Utah Men’s Basketball Team Capitalizing on NIT Experience

March. It’s just another month for a lot of people, but for sports fans around the world, it’s one of the best months of the year. March is the time of year when so-called basketball pundits are “too sick” to go to work, or when people plan vacations with their buddies to fill out their March Madness brackets that are going to bust in the first round. But how many people are planning...

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...

Utah Utes to play Cal Davis in 2018 NIT First Round

This was pretty much an NIT season from the start, even when there were some hopes at times for an NCAA berth. The Utes learned their fate on Sunday afternoon, as they were picked as a No. 2 seed in the 2018 NIT tournament, and will host Cal Davis at the Huntsman Center on Wednesday night at 7 pm. The Utes are coming off of a disappointing loss to Oregon in the Pac-12 tournament...

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 coaches and Jack Tuttle welcome Britain Covey home from mission

He’s back! Utah wide receiver Britain Covey returned from his LDS mission on Wednesday, and Utah coaches were at the airport to meet the dynamic playmaker. Covey will not be participating in anything for spring ball, but he’ll be with the team for Ssummer conditioning and beyond. With the loss of Darren Carrington and Raelon Singleton, the return of Covey is a welcome site. Of...

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...

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...

Looking at the Utah spring football depth chart

Spring ball is here! That means the football itch will get a bit of a scratch over the next month, and a we’ll get a bit of a preview of what Utah has coming in for the coming season. The Utes released their one and only depth chart of the spring, which to be honest, doesn’t mean much, but we can still be fans and dive into this bad boy and see if there’s anything of interest. ...

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...

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...

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 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...

Utah football to start spring practices March 5th

We are just a couple of weeks away from the start of spring practice for the Utah football team, and it will be great to see some football. Fans will get a sneak peak at the likes of Jack Tuttle, the highly touted QB signee for the Utes. Also, the Utes will see how Tyler Huntley has progressed since the bowl game, and how the line backer corps looks to reload. I’m very curious to...

Early Look Ahead to the 2019 Class

Now that we are through the 2018 recruiting cycle, let’s shift our focus to the 2019 recruiting class for the Utah Utes. Unlike this time last year, Utah does not have any commits currently for the 2019 class (Utah already had Jack Tuttle and Hunter Lotulelei committed prior to this point last year for the 2018 class). Since Utah does not have any commits, we will focus on some potential...

Utah finishes season sweep of Washington schools with 77-70 win over Washington State

It wasn’t the prettiest of efforts from the Utes against Wazzu on the road Saturday night, but they did just enough to get the win. It didn’t seem like it’d be that close of a game when Utah built a 20 point lead halfway through the first half, but they allowed Washington State to counter and cut that lead to 10 at the half. Utah’s ball movement in that first half was great. There...

Taking Stock of In-State Recruiting

Well, National Signing Date 2018 came and went. For the second year in a row, the Utah Utes failed to sign any four-star prospects from the Beehive State. In the last two years, there have been 10 four-star recruits from the state of Utah, and none of them signed with Utah out of high school (though Sione Lund, a 2017 four-star recruit has transferred to Utah from Stanford).
