Utah's NCAA Tournament hopes in trouble after skid

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak said he ''just about blew a gasket'' Sunday when he heard giggles on the bus ride after his Utes blew a nine-point lead in the final minutes of a loss to an Oregon State team that was 0-14 in Pac-12 play. Utah now likely needs a deep run in the Pac-12 tournament to be considered for the NCAA Tournament. ''I think there's a time...

Utah drops head scratcher at Oregon State, 68-67

Well, at least they're consistent with not being able to take care of the ball, as Utah dropped to Oregon State 68-67 in Corvallis, giving the Beavers their first Pac-12 win. Utah turned over the ball 17 times against OSU, and had two awful stretches of basketball that doomed them. First, the Utes dug themselves a 10 point hole to open the game, with some ugly offense. Then, Utah...

Utes fall to Oregon without Kuzma

Thursday night at Oregon went about as I expected for the Utes, as they fell to the Ducks 79-61. It was going to be an uphill battle for the Utes anyway, but the fact that they were without Kyle Kuzma, who twisted his ankle in practice, pretty much cemented Utah's fate. Jayce Johnson did play well in Kuzma's absence, with 14 points and 12 rebounds, but it's hard to replace Kuz's...

Utah tops Washington, 85-61

The first four minutes of the game against Washington was pretty similar to the last three games Utah has played. It was a turnover fest, as Utah racked up six early turnovers to dig themselves an 18-10 hole to the Huskies. There were errant passes, attempts to do too much, and just bad basketball. Fortunately, after that initial flurry of terrible hoops, the Utes rallied to go...

Utah loses to Stanford 81-75

Well, the Utes NCAA chances all but had a fork stuck in them today, as they dropped a bad loss to Stanford by a score of 81-75. The theme was similar to the Cal game too, they just couldn’t get out of their own way with 17 turnovers on the game. On top of that, missing nine free throws doesn’t help either.
