The Runnin' Utes 58-69 loss in Oregon was costly, in many ways. It dropped Utah into second place in the Pac-12, needing a four-game winning streak, including a win over league-leading Arizona, to grab a share of the conference title. It also dropped Utah four places from No. 9 to No. 13 in the latest AP Poll.

Starting on Thursday at 8:30 p.m. MT, Utah begins its home stand against the Arizona schools with Arizona State first on the docket. The biggest game of Utah head coach Larry Krystkowiak's Utes career comes on Saturday against the league leading (and, hopefully, road weary) Arizona Wildcats.
