Late turnovers doom Utes against OSU

Late turnovers doom Utes against OSU

Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports The Utes had chances to get the win over Oregon State on Wednesday night, but they had one too many turnovers that cost them the chance. Utah had two chances with the clock winding down, but a turnover on a lob ended one chance to tie the game down two, and then a turnover at the end cost the Utes the ability to go for a game tying three. Utah ended up losing the game 75-70. The Utes had a nice first half, as they had both Timmy Allen and Alfonso Plummer clicking early on, both had double digits in the opening half. For the opening half,...

Utes upset USC 71-61

Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports In a shocker of a game, especially after the last week of performance, the Utes came out on Saturday and knocked off the No. 19 ranked USC Trojans at the Huntsman Center, getting their first win over a ranked opponent since they knocked off Kentucky a season ago. The Utes were led by Alfonso Plummer and his 19 points, many coming big in the second half. Timmy Allen had 15, Ian Martinez had 10 and Pelle Larsson had 9 as well. Mikael Jantunen had 6 points and 7 rebounds in his first game back from international competition. Things...

Utah WR Samson Nacua enters transfer portal

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Utes have lost their second starting wide receiver to the transfer portal in just a few weeks, as Samson Nacua has decided to put his name in the portal to try and find a new home. The Timpview kid had 1015 yards, on 82 catches with 11 touchdowns in his Utah career, and was one of the better pass catchers for the Utes, and was always reliable. His 2020 season was slowed by an injury he had early in the shortened season for the Utes. pic.twitter.com/UQpxKeZjLa— Lørd Įmpälêr (@lionel_nacua) February 27, 2021 Nacua joins Bryan...

Former Bama LB joining the Utes

Former Bama LB joining the Utes

Utah has been raiding the transfer portal for months, since season has ended, and now another name has joined the Utes. Former Alabama linebacker Brandon Kaho made it known on Twitter that the Utes would be his new team. Kaho was actually a Washington Huskie, but shortly after getting on campus in Seattle, he asked out of his LOI and went to Alabama. During his time in Alabama, he was mostly a special teams contributor, with 32 tackles and score a TD on a blocked punt. Kaho will join a nice line backing corps, and should add some great depth to the team.

UCLA runs past Utah

UCLA runs past Utah

Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports The Utes lost their fourth straight game on Thursday night after dropping a home game against UCLA by a score of 76-61. Things started pretty well for the Utes, as they really battled with UCLA in the opening half, and the offense was really doing a nice job penetrating and finding the open guy under the hoop, or kicking out for a three. It was a game plan that reminded me a lot of the Oregon game, and the Utes were tied at 22-22 with about 6 minutes left, as Utah was trying to slow the game down, and then UCLA started to get rolling....

Utes fall just short to Oregon 67-64

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports In what may have been one of their best played games, still down two starters, the Utes had a chance to beat the Ducks in Eugene, but some empty possessions at the end, including a questionable double dribble call, doomed them to a 67-64 loss. Utah came out with a game plan, and it was a pretty deliberate one. Take care of the ball, and shorten the game as much as possible. The Utes did a very good job of that game plan for most of the game. Utah didn’t shoot the lights out, at just 45% on the game, but they didn’t let Oregon get out in...
