2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0
Ogden, UT


Utah is up 10 on powerhouse UCLA in the first half.

In the end, it'll be the same rhetoric.

We played a tougher schedule than BYU, and just couldn't quite compete in the PAC.


True, not yet.

The same rhetoric from down south, we just can't compete with Utah so scoreboard doesn't matter but Sagarin and RPI does.

@Riddles: "The Utes have NO CHANCE of beating UCLA today"

Vegas has UCLA a 1.5 point favorite over Utah.

Halftime: Utah 36 UCLA 26

It could be worse for UCLA, if Wright didn't uncharacteristically miss layups in transition.

Utah plays some great defense, that's why they've been in every game even when shooting horribly. Can you say the same for BYU? When they struggled shooting BYU was blown out, even by LMU the worst team in the WCC.

Hyrum, UT

Can't you kids quit bantering back and forth about the Utes and Cougars for even just a little while? It gets old after awhile and proves totally nothing... nothing at all!

The Utah-UCLA game is on right now and the Utes are off to a great start leading by 10 at the half. Let's enjoy the game and hope they can keep it going in the 2nd half.

It would be awesome for the program to beat a nationally ranked team.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

Hmmm, looks like there's not much to all the Y fans' wishful predictions.

But cheer up, cougs. As Utah improves, so will your precious RPI!

Draper, UT

Nice win Utes!

Good to see different players stepping up on the offensive end when they needed it, especially Ogbe off the bench. Need to work on breaking the press. These last two games showed much improvement on the offensive end and still plenty of room to get better.

The Riddle in the dark for the day...who coined the phrase "never say never?"

Winning games in this conference is hard, even for the top teams. Every coach in the PAC 12 says it (football and basketball), and they mean it. Arizona has had some tough conference games.

Good to see those kids who have worked so hard celebrate a tough win!!!

Go Utes!!

Bountiful, UT

To all you negative UTE fans our little Utah basketball team just chewed U up spit U out and stomped on U!!! Go UTES! Thanks Coach K for bringing life back to the Huntsman Center!

Hyrum, UT

Big wins today for both Utah and BYU. Quality basketball is alive and well in our state.


Great win for Utah. Very good things are happening up on the hill. Nice to sweep the PAC-12 So. Cal teams. Keep up the great job Utah!
