A .500 Pac-12 record would be awesome. Winning out would definitely put them in the post season.

Coach K has this program headed in the right direction, and the team works hard and competes hard every game.

Go Utes!!

Good luck utes. Should be a good game tomorrow. Utah is strong at home so I wouldn't be surprised to see Utah come out on top of this one.

Picture speaks a 1000 words. U will end up 7-10 at best but may make it to the CIT or WCT tourney with luck. SOS will be a very important factor inseeding teams and with a SOS close to 200 it wil be tough.

Good luck to the Utes tonight in what will be a great showdown with the Aztecs.

Excited for the game tonight. I love the Sunday games. Great way to spend time with friends and family.

I hope our fans act like fans and show up and support these pac12 utes.

Go utes!

Beat asu!

@ Ute buster

I disagree. I think Utah has a fair shot to reach .500, and I think they'll climb to at least 8-10. (7-10 would be impossible unless one of the remaining four games gets cancelled). Utah's SOS is currently 98, and that is guaranteed to rise since the remaining four games are against teams ranked in the top 50 (Sagarin).... Another guarantee is that Utah will not be invited to the CIT because that tournament exclusively invites mid-major teams.

I highly doubt that our top 3 players struggle again for the 2nd straight game at home. Look for a Utah win today and it could even be a double digit win.

Um...Sun Devils.

There will absolutely be a smaller crowd, but it is what it is.

The crowd that is there will be loud and give the players a boost.

Go Utes

After tonight we for sure will get the attention of everybody and go to the big dance because of our pretegous home record.

Go Utes!

Chris, I'm a Mormon who agrees with you. I went to church this morning and am going to the game tonight! If the game was the same time as church I may have a tough decision, but thankfully I don't have to choose! Obeying the sabbath is different for all people and the only thing that matters is what's in your heart.

See ya at the game Chris B

Chris B. Many true Utah fans have convictions that will cause them to choose not to be in attendance. Those who have this conviction and make this choice are no less true fans.

Yeah, that's what I meant. Where did "Aztecs" come from?? LOL!

ESPN broadcaster: "ASU seems uninterested in this game." It seems that ASU did not consider this a tough game. Pretty obvious by the way they are playing. They look like a elementary school team and not because of how u is playing.

Here's the harsh reality...

Most Ute fans and casual observers will do the obvious with this game... not attend, not watch it on television and check out the score tomorrow morning.

So much for prestigious PAC12 Sunday games in our peculiar demographic.

Resistance is futile. LOL

To all basketball fans in Utah (Not just Utah fans)

Delon Wright is special! You really need to see him in person. Last night he lead all players in assists, steals, rebounds, scoring, and tied Arizona State's 7'1" in blocked shots. He led in scoring by taking 7 shots (and making them all) and 8 for 10 free throws! That folks is special!
