Runnin' Utes leading scorer Branden Carlson has endured a number of setbacks this season. A leg injury. A COVID-19 infection. Most recently, Carlson has had to recover from an appendectomy. Now that the Utah big man is back on the court, he's hoping to put his health issues behind him and help the Utes get back in the win column.

Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports Instant Reaction and Analysis and Final Thoughts Game Notes: Losing is never easy and losing 8 straight games is just brutal. The Utes travel to the state of Washington desperately trying to end an 8 game losing streak. Despite the losses, in the last 4 games the Utes have begun to find their identity and showed some incredible grit despite playing without their star Center Branden Carlson. The Utes played tough against 3 teams currently ranked in the top #25. What has been impressive as of late is that Utah’s bench has been...

Utah Loses to USC 79-67: A Game Thread & Recap

Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports Instant Analysis and Reaction and Final Thoughts Game Notes: Utah is in the midst of a seven-game losing streak. The last two games have been absolute heartbreakers as the Utes lost to Arizona State on the road on a floater with 4.6 seconds left in the game. Utah then had a couple of chances against #9 UCLA to tie the game but just couldn’t hit a 3 when it counted the most and ended up losing 63-58. The Utes have been extremely competitive against two top #25 ranked teams in the last three games. Despite the losses (and the...

Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports The Utes face the Trojans in SLC The losing streak is up to seven games, and while some of those losses have been tough, the last couple has had some positives you can take from them, especially considering two of them were against some of the best in the country. The Utes will continue to be without Branden Carlson against USC, but they have played well the last few games and could have pulled off the upset against UCLA if a couple of shots had fallen. The Utes are defending better, taking care of the ball better, and just playing...

We have only three remaining as the Bills, 49ers, and Rams all advanced to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs and are just one win away from the Conference Championship. Largely, the Wild Card round was a snoozefest as most of the games were blowouts, and the only two games that were interesting for a neutral fan were the Raiders vs. Bengals and the Cowboys vs. 49ers.
