Good luck to all three Utah schools. Of the three, UVU is the most likely to be dancing next week.

Nice to see the State of Utah so well represented in these tournaments. It has been a while since we've had this many teams with real chances.

Best of luck to Utah, UVU, and Utah state in their quests for conference tournament perfection,

Joe Lunardi of ESPN has Utah among the top 8 teams currently outside the dance.

A win over top 5 powerhouse and likely #1 seed Arizona would jump Utah over 5-10 teams probably.

A win today and we're likely in the dance

A win today and tomorrow and its essentially a guarantee we're in the dance.

But coach K plans on taking it one step further and winning it all.

And after all he's done, one would be foolish to doubt him

Utah 68
Arizona 65

Man, let's go Utes! Best of luck.

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.

Go Cougs!!! Rise Up!!!

Chris B, is Utah selling Quest for PAC12 tourney perfection tee shirts?

"A win over top 5 powerhouse and likely #1 seed Arizona would jump Utah over 5-10 teams probably."

Unfortunately, our Utes just aren't good enough to hang with the Wildcats.

Oh boy, this is not looking good. Maybe my trip to vegas ends early.

Come on utes, we are better than this.

Salt Lake City, UT

Solid start for Utah, but the Wildcats are schooling the Utes now.

Riverton, UT

This was over before the tip. Welcome to the NIT Utah. The only question now is will they lose by 40+. This looks like the Utah of 2 years ago. What happened to Loveridge and Wright?

Dave Rose is undefeated versus Arizona with two blowout wins in road/neutral games, 99-69 at Arizona (worst loss ever for Arizona in McKale Center) and 87-65 in the ESA.

Larry K is winless versus Arizona, 0-6, soon to be 0-7.

This is embarrassing. Now I know how byu felt when we played them. We're like a pack of scared dogs with our legs between our tails out there. Getting outhustled and outcoached.

The guys seriously look afraid. When the camera shows their faces its not pretty. If we just play OUR game we can get back in this.

Sandy, UT

phoenix - Yes Arizona is better than us. And we are better than you. Scoreboard!

West Point , UT

Wow, 13 points in the first half? I guess Arizona has something to prove to their critics including me. Utah getting beat in every facet of the game right now. C'mon utes you look like you aren't matching their intensity right now and it's getting ugly.

Phoenix, AZ

Utah is down 21 at half time. Arizona would have to go ice cold for the rest of the game for Utah to get back into it. Only scored 13 points in the 1st half. Wow. Utah's pacing for a sub-30 point game. That would be embarrassing. Arizona did do it Washington State though. Not out of the question.

Riverton, UT

Coach K before you start talking about Conference Championships maybe you should take a few baby steps first. How about winning a road game over someone that isn't last in your conference. Or finishing in the top half of your conference during the regular season? If I didn't know better, I would think Coach K is related to Bronco M.

Sandy, UT

Why are WCC fans commenting on this game? Other than Gonzaga, that league isn't more than a step above church ball. And Gonzaga most years wouldn't finish in the top 2 of the Pac 12.

Salt Lake City, Utah

Once again, Loveridge completely disappears in a big game, this time joined by Wright, both scoreless in the 1st half, Loveridge(0-2), Wright(0-2), Taylor(0-1). Onwas is apparently the only Utah player to show up, 6 points on 3 of 6.

Lowest scoring 1st half in the history of the PAC 12 tournament.

Arizona 34
Utah 13

Onward and upward!

East Salt Lake City, Utah

Wow! Utah has no answers today for Arizona. Props to Arizona, solid defense keeping our top 3 players scoreless in the half.

Lets see if we can make adjustments at the half and make this respectable, otherwise it will be 30+ point thumping!

Sandy, UT


Coach K is miles closer to a Pac 12 conference title than bronco M is to a national title. Coach K has Utah much closer than when he started? byu isn't any closer than when Bronco started. And that distance is more than you can imagine.
