Utes Get Lucky Versus Buffs

HAHA, settle down, I’m just trolling you people.

Utah played a very nice game today.  They didn’t let Colorado get away from them when CU was hot early.  When Booker left with foul trouble, Utah stepped on them.  Then when CU started scoring again, even though Utah didn’t get stops for a little bit, they didn’t back off on the offensive end and never let Colorado close.

I was concerned about this game and the Arizona St. game but the Utes came out and played maybe their two most complete games of the year.

Quick Thoughts…

  1. Nice to see Jordan Loveridge come up with nice back to back performances.  Lets hope that follows us on the road.
  2. Delon has to be first team all Pac-12 and could be POY next year if he finds a shot.
  3. Tucker, Fields and Ogbe combine for 17 total minutes.  Not entirely sure what to make of that.

I’ll have some deeper thoughts tomorrow and starting to comment on the big final road trip next week.
