So proud of you utes. You increased your record to .450 and your RPI to 155. As your brother, consider this post a pat on your head

West Jordan, Utah

Great finish to the season guys! After all the two in a row talk, the Utes won four straight PAC 12 games down the stretch. Tonight's loss was a blow but it was obvious the Utes were out of gas.

I look forward to next year. Thank you seniors for your sacrifices for this team. It's a building process, but Coach K Jr. has injected positive energy into the program. That is well received here because the Utes have been in a dark hole for awhile. It's great to have a coach willing and capable of doing the dirty work.

Ouch. The slipper broke.

The bookies will still pay out based on Chris B's "mark it down" prediction, right? The actual score doesn't matter, just his prediction, correct?

Nice run Utes. Coach Krystko has turned the ship.

South Jordan, UT

The Ute team we have come to know through the year finally showed up.

San Mateo, CA

Tough...but thanks for the nice post-season ride! Hopefully they will build on this next year and improve further.

Springville, UT

The other day I said,

"I'm smelling Final Four. LOL
Exciting finish. Congrats to the Utes."

Little did I know that it would be the Final Four of your tournament and there you have it.

Another... moral victory!

Nice little run at the end of the season; with the season the basketball team had, it was nice to see them go out swinging.

Gilbert, AZ

Tough loss for the Utes, but at least they showed some fight in the second half.

Gotta love Bill Walton's fabulously stupendous over hype of the PAC 12, UCLA, and everything he talked about, unfortunately it was as off last night as Washburn's and DuBois's shooting.

-didn't know that #2 Duke had lost to Maryland
-didn't know that #5 Georgetown had lost to Syracuse
-didn't know that Kentucky's bubble may have been popped by Vanderbilt
-didn't know that UCLA's starting PG had broken his foot on the last play of the Arizona game

and most cluelessly,

-thought that Utah was shooting its first free throws of the game when the Utes had just shot free throws on the previous possession

Calling the Arizona/UCLA game the game of the millennium seemed a little over the top even for Walton.

Anyway, congrats to the Utes on a nice little run to end the season.

This little piggy had 2 conference tournament wins --> Utah
This little piggy had none --> BYU

Nice job Utah in the tourney. Way to represent the State. Are any of you from the state?

AZ Blue & Red
Gilbert, AZ

Good run at the end and looks like things are going to be much better in the future.

Cograts to the UTES!



"Another... moral victory!"

Yes, which is 2 more than your team in Provo got.

Salt Lake City, UT

Marked down.

Layton, UT

We got jimmered by Oregon. Now the haters will jimmer us on the comment boards for a while.
Thanks to the team and coach K for not giving up throughout the season. Go Utes.

Salt Lake City, UT

Congratulations for a nice run for a team with no in-state wins.

Kaysville, UT

So where is ChrisB when the Utes lose? She talks so much smack but doesn't show her face when it bites her back. Congrats to the Utes for showing strong in the tourney. But a few wins at the end doesnt mean you are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Honestly, the Utes won because USC and Cal thought they would be a cake walk and didnt bring their A game. there is no proof otherwise. Lets see what happens next year. Good luck to all the teams in Utah. Now its time for spring camp and all the smack talk between now and fall camp! Go Cougs!

Congratulations to the Utes. Finally they played some basketball this season.

Since you like to throw darts, here's a question for you: "Did the mighty Utes get a winning season, you know, reach .500?" No! But USU did and so did BYU. So the Utes are not one of the best two teams in the stste once again. They happened to be "too little, too late." (True moral victory, no less and no doubt.) But we're getting used to that. Enjoy once again the PAC 12 Basement (P12B).

West Jordan, UT

Going to ignore all the haters here this morning and simply give a big congrats to the Utes for going farther than anyone could have imagined.

For this team to make the final four of the Pac 12 tournament, with the likes of Arizona, UCLA and Oregon (ALL of which have been ranked in the Top 25 at some time during the season) is a major accomplishment. Also, first #10 seed to make the semi's of the Pac 12 tourney.

As Washburn said after the Oregon win last Saturday, "We're going to go to Vegas and make some noise." Which they did.

Something to build on for next season. Great job, guys!


Nothing left in the tank last night. The energy from the Cal game carried them five minutes into the game, and something in them sparked a comeback to cut it to 8 in the second, but there was not enough left to match the energy Oregon came with. Congrats to Oregon, a very good team, they should make a great finals showing and some strong NCAA tournament play.
