SALT LAKE CITY — Injuries have left the Utah Utes a bit shorthanded in practice. As such, head coach Larry Krystkowiak said the staff will probably hold tryouts when school starts next week.

"I'm not sure there's a couple of guys in the student body that wouldn't come on over and lend some help. When we're beat up we need some more bodies to practice," Krystkowiak said. "Utah's a pretty good basketball state, I've got to imagine there's some good hoopers on intramural programs running around."
