It's a matchup versus an NAIA opponent, and the final game of the non-conference for the Runnin' Utes, as Utah will kick off Pac-12 play New Years Day against Stanford. This is a good game to work out some of the kinks and to work off some of the Christmas Day turkey. The Utes have been off for 4 days, and they will need to work themselves back into shape.
This is another opportunity for the Utah backcourt to get their confidence to help balance out the Utah front court. Brandon Taylor, Isaiah Wright and Lorenzo Bonam will need to get some consistency developed in conference play, and a game like this could help with that.
