News from around the Pac-12 Conference
Utah baseball and softball earned themselves Pac-12 weekly awards this week, as Utah freshman pitcher Jayson Rose was named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week, while Miranda Viramontes was named Pac-12 Freshman of the Week.
It was an unexpected run, but the blue bloods of college basketball ensured it would end in the Sweet Sixteen. Friday night, Duke asserted their No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and took out Utah, ending the Runnin' Utes 2015 tournament run, 63-57.
The Runnin' Utes beat Georgetown 75-64 on Saturday night in Portland to advance to the sweet sixteen. For Larry Krystkowiak's team, this a major milestone considering where they started.
