    I like Coach K, but for me there's no such thing as moral victory, either its a win or a loss.

    This result seems very familiar for the U. I hope that they can finish their season strong and win a few more games. I wouldn't mind seeing them make a run in the PAC 12 Tournament.

    I was as first bothered by Coach Krystowiak's moral victory type comments just as a couple of you have expressed.
    But after giving it a second thought, I believe he's being smart and recognized the need to go the moral victory route after this one. The team had fallen into an ugly funk lately and I think this is him recognizing that he needs to keep their heads up if they stand a chance to get a couple more wins.
    It is what it is. While most of us don't see this as a moral victory, the team has to keep looking for positives.
    I hope the players will hang in there and keep trying to improve. Go Utes!

    The good news is Utah improved their performance against the Ducks from last season.

    The bad news is 38 of Utah's 64 points (1 point below their average) were scored by seniors, so it'll be back to the drawing board next season for a team that is 235th in the nation in scoring.

    Still a good effort in another loss.

    Moral Victory = L.

    Sounds like Coach K and his players are pleased with the loss. We'll not go far with that attitude.
