Loveridge disappears in another big game on the road.

I said we would finish between 4 and 6th in the PAC 12 before the season.

I was right on with that guess

And the doubters said we would be 12th.

Now lets go win the tournament

U can't rebound. LOL Stanford has a 15-3 advantage on offensive ebounds.

But seriously folks!

Offensive rebounding kills the utes on the road. They improve their road record to 4-31 in 4 years in the pac 11.1. At least we have UVU and BYU to represent the state.
Wright lays an egg on national tv.

Open up cold and finish the same way. NO TOURNEY FOR u. The worst preseason schedule and all at home was their undoing. Someone forgot to tell Chris Hill and CK that half of the conference games are on the road.

Thanks CB for the prediction ...again. Utes lose again on the road.

At least BYU can beat Stanford...

Utah is now 10-1 when 4 or more players score in double digits.

Turnovers and 2nd chance points resulted in a lose in a winnable game on the road.

Just like BYU football, Utah basketball was 28 points from an undefeated season.

Arrrrrgggghhhhhh! Another blown opportunity to get off a potential game winning shot.

Gotta give the team props for coming back from 11 down late in the 2nd half but it so disappointing to keep losing games this way.

Yes. But we still have enough depth to compete, not enough depth to win. That's where I think Chapman will come in next year.

No playoff for U

Chock up another moral victory for the Utes.

Only under the crimson bubble is 8th considered finishing between 4th and 6th.

Bummer,

Let's get ready for the tourney. This team is playing well, and peaking at the right time, so let's hope they can rise to occasion and make a deep run.

CB,
U won't even finish 6th. Wrong again. Only teams with a better than .500 conference record will be in the 4-6 spots. U will finiah 8th or 9th. Nice try though.

Wow, what a game. Tough to lose these heart breakers but this team will mature from the experience they gained through the season. Next up, the Pac-12 tournament and the Utes are ready to get after it.

Let's get it done, UTAH!!

Stanford was horrible - begging the Utes to win this game by missing 7 or 8 free throws down the stretch. The Utes just didn't have what it takes to accept the offering.

Utah is currently in 8th place with the result of other Pac 12 games pending, one of which could move them up 1 spot. If Cal loses to Colorado, they will move up to 7th, as Utah has the tie breaker over Cal, having won their only match up. Oregon could also end 9-9 in conference play if they lose to Arizona (which is likely), but Oregon has the tie breaker over Utah, having won the only head-to-head matchup. So the best Utah could finish is 7th, which is not between 4th and 6th place. Close, but not quite. Still better than 12th though, which I didn't predict. I predicted they would finish in the bottom half of the Conference. And I was right. I do think they will win their first game, and earn the right to play the number 1 or 2 seed (depending on if they finish 7th or 8th). I don't think that 2nd round game will go so well for them though.
