Good run to end the half.

Last home game of the season(unless we don't win the tournament like Coach K said we would). Been a great season. Thanks to all the players and coaches for putting Utah back on the road to March Madness glory.

Utah WILL beat our rivals today.

I don't see any chance we lose this rivalry game today.

If we win the tournament there will be SEVEN pac 12 teams in the tournament.

Second best conference in football to the SEC
Second best conference in basketball to the Big 12(with only 10 teams)

A bad loss here to Utah will almost certainly take Colorado off the bubble and into the CIT with Utah. A Utah win helps the Cougars, how sad for Crissy and the haters...

Total beatdown!

I called it.

there was just no way we were going to lose to our rivals.

Remember when we were going to finish last in the Pac 12

Remember when we were going to lose to byU?

Remember when we couldn't dominate ASU?

Remember when we had zero chance to beat UCLA?

And no we can't win the tournanment like coach K promised we would?

I like our chances!

Rivalry Beatdown!

Nice win. I'd love to see them get at least one of these last two on the road, and then win two in the conf tourney. That would be PAC 12 coach of the year material for Larry K.
Go Utes!

East Salt Lake City, Utah

Good win!

Nice to see Loveridge get out of his shooting slump. Hopefully he can continue his good form on the road next week. If so, Utah has a great chance of winning both games. Both Cal and Stanford are beatable but we need Loveridge and Taylor to both show up and help out Wright.

Great Game.
Take the hustle and defense from this game on the road with you.

Go Utes!

Way to take care of business Utes. Now lets go get one, or both, of these last 2.

Las Vegas, NV

Nice win!

Great all-around win. Contributions from everyone. Huge games from DW and J Love!

Go Utes!! On to No Cal.


Dominant second half after a slow start. Hopefully play like that second half will be what we'll see in these last two games and into the conference tourney. Sitting at #7, pending Oregon's game at SC, they still have an outside shot at 4th or 5th seed in Vegas, though NCAA at large hopes probably went out the window between the losses at Wazzu and in OT against UA.

Pocatello, ID

Nice win

A couple of W's on the road to end the season would generate some nice momentum for the Pac-12 tourney.

Go Utes!!

Great game. Great way to end the season at home. I hope they can grab one more on the road, and then have a run in the conference tourney.

Go Utes!

Really proud of Utes today. Excited to watch this team play next season.

Was there a game today? Does this mean the utes will go dancing now?

I'm considering going to the conference tournament, with the way the guys are playing.

And considering coach K has already said we'll win the tournament, I'd hate to miss what could be an incredible tournament

Lets show up and support our team Utes! Who's with me?

Coach K has done a tremendous job this year and should be PAC 12 Coach of the Year, but the California schools are always in the limelight. I expect that Utah will be at the top of the standings with 24-25 wins next year, and in the NCAA Championships. I just hope Coach K stays after next year.

We're going to the big dance! Pac 12 glory! Onward and upward!

Hey Goingdownthehill...

Hello....we have 2 more games and then the PAC 12 tourney...

Im excited to watch them next year as well...but not until this season is over.

Why not get excited about winning the Pac 12 tournament like we may do first before you get excited about next season?

Or get excited about beating theses last two teams?

There is a LOT of basetkball with March Madness very much a possibility if we just play our game

Onward and upward

Overton, NV

Congratulations on the win, Utes. Now you need to break through on the road. Good luck.

Frisco, TX

The good news - U out performed expectations by 4 or 5 games, and U had several close loses.

The bad news - I expect many college and NBA programs to try to lure Coach Kry away from the Utes over the next few months.
