    That's what can happen sometimes when you play a team that lives and dies by the 3s. Sometimes they bury you by making them, sometimes they bury themselves by missing. Tonight, especially in the second half, they were making them and buried us.

    2 things came to my attention:
    1-I think it's great that the officials can look on the monitors and check for flagrant fouls. But it's kind of silly that when they do see it on there, they still allow the field goal that the fouling team shot AFTER the foul was committed.
    2-Arizona lacks sportsmanship. Having a starter take the ball down with under a minute left in a blowout game and attempt a 3 with 28 left on the shot clock (and brick it) and then go to the bench with nothing but laughs and congratulations from his team is a poor display.

    But time heals all wounds, and Saturday we host an Arizona State team that might almost be in as bad of shape as us. Go Utes!!

    Man, Arizona was hot on those 3 pointers. That put the game out of reach. Nice hustle by the Utes today.

    Well, it is what it is.
    I'm glad Storey will be getting Jiggy's minutes now ... we may as well get him as much experience as possible going into next year - even if the experience results in losses this year (which it obviously will most or all of the way from here out).

    It just keeps getting uglier and uglier for the Utes. Without Jiggy Utah has little chance of winning another game this season.
