    You do realize that utah has 4 better wins than the BYU cougars do. It's kind of sad seeing your best win be against Santa Clara who is ranked something like 96 in there RPI.

    Just face the truth the Utes can beat anybody while the cougs can only beat teams there expected to beat.

    What did expect for attendance? Please realize that you are in a minority of people that actually care about paying to watch a train wreck. Sorry that your bubble was burst, again.

    @Chris B

    You've really been spending too much time on the BYU articles, you're starting to sound like a BYU homer. Claiming some sort of victory simply by not getting blown out? Wow!!!

    How about actually winning a game, against someone who isn't a bottom feeder.

    Utah played a great game tonight. It was nice to see some shots go in and from a number of guys too.

    Loveridge had a really good game he seems to be back to one hundred percent. I echo the statement above about Washburn being ok, I thought he was going to be done for the season when I saw him go down. He is obviously critical if the Utes are going to have a chance to win anymore games this year.

    This team deserved to finally have a blow out type win. Even though the final score didn't quite reflect it, the Utes dominated the second half.

    Go Utes and good luck on Saturday!

    Earl, not really a reach. None of those five are even considered on the bubble, while the PAC still has a 6th one on the bubble, but I doubt ASU has much chance now after dropping some close decisions lately. But I think Stanford, USC or ASU have as good a chance as any of the top 5 to make a deep conference tournament run and pick up a 6th bid as an automatic qualifier.

    "Five Pac-12 teams in the tournament is a reach, don't you think?" You can take that one up with ESPN. Chat?? No idea what you are talking about. Are you related to Bronco Mendenhall?

    Several analysts and sports media are projecting the PAC 12 to have five teams in the tournament.
    And also five from the MWC.

    Five Pac-12 teams in the tournament is a reach, don't you think?

    Did you guys participate in the chat tonight at all? Did you like that?

    Congratulations, Utes...great defensive/offensive performance tonight! Coach K has the program headed in the right direction, no question. Go Utes!!

    Five teams expected to represent the Pac-12 in the NCAA Tournament!!

    Total domination!

    Let beat Oregon and get on a roll heading into the tournament.

    After taking Arizona to the wire twice we have shown we can play with anyone in the conference.

    Anything is possible!

    Go utes!

    Utah up 30-26 at the half, but very ragged and sloppy. Looking like two teams that have only won 3 conference games.

    Glad Washburn is okay after tweaking his knee.

    Doesn't look like my little sister's pep talk worked; most fans in the lower bowl came disguised as empty red chairs.
