And our quest for perfection and a Pac 12 conference tournament title begins

Utah 75
Washington 68

I may need to re-do my guess:

Utah 75
Washington 60

Taking it to Washington.

And my stay in vegas continues...

LOL What a beatdown.

Seriously - give us a challenge. Bring on Arizona!

Provo, Utah

Chris B - An eight point lead is NOT a beat down. Now is YOUR prestigious Ooooops win by 20+ that is a beat down.


I wonder if CJ still thinks his team has "been in control for the most of the game," or if Utah just "went on a run" again. CJ's a good player and I hope he has a long, successful career in basketball, but his interview with the Seattle Times came off as arrogant and sour grapes about being "snubbed" by the first all-conference team, but being selected for the second instead.

WOW 41 to 40
Wish I could watch.

West Jordan, UT

Well, there goes the lead. Unbelievable.

The Utes look awful while Washington looks like a completely different team in the 2nd half.

Salt Lake City, Utah

Loveridge handles the ball like a big man, and shoots 3's like one, too.

Come on Utes - we were playing so well. Lets get this done!

Utes win!

1 down. 3 to go.

Bring on the Wildcats!

Sandy, UT

Great win for the program. Looks like we're going to pull it out. Huge victory

Sandy, UT

A win is a win is a win is a win. Clutch shot by Tucker. Big time programs have guys make big time plays in big time games.

Saves the season. Still can dance

Cottonwood Heights, UT

You gotta love it baby! I love this team!

What a win!

Tucker's 3 was the dagger!

Go Utes!!!

Syracuse, UT

Nice game, Utes. Sounded like a good game to watch. Good luck in round two.

Congratulations to the Utes on barely pulling off the win against the 9th worst team in the league... enjoy the NIT.

GASP. Thanks for making it an exciting game at the end there guys. You pulled it out. Looking forward to an upset of Arizona.

Haha they barely beat the huskies and we totally blew out the Dons who are hugely good.

West Jordan, UT

Daviscoug - thanks for the well wishes. It's nice that some BYU fans can be gracious. Not so much with others.

Good grief, that was harder than it should have been based upon the great play in the first half. Nice to see them pull out a close game at the end.

Delon Wright is the man! And Tucker had the shot of the game.

Good Job Utes and Good Luck against Arizona tomorrow!

East Salt Lake City, Utah

Dakarai Tucker is the 3rd best player in the State!

1 Wright
2 Loveridge
2 Tucker
4 Swoop
5 Haws

Good win, but did we really need to let them take the lead twice before we closed them out?

Bring on Arizona!

Utah 72
Arizona 65

Salt Lake City, UT

After almost blowing it in the 2nd half, the Utes come away with a nice 8th vs 9th seed win.

Unfortunately, after that pushing Arizona to overtime, the Utes won't be able to catch the Wildcats napping.
