Runnin' Utes basketball schedule finalized

Not the biggest news around and basketball season is still months from starting, but it's still fun going over schedules and at least getting an idea of what to expect. 

Today the Utes finalized their schedule for the season and I think it provides some nice balance, especially since the Utes finally end the season against BYU at home, as opposed to on the road, as was the case last season. 

Beyond that, though, Utah opens the season against Idaho and play nine of their first thirteen games in Salt Lake City. A tenth is against Weber State up in Ogden. Smooshed between those contests is the Las Vegas Invitational, where they'll open against Illinois and either play Bradley or Oklahoma State in the second game.

Utah opens 2010 with a game against LSU and then jumps into conference play a few days later against TCU. 

The Utes also host Oklahoma and Michigan, two teams that made the tournament last year. Both games could really establish something for the Utes this season if they were to win. 

The full schedule is after the jump...
