How does Utah basketball get a 1st round bye in the Pac-12 Tournament

It’s crunch time for the the Utah basketball team, who has went on a nice run the last month or so of the season to put themselves in a good spot to earn a bye in the Pac-12 Tournament, as well as being on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament. The loss to USC was a bit of a set back, but Utah finds themselves in a nice spot going into the final game against Colorado. The ever important...

Athlon Sports ranks Utah No. 15 for coaching duos

Athlon Sports released a very interesting list that caught my attention, where they ranked the top 40 basketball/football coaching duos in the country. They ranked three Pac-12 schools in the top 15, with Utah falling at No. 15 on their list. Here’s what they had to say about the Utes: After a relatively rough transition from the Mountain West to the Pac-12, the Utah football...

How close is Utah to the NCAA Tournament

The Utes are squarly on the bubble for the NCAA tournament, and while they don’t control their own destiny to get into the Big Dance, outside of winning the Pac-12 tournament, they are at least in the conversation to get in, which I couldn’t have said earlier this season. The Utes have played really well over the last 6 or so weeks, and have dug themselves out of a bit of a hole...

Utes clinch 3-seed and 1st round bye in Pac-12 tournament with win over Colorado

The Utes were picked in the Pac-12 preseason poll as the No. 7 team in the league, well, after 18 conference games the Utes check in at No. 3 in the Pac-12. Not a bad season for the Utes at all, and now they have a 1st round bye in the Pac-12 tournament starting next week. The Utes will take on the winner of the 6/11 game. It was a rather frenetic start of the game for the both...

Two Utah men’s basketball players named to All-Pac-12 teams

If I were a betting woman I’d bet that the Utah Runnin’ Utes are still celebrating after they clinched the number three seed in the Pac-12 Tournament. In addition to soaking that news all in, the team is also probably celebrating the fact that two of their seniors, Justin Bibbins and David Collette were named to the 15 member All-Pac-12 men’s basketball teams. The league office made...

Utah’s odds to win the Pac-12 tournament

The post season is here, and before the Pac-12 tournament started, the Bovada released their odds for all of the conference tournaments. The Utes come in with the 5th best odds to win the league at 8/1. The thing I’m curious about is if this took the David Collette injury into consideration. If so, I think this makes sense, if not, I like Utah better than Oregon and maybe UCLA. Utah...

Utes fall to Ducks in Pac-12 Tournament

It was a good gameplan by the Utes, but they fell a short Thursday night against Oregon in the Pac-12 tournament. Ultimately, it was a run by the Ducks in the 2nd half that erased an 11 point Utah lead that did Utah in, and they couldn’t counter to advance. It wasn’t the best officiated game, for either team, a lot of touch fouls were called on both sides, which helped lead to David...

Utah tops UC Davis in the 1st round of the NIT

It wasn’t pretty, in fact, it was down right frustrating for most of the game, especially the first three quarters of the game (yes, we are playing quarters in these NIT games), but Utah eventually got their heads out of the sand and pulled out a win over UC Davis on Wednesday night at the Huntsman Center. Utah trailed for three quarters of the game, and were just playing terribly...
