The Runnin' Utes build two large leads, lose 'em both, and barely hang on for the three-point victory.

It wasn't always pretty, but the Utes got the job done and advance in the conference tournament for the first time since the 2009 season. Who coulda thought that possible just a week or so ago when they were coming off a lopsided loss to Stanford?

That's three in a row in a win streak that matches the longest of the season (last attained back in November) and now makes Utah officially the hottest team in the Pac-12.

Let's give a shout-out to Jarred DuBois, who played a helluva game. He was the MVP of this one and hopefully he can bring it tomorrow night against Cal - which will prove a difficult match-up for the Utes.

But for tonight ... we celebrate.
