Someone else needs to be as aggressive inside as Onwas is. As strong and athletic as Prince is, the guy just can't make free throws. Hopefully he spends as much time at the free throw line this summer as he does in the weight room.

A other great PAC 12 game against another likely tournament team.

We are starting to get some bubble talk. Coach k has the guy peaking at the right time.

Utah may make the PAC 12 a seven bid league if we win the tournament like coach k plans on doing.

I'm going to the tournament to watch our boys bring home a dance ticket!

Show up muss!

Lets get this win utes!

Utes up late in second half.

Looks like we may be getting a HUGE road win.

Onward and upward

West Jordan, UT

They need to start making free throws if they want to get this one.

And the prestigious PAC 12 utes get a huge road win over a tournament team to go above .500 in the second best conference in the nation. That is a big accomplishment.

I've said it before and I will say it again. I love my PAC 12 membership!

The naysayers said we would be last in the PAC 12

And that we couldn't beat byU

And that we couldn't beat ucla.

And that we couldn't destroy asu

And we couldn't beat cal on the road.

And now we can't win the tournament?

Utes WIN!

Dancing is looking more and more likely each game.

Naysayers, where are you now?

Onward and upward to PAC 12 glory!

I am so happy!

Sloppy would be an understatement. Two teams that can barely make it to 60 points.


Jon Crispin said it right: phantom "fouls" keeping the Bears in the game down the stretch, confusion on timeouts, missed 5 second call, worst officiating down the stretch EVER. Dave Hall is THE worst college official I've ever seen. Good to see the team keep composure and come away with it in the end, though.


Great game, Utes! Despite some very questionable calls against them in the end, Utah hung in there and won a big game against a good Cal team on the road. Let's carry this over to Saturday at Stanford, then on to Vegas.

Go Utes!

East Salt Lake City, Utah

Wow! All night we couldn't shoot free throws and make shots... down the stretch we couldn't miss free throws and a huge 3 point shot by Taylor to put Utah up for good.

Good win! Currently in 6th place in the PAC-12. Now lets close out with a win over Stanford.


Layton, UT

Great coaching and clutch free throws to close the game. Clutch threes by Taylor to keep them in it down the stretch. Good defense on Delon under the basket but he found other ways to be effective. Great all around player.

Salt Lake City, UT

Good work by the Utes; but, man, watching them play the last 90 seconds or so of any close game this year is like going to the dentist for root canal work.

Still, its the big picture that matters and the arrow is pointed in the right direction.

A W is a W, especially on the road.

Congratulations to the University of Utah on their 20th win on the season!

Go Utes!

Uh oh! Cougar fans are not going to like this. Utah wins on the road against a very good Cal team who probably will go to the NCAA tournament.

A road win against Stanford this weekend will put Utah back in the discussions for an at-large bid.

The Pac-12 tournament will be exciting this year. Go Utes!

Layton, UT

Delon is the best player in the state...and in the wcc.

Palo Alto, CA

At large prospects for the PAC 12 took a huge hit tonight with ugly home losses by both Bay Area teams.

Provo, UT

Ugly but valuable win.

Ogbe and Fields need a little more playing time.

Loveridge & Delon need to work on their outside shooting during the off season.

Way to grind it out Utah! This was a big one.

Go Utes!

Great win, Utes over a likely NCAA tournament team on the road. We are now guaranteed at least .500 in the Pac-12. Let's do to Stanford what Colorado did last night and get another road win over a likely NCAA tournament team.

Ogden, UT

Too bad if Utah doesn't make the big dance; it seems they are quite likely the best basketball team in Utah right now. Perhaps only Weber State or UVU make the dance---maybe BYU. If they played head on head, bet Utah would make hay of all of them
