Utah Basketball announced that Forward/Center Marko Kovacevic will not return to the team for his senior season.  A family emergency has arisen and Marko has chosen to return home to his native Serbia.

Marko was injured in the preseason last year and was never really able to be a factor.

The move leaves the Utes with one open scholarship.
