Part of ASU's "ice cold shooting" has to do with the Utes blocking a quarter of their shot attempts. Even though he doesn't have any points, Dallin is really taking it to his big brother, and has helped set the tone for the rest of the team. Love this intensity defensively, and fast, but smart play offensively. Keep this up this half and into the Rocky Mountain Rematch next week!

Very nice dominating win.

Let's get Colorado, then do some damage on the road.

Go Utes!!

Utah just dominated from the get go. I thought we would win but this was a big blowout against a top 30 team. Great win!

Go UTES!

Outstanding game played by the Utes tonight and fun to watch the Bachynski brothers battle it out. Dallin got the best of the match up this around. LOL!

Wright is an absolute beast!

Congratulations Utah!!

Sure leaves you wondering when my Sun Devils can knock off the number 2 (at the time) team in the nation and then go out and loose the next two games to Colorado and Utah. Congrats on the win. These two loses could take ASU out of the NCAA tourney and into an NIT bid. Better get things done with Stanford next.

Good win Utah.

Good. Every Utah win now puts BYU one step closer to the big dance. We need that loss to not look so terrible. Thanks for the help!

Oh, baby! What a sweet win that was. Utah dominated from start to finish.

And I think it is important to note that the team that barely escaped Utah with a 4-point win in overtime absolutely crushed Colorado by 27 last night.

This Ute squad is a good team. They have absolutely been in every game they have lost this year except UCLA on the road. Only home losses have been by 2 and 4 points in overtime.

Now let's get CU next Saturday and pick up a road win to finish out the regular season.

To all those BYU fans that want a rematch with Utah I would gladly have them play again, because the outcome would still be the same. A Ute win.

Huge win over a solid team. There we go Utes!

Nice win by the Utes. I'd like to see them win 2 of their final 3 regular season games to get to 20. I think Colorado at home is a decent possibility but getting one on the road from either Cal or Stanford will be a tougher deal.
NCAA is pretty much out of the question unless they get to at least the semifinals of the Pac 12 Tourney, but with a few more wins I wouldn't be shocked to see an NIT game played at the Huntsman Center. That's improvement Utah fans should be proud of.

Still funny how many byu fans run to the Utah articles (win or lose)....Even funnier is how many comments in the first few pages of the Gonzaga article mention Utah. Not too hard to psychoanalyze this rivalry.

Great win over a top 30 team!

@Joe
You welcome but too bad Gonzaga isn't helping you much by losing at San Diego.

I see one out of the first twelve comments from a BYU fan on this article. That's extreme, or funny? You must not know Chris B. or his many monikered incantations.

BTW Utah's rival is actually the next game, the Buffs from CO, not the Cougars from Provo. Ute fans are so done with the mid-majory, wacky-indie, West Coast Church League school...remember?

Congratulations to the Utes on an impressive victory!

Great win by the Utes! Post season play is still possible if they win out their final games and make a strong showing in their conference tournament. I think they're very capable of doing it. From a Cougar fan, Good luck the rest of the way from here on out!

Great win.

Go Utes!

Nice win for the utes but I have to say that ASU seemed to be on a different planet and looked like a grade school team. It didn't have as much to do with utah but they seemed to be uninterested and didn't want to be there. None the less still a good win. ASU certainly hurt their chances at the NCAA tonight.

But seriously folks!

Good thing they were spotted 10 games at home in the preseason or there would be no way to get 20 wins this year. BYU was their only win with a sos over 200. Might make a difference in tournament seeding in the CIT.

congratulations utes and ute fans... That was a dominating win over a pretty good team... In fact I was surprised... if only the team could play that well on the road y'all ight have been dancing this year.

While I am impressed I really don't see the utes getting very close at all to a pac12 tournament championship despite what the coach says.
