@Y Grad/Y DadThanks Guy. I'm good with Utah's season.
Considering where they were 2 years ago, the NIT is quite an improvement. BYU
looks NCAA bound; and I look forward to a possible BYU-Gonzaga matchup in the
championship. I hope all is well with you and yours. @
Utes and Yale, the Cal game proved that this team can win those kinds of games
against good teams. Clutch free throws and then a dagger 3-pointer in the last
minute by Brandon Taylor was the breakthrough that they needed, not just in that
game, but to have a chance against the top teams in the conference tournament.
Stanford's ending was disappointing, but hopefully it was enough of a
teaching moment to play smarter in the future. First things first, take care of
UW in the first round rubber match between the teams. A missed buzzer-beater in
Seattle, followed up by a convincing home win, I like Utah's chances.
@WhoamIsir"One game from a tie for third place" Isn't
it sickening? Even though it's water under the bridge now, the fact that
the Utes didn't even get a shot off in the last 23 seconds, with a chance
to tie for third on the line, makes me sick to my stomach. How much longer will
the Utes come oh-so-close? A win, tie for 3rd. A loss, even if it's by a
single point, and they get bounced back to 8th. When will they see this, and
step up in the biggest moments? They need to start helping themselves. They
don't have any more feet to shoot off anymore!
Good luck Utes! Spokane Ute, good luck Zags, too, just not too much!
Great year. Sooo competitive. One game from a tie for third place! What a
difference two years has made. And the promise of next year. But before then
finish strong in the conference tournament and, presumably, the NIT.
Good season Utes. For obvious reasons, I don't see Utah getting past the
second round of the PAC tourney. Good luck in the NIT! (I don't mean that
in a derogatory way).
I'm pretty sure 8th is not "between 6th and 4th".
Utah's PAC 12 tourney hopes are SLIM (as in beating #9 seed Washington) and
NONE (as in knocking off Arizona).
Has anyone every lost soo many way close road games in one year? It is going to
be tough to make much noise in the conference tournament, but who knows?
