Basketball season is back, and the Utes are bringing in a very new, and a very young team. The Utes bring in a highly touted recruiting class under Coach K, and we got a bit of a sneak peak of them a week ago in the exhibition game against the College of Idaho. We saw a ton of the freshmen get a bunch of run, as we’d expect, and it will be a while until we get a good feel for this teams personality. With so many new players on this roster, especially young guys, it will take a while for this team to come together and get into a rhythm. Check out the preview we posted a few weeks ago. This will be arguably the most athletic team we’ve seen in quite a while, but there is a lot we need to learn. This is what we do know, Sedrick Barefield should have a nice season, if he does, I expect the Utes will as well.
