Wow, what a great opportunity for the Utes. They get to go up against one of the nation's best and most storied programs playing in a real college conference tournament.

In the meantime, the team from Provo plays against the likes of Portland State or San Francisco in the high-school gym conference. Dang, it must be sad to be a Cougar fan.

Very telling, Still. Your team is enjoying its best season in years, just finished a thrilling victory over UW, and all you can think about is BYU.


I read the comments without reading the article, not intending to comment but to see which comments had to do with the ever present BYU obsession by u fans. Well, at least the first commenter makes my point.

Nice win by the way for utah.

Joe Lunardi from ESPN has Utah as one of the first 8 teams currently out.

A win over a top 5 Arizona program would jump us past most of those teams and with a very good chance of dancing.

A win today and we may be in. Two wins and we are for sure in.

But coach K plans on winning 3 in a row and guaranteeing we're in.

The wcc may have 1 team in, the same as uvu's conference in the WAC

The pac 12 and big 12 are projected to be 6-7 each.

Puts the two leagues into proper comparison

Utah 68
Arizona 65


Onward and upward to March madness and Pac 12 glory

A win today is possible for the Utes, but they have to play better than they did against Washington. Especially down the stretch.

First game against Zona, it was the offensive boards that killed us. Second game, it was missed Free Throws. Lots of things have to go right for us to win this game, but we can do it.

Will this be on TV and Radio? Please share? thanks.

A win against arizona would (I think) put them into the tourney. Go Utes, make our state proud (from a coug fan).


Cinci Man, PAC-12 Networks at 3:00 Eastern. I'd imagine ESPN 700 radio will have audio commentary, you can find it on their website.

Salt Lake City, UT

The game is televised on the Pac12 network. If you have Comcast, you can stream it to a computer.

Got to feel sorry for the utes:

Arizona 94
Utes 58

Way over their heads.

Utah: The Utes still have quite a bit of work to do, even after their first-round win over Washington on Wednesday, and a win over top-seeded Arizona Thursday afternoon could be just the victory they need to punch their first ticket to the dance in the Larry Krystkowiak era.

If Utah loses by as much as you say I'll never post on a single des news article for the rest of my life

Utah has a very good chance at winning.

And then we'll be dancing.

And guess what? If we get in we could be the team that bounces byu OUT.

Congrats to the Utes. I love this team and what Coach K is building. He has made me a fan and I claim the Utes as my second favorite PAC-12 team. I can see the Utes being a perennial contender beginning next year. Coach K is doing things right.

I would love to see the Utes make the NCAA's. I believe they are better than Colorado, Stanford, ASU, and even Oregon right now. To do that though, they will have to beat my beloved Wildcats, for which I have been a fan since the early 70's. I know they can do it even though the Cats are much better at this point in time. I am definitely going to be rooting for my Cats, but should they fall I sure hope the Utes can take it the rest of the way. Good Luck!

@Worf I'm curious as to why Utah who hasn't lost by more than 8 to Arizona is suddenly going to lose by 36. Am I missing something? Or has every player but our walk ons been suspended because that is the only possible way we lose by that score.

West Jordan, UT

worf - In your dreams.

AZ is favored by 7.5 points. Hardly the 36 point spread you are predicting.

Rough game. I hope they can regroup and make it respectable in the second half.
