Tad was offended when the lead dropped to 25, love it. 40 minutes of domination.

Not sure if I'm wrong to be bothered by this take from a Utah writer, but.. " Coming into the contest, McKinley is averaging 2.9 TO's and Jones 2.5, and both go about defending the position in their own unique way. McKinley is more the typical athlete that tries to smother opposing guards with in-your-face defense. While Jones is more cerebral in how he defends the position, using anticipation and angles, often times to draw charges and with the way McKinley attacks the basket on the offensive side of the ball, that could be the difference. "

Bonus:
Timmy Allen vs Tyler Bey
"This will be a difficult matchup for Allen, but he should still be able to find opportunities to put the ball through the hoop. "

Nah. He didn't even mention Battey, but you know, probably not important.

Love the throwbacks (we should wear these every game), dominating performance and hopefully a sign of things to come. Not much else to say. Great win.

They won by 39. Siewart, Kountz, and Daniels has 21 points combined and Strating gave them the tough minutes he’s on the team for.
My comment was in response to a specific moment. Stupid turnovers, crap shots, massive lead shrinks by double digits. Context.

Rylen Jones is absolute trash. Hooks and pushes off every time he had the ball. Should’ve fouled out 10 minutes in. And he looks like a petulant, diaper sharting, 10 year old.

Utah beat Kentucky. They're not great, but they can be pretty darn good at times.

I want this ASU game real bad.
I think the Pac 12 could get up 6 NCAA bids. They're not in like we are right now, but they're not Cal either-they've got a shot to play themselves into a bid.
