This is as close to a must win game that the Utes have had this season. After losing four straight, the season is on the brink of spinning out of control. Fortunatley, it can’t get much worse than we saw last week when Utah got blasted by the LA schools on the road. Coming home to the Huntsman Center should hopefully cure some of the ills of this team. The rest is up to the team themselves.
Tonight, can Utah take care of the ball and close out possessions on defense, meaning keep UW off the glass. The ability to defend and shoot the three will be big for the Utes, as that was a major issue this past week. If they can’t do that, it will be a long night for Utah.
I feel like a couple of tough practices and film sessions should have opened this team’s eyes and help them focus on the task at hand. At least that’s what I hope has happened.
Join us and Go Utes!
