2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0
Ogden, UT

Looking good utes.

PAC 12 win on the road lets get it done!

Sure beats playing Wyoming and Air Force and the rest of the little teams.

PAC 12 has SIX teams projected in dance. The second most of any conference.

When was the last time the Mwc or the wcc cupcakes had half the conference in the dance?

Never!

Difference I see so far in this game versus the other road games is the hustle plays. Taylor had one of his own backfire with an open 3 made by SC, but Karai Tucker just made a great one with the block and deflection off an SC player to give the Utes possession. If the hustle keeps up, this should be a win on the road. Finally.

We dominated USC like they were a wcc nobody!

Congratulations to the University of Utah Utes on their 17th victory of the season.

Plenty of basketball left this season. Good luck Saturday.

Go Utes!

Awfully early to be celebrating a win. Utes are looking good though.

Let's not get to excited about this game. USC is awful. The Utes are the better team and should win.

Utes did what they needed to do to get another league victory.

Good night and good luck against the Bruins.

Love with the dagger. Good game, Utes. Good to get the road monkey off their backs. Let's hope the floodgates are now open.

It's a tall order but if the Utes can beat UCLA on the road then things start to get real interesting.

I think Ute fans will get excited when this team gets their 36th victory in the NCAA tourney. Slight chance it happens this season... probably next season. Until then we can watch them get better.

I don't see too many fans that excited as of yet. But it could happen.

Go Utes!

I'd be a little careful about knocking MWC teams because you beat USC. USU beat these guys like a drum when the Ags played them.

Our Utes are trending up. Really liking what coach K is doing up on the hill!

GO UTES!!!

Utah beat the Trojans 84-66 in SLC....

Aggie from Nibley, Aggies beat them by 13 at home, Utes beat them by 18 at home (still not sure that meaningless buzzer beater that kept it from a 21 point game got off in time, but I digress), and by 8 in the Galen Center. No, USC is not a very good team, but any road win is a good win. Especially the first.

Whew! That was close. They certainly tried to give it away, didn't they?

Congrats to the Utes on their first Pac12 road win of the season!

Yes, I realize it was only a lowly USC team but, hey, at least we didn't lose to Pacific! Sorry about that, little brother.

I'm pretty sure the MWC had about 5 teams in the big dance a few years ago.

Alright, let's see if they can go 4-0 vs the So Cal teams Saturday.

Go Utes!

This was a nice homecoming for the trio of Taylor, Tucker, and Wright. Each one of them contributed a lot to the W, including Tucker's 2nd half burst, Taylor's floor management, and Wright's unbelievable moves around the basket. Wright and Loveridge are two of the best players in the PAC 12. It's fun to see Wright around the basket. He either scores or draws a foul. He's too smart to pick up an offensive charge, which so many other players get who are aggressive around the basket.

Great work, Utes! Now beat UCLA this Saturday.
