It has been a long, mostly painful season and it might come to an end tonight in the Vegas desert as the Utes open up the conference tournament against UNLV. Utah actually swept the season series, so if there is any hope of them making noise down there, it hinges on their ability to win one more.
But realistically, this team seems ill-equipped for any type of sustained run, or even shocking a top-four team for the third time in a matter of months.
Which means this very well could be the final game of the season. I'm guessing some fans will be sad at this prospect. However, most of us probably just want to put the basketball team out of its misery and start over again next year.
Yet a win tonight would still be pretty sweet.
