The Utes are in Pullman tonight to take on a stout Wazzu team that posts a 13-6 record with a 4-4 record in conference play and a 9-1 home record. In their last matchup with WSU the Utes outlasted the Cougars behind Gabe Madsen’s 20 points, 80-58 (I believe the final score does not indicate the actual close nature of that particular game). Utah comes in with a top 25 net ranking while Wazzu is 57, so this is a quadrant 1 matchup. The consensus seems to be that Utah needs to split this road trip in the PNW. This game is a pick ‘em with the spread currently at -1.5 for Wazzu.
Time to take from the rich to give to the needy because we really need a road win.
no Lovering or Worester again tonight
Both teams have missed a lot of shots. Brandon has hit a few threes. Two threes. Missed everything else.
Horrible shooting performance to start. Gee whiz.
How many turnovers will Turloc have while he is in there. They just missed a clear travel.
Smith is out. Ballgame.
Is he hurt?
ankle, couldnt put any weight on it
Well shoot. If he’s gone for an extended time we can forget the big dance.
He eventually walked, but gingerly.
Hunter Erickson will save us ( slight smile)
They’re taping up Smith.
I see Utah is shooting a “high” percentage. LOL
all things considered, only down 3
Got some work to do. Go Utes!!!
Someone has to step up.
10 second chance points for Wazzu.
