. What were all the Haters saying yesterday? The Utes have
no chance. Where are they now? The Utes certainly have a fighters chance. Go
Great job, Utes!! Here's one diehard Cougar fan cheering wildly for you.
Hope you keep on rolling to the finals. Things are truly looking up for you
guys! Wish my cougs had a similar end of season success too but they
didn't. So sad! Seemed like they didn't have any fight left in them
in the end so, I guess it's wait till next season again.Good
luck, Utes! And go Cougars, if you make it to the NIT!
3 wins in a row.3 more til the dance!GO UTES
I thought shot selection was much better last night than it has been throughout
the year.I thought the team oriented defense was also better than
usualI seen an upset tonight if we do those same things!Utah 70Cal 65Can't wait for tip off
@BigsamoanThanks for the positive post and support. Nice to see that
from a BYU fan. Big ups to you Guy!
Very smart hire in Krystowiak. It's amazing what a team can accomplish when
they play as a team.
great win for kristko and the UTes! He is a great coach! I love the way the
team plays defense. They all play hard, and they are all unselfish. Give coach
a few years to recruit his own guys and they will be one of those teams that
gets to skip the first day of the tourney year in and year out.
"I asked Tony Jones who the best in state team was. He said Utah. He was
right." - Scott Gerrard, 1280 the Zone.
Kosta Fesenko, do you know how ridiculous that sounds? You schedule only one
Utah team and you lost to them... Now the U is the best team in Utah?
Pulleeze.I am happy to see the Utes advance... I have to say that I
expected it however, after 2 of the teams starters and primary players were
suspended for the game for violation of team rules.
I believe this win just qualified Dotson for a medical redshirt. This was a
"must win" game to ensure we might get an extra year with this talented
athlete. Great win for Utah!
How many games did we advance in the wcc tournament?
Nice Win!There is not a team in the Pac 12 that wants to face the
Utes right now. This game is winnable again tonight.Let's go
Congrats on the win. U will have your hands full with Cal tonight. Good luck!

Naval Vet"I believe this win just qualified Dotson for a medical
redshirt. This was a "must win" game to ensure we might get an extra
year with this talented athlete."A medical redshirt may be
granted an athlete who appears in fewer than 30% of his or her team's
competitions (with none coming after the midway point of the season), then
suffers a season-ending injury.Dotson's injury occurred in the
15th game of the season, so it was before the midway point, but since he played
in 10 games, the Utes would have to play 34 games for him to meet the "fewer
than 30%" threshold - in other words, the Utes would have to reach PAC-12
tournament final for Dotson to qualify for a medical redshirt.
@thebigsamoanMany thanks from a Utah fan. My heart was in my throat there
at the end. It looked like they were going to fumble away another win, but they
came through.Don't worry, BYU will be in the NIT. You've
got 21 wins and fans who will show up to the games where ever they are played.
Good luck and of courseGO UTES!
Seems like I ruffled a few feathers! LOL!
It doesn't matter if Utah is the worst team in the state or if they lose to
Cal, coach K deserves a lot of credit for coming this far after last season.
It's quite remarkable he has put the team in a position where they can
stick with anyone in the conference. If the Utes continue improving like this
they will be the best team in the state in maybe just a few seasons.
OK folks before we all get too excited let's remember that it was USC that
the Utes beat. They are equally as bad so let's not set the bar too high
and start chanting #1 here. A true test will be the next game, which Utah will
most likely lose.
But seriously folks! But seriously...
Rockwell:Thank you for correcting me.
