The house was rocking tonight! Thanks for showing up MUSS.

Lets keep this ball rolling and get back to the top half of the Pac 12 conference!

Joe Lunardi currently has 6 Pac 12 going to the big dance, the highest of ANY conference.

Win number 1,700 for the Utah program tonight! Puts them in the top 15 all time winning programs in the country.

The Big 3 really showed up tonight! Congrats to the team on a great win.

It was a fun game to watch and be at. The atmosphere was great. But, let's not get ahead of ourselves. Washington isn't a great team this year but rather a mediocre team. Progress is definitely being made but we have quite a ways to go.

The HC is a tough place to visit, as are all of the arenas in the PAC 12. Go Utes.

Congratulations on the win tonight. Let's make a run in the second half of conference play and take the momentum into the Pac-12 tournament.

Go Utes!

I need some help from one of you BYU fans. I'm very confused about one thing.

I was told by several of you that Washington's win over Utah last month in Washington was definitive proof that Washington is better than Utah. So applying your logic to today, Utah has just beaten Washington, therefore Utah is better than Washington, right?

Now you can see where my confusion lies. How is it that Washington is better than Utah, while simultaneously Utah is better than Washington? Am I living in a Twilight Zone episode? Or perhaps I'm trapped in some weird quantum state where there are two realities existing at the same time? Or do you guys just not know what you're talking about?

Help me....which is it?

Good win! Loveridge finally got out of a shooting slump, with a double-double (6-7 FG, 16 points, and 13 rebounds).

Go UTES!

Most important stat ... Utah won the rebound battle.
If Utah can keep doing that, they'll find themselves in a very good place at the end of the year.

I'm having a hard time falling asleep because I can't stop thinking how awesome the PAC-12 is. Can't wait til the NCAA tournament to get here. To watch 6 PAC-12 teams in the Big Dance is...words can't even describe it. Yes!

Hey, SammyY . . . give it a rest buddy.

Congrats on the nice win.
Just want to add that the only time I don't cheer on the Utes in basketball is when they play BYU. Have always enjoyed watching the Ute teams in the past. Good luck with the rest of the season.
Now, if we were talking football...... :)

Good win. World beaters at home, punching bags on the road! Win some road games and give me something to believe in!

That's how you finish games. Great game, Utes!

Samoan that is a perfect impression. Nice.

Actually was a decent win for Utah. They are a decent team at home. Too bad they have to go on the road for half their games. LOL

If they had played a decent preseason they might actually have a shot at making some type of post season appearance unlike the football team. Who knows, maybe the NIT will still come knocking.

Utes are definitely a better team in SLC than on the road. Congrats on beating a bottom half of the PAC12 team at home.

@Chris B - "Joe Lunardi currently has 6 Pac 12 going to the big dance, the highest of ANY conference."

U and I are different. I care more about whether or not my team goes dancing. I really don't care how many teams from my conference go dancing or bowling, if I'm sitting home.

@Brave Sir Robin - "I was told by several of you that Washington's win over Utah last month in Washington was definitive proof that Washington is better than Utah. So applying your logic to today, Utah has just beaten Washington, therefore Utah is better than Washington, right?"

You are right, just like if Utah played BYU in the MC. BYU would win and this would prove that the Cougs are the better team.
