A nice honor for a great player. Delon is the complete package. Fun to watch
too!Go Delon and Go Utes!
Congrats, Delon. You're a stud. Keep it up!Go Utes!
To be the best, you have to play the best! Congrats, Delon.
I agree. To be the best you have to play the best. Most average players could
do what wright has done playing the absolute weakest schedule in the entire
country. The PAC has been exposed as a lesser conference this past week and
will continue to lose it's prestige as the season rolls along. Wright
should continue to do well in a weak PAC conference.
Sweet! This kid deserves the award. He is such a great addition to this
Down under, the fact that Delon didn't win the award playing against a few
of the weakest teams in the country in non-conference play, but against much
better competition in a very competitive conference is a testament to his game
and ability to step his game up.Your opinion about the strength of
the PAC-12 is just that: your opinion. It isn't shared by any credible
rating services, which currently have the league rated as the 3rd best in the
country behind the B1G and Big XII, and ahead of the ACC, SEC and Big East. So
to diminish what a nice kid and great player accomplishes? Suspect.
Wright is a great player. Funny to see this down under try and make him anything
but this. When he played the mighty team from the south, he only scored 16 pts,
dished out 7 assists, grabbed 6 boards, and a steal n block as well. But hey,
judging the competition, he's not impressive although the only NBA player
in this state. Wright has been a big part of Utah's turnaround.
Most games he's playing from start to finish. Only wish we had him another
2 years. Nice job Wright! Go Ute's... Lets get ASU
Down under,Funny you mention weak conferences. The pac12 is #3 while
the wcc is #10.
@Down under: "I agree. To be the best you have to play the best. Most
average players could do what wright has done playing the absolute weakest
schedule in the entire country."Now spin how great 1984 was.
Anyone with eyes can see that Wright is a great player, the best in State!
His only weakness is outside shooting, in particular from the 3 point range.Actually according to ESPN you are wrong, as the season has gone PAC has
gone from a 4 tournament team to 6 tournament team. ESPN is predicting Stanford
and Cal as two more teams to make the tournament with the original four:
Arizona, UCLA, Colorado, and Oregon who took a "nose dive" in PAC-12
WCC BYU fans are talking smack about strength of conference. How adorable is
that?No wonder some of them are starting to switch sides..
Great honor for Delon. Wright has been a great addition to this Utah team. He
is a very complete player and his stat line proves it. Near the top in assists,
rebounds and steals is not easy to do no matter what league you are playing
in.The only thing I would like to see Wright improve on is his
outside shot. He isn't much of an outside threat at the moment. Hopefully
he can improve that with time. His brother plays in the NBA for Portland, so
his basketball intelligce is high and I'm guessing his brother can show him
how much work it takes to play at the next level.Go Utes!
Sorry Sorenson, but you need to do some research. Jason Washburn earned player
of the week honors several times over the last two seasons. But nice
"dig" at saying Utah didn't have players worthy of the weekly
honors. Not true buddy, Washburn did it. Congrats to Wright, he is an amazing
talent, you never know what he is going to do next.
Way to go Delon! Well deserved!I find it disappointing the Utes will
be playing on Sunday again. That is definitely NOT one of the welcome perks of
being in the PAC 12. I realize that I speak from an ever increasing minority but
what happened to reserving Sunday for the Lord and making it His day? I was
really looking forward to watching the Arizona game.
JD, sorry, but you need to check your own research. Jordan Loveridge was the
first Ute to win it for his December games against Idaho State and BYU. Wash
definitely played well enough to win it a few times last year, most notably on
the road trip to the Arizona schools, where he averaged 18 points, 14.5 rebounds
and 3 blocks, but it seemed in his biggest weeks, they would come up just short
in one or both games, which really hurts a guy's chances to win it. So he
If byu were in the pac 12 all of there players would gain this honor.
