Woo hoo! Another tip off at 10:30 at night! Why can’t we do like a 9pm tip off at the very least? Anyway, the Utes take on the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels tonight in Vegas, in a former conference rivalry renewed. UNLV is 4-0 on the season, like the Utes, and may prove to be the best opponent for the Utes to date.
The Utes do have to content with a stud freshman, Brandon McCoy, who is averaging 20 points and 11 boards a game. Plus, Utah will have to be disciplined in the half court, because UNLV is a run and gun team, and if Utah has live ball turnovers, the Rebs will be off to the races.
Overall, another nice test for the Utes as they move through this non-conference slate, and with it being a likely road game, they’ll have to play their cleanest ball of the season.
