Congratulations, Utes (from a BYU fan and Utah alumnus). Hope you go deep in the NCAA.

Go Big Blue!!!

Nice job Utes! It has been a long time coming.

Although I only saw them 3 times on TV this season (Thank you pac 12 channel and direct tv) I love them.

What a game!

J Love was clutch and JD was amazing. The Seniors deserve to go out with a bang. Hope Cedric Martin is OK.

Look out Oregon or whoever they play.

Go Utes!

This just shows how truly terrible the PAC 12 is.

Hopefully they keep it rolling! It'd be hard to see no teams from Utah in the big dance this year!

Felt like old times tonight, what an awesome game.
Crazy to think that with as tough as things have seemed for Utah the last couple of seasons, they've still managed to beat every team in the conference at least once in that time span with the exception of Arizona and UCLA. If they can get by Oregon again, Utah will get a chance to whittle that down to one. Not bad considering Utah's in it's darkest days of the program - or should I say WERE in their darkest days.
Love the continuing progress ... Go Utes!

It's gotta be the White Sweater!!! Big Rick is watching over this programs recovery...One day at a time...

There is no disappointment for me...win or lose. We're playing on house money since the tourney started. As much as it would make my 2013 to make the championship game, it's a long shot...but, what if!!!

Lots of freshman minutes logged last night.

Go Utes!!!

PS. Is it duck season in Utah? Or McAllen Texas? Missing a few regulars on this board...

Congrats Utah on a good win.

I have to swallow some crow pie and admit, you have the best basketball team in the state right now.

Good Luck in the semi's

Win or lose tonight (Friday) night, or any night, this run of 4 straight wins hopefully shows that Larry Krystkowiak is getting Utah's men's basketball team use to winning. Congratulations! But, as always, in any competitive effort, one learns one can never rest on one's laurels. And concentration at the task at hand, and not the anticipated next task (i.e., game), is always paramount. Not just to give lip service to that concept. But to execute in the task at hand indeed.

This hopefully continues to become the "first shall be last", but more importantly, "the last shall be first", if grit, determination, and yes, even a bit of lucky, or luck enhanced by adroit execution, continue to prevail!

Fantastic! Hope their run continues well into the NCAA. Way to go! (From another Coug fan).

Great win for the Utes! Congratulations!

Bad win for the conference. This win likely takes one more PAC12 team out of contention for the NCAA.

Amazing run, Utes! From a diehard Cougar fan, I'm tickled to death to see the phenomenal transformation you've gone through. Absolutely amazing and beautiful to watch! Here's hoping you will win it all. I no longer doubt that you can after watching the highlights of your last few games.

@nwcoug,

Must the cup be always half empty, or are you just so incapable of seeing things from a positive perspective? Rather than "This just shows how truly terrible the PAC 12 is", couldn't it be that it shows how good and very competitive their teams are?

Maybe our cougs can learn something from the Utes this year as far as playing with heart and soul to the end. Or perhaps they did but just didn't have it in them this year.

Well, good luck next year Cougs! And keep rolling Utes!

Good job Utes. Congratulations. Good luck tonight.

There, I said it.
