  • Interesting season so far. Teams have been extending their defenses in order to keep us from killing them from three. We’ve gotten better the last couple games at attacking the basket when they do that, but have simply had too many turnovers. Freshman Peyton McFarland has started the last two games at the 5 spot. She is clearly a little raw…[Read more]

    Am I correct in my understanding that Fillinger and Carlton will be able to count this season as a red-shirt year due to the fact that they have only played in a few games?

  • This will be an interesting game to see where we’re at. The top tier of the Pac-12 looks to be Stanford, Oregon, Arizona and UCLA, all of whom where ranked in the top 11 in the country in the most recent poll. Hopefully we can battle for that second tier with Oregon St, ASU and ???. However, to do that, we need to win games like this one vs.…[Read more]

  • While our Utes should clearly be favored to win this game, Montana State is not a bad team. Coach Binford has been there quite a while, they’ve recruited consistently and the team is well coached – they are one of the top teams in the Big Sky conference. They lost 58-72 to BYU yesterday and BYU hit 14 threes in that game. Let’s hope we play…[Read more]

  • This was a really nice win for the squad. They had a tough first game against Oregon two days prior and looked much more comfortable in game 2. I think we saw a glimpse of what this team can be, with much more depth than they’ve had in the recent past and a lot of shooters. Brynna Maxwell was unstoppable in the second half. It also was really…[Read more]

  • We also have a “commit” from Tevita Fotu a DT from Snow College. He originally committed in the 2018 class but ended up at Snow instead, now appears to be coming again. Does anyone happen to know how many years of eligibility he will have left?

  • I believe Koli Faaiu, an O-lineman from Edmond, WA, is going to announce his commitment this evening. Internet speculators suggest we have a good chance.

  • Some nice recognition for our incoming recruits (2020 class) – both Kennady McQueen (UT) and Peyton McFarland (ID) were named the Gatorade Player of the Year for their respective states.

    They’ve definitely had more turnovers lately than you’d like to see. Part of that is likely their youth, the vast majority of minutes are played by freshmen and sophomores. On a positive note, they have stretches every game where they take care of the ball and hit a few shots and they are really good, just need more of them….

    Utes play today in the first round of the Pac-12 tourney, 3PM (MT) vs. Washington. Should be a competitive game, although Washington is down a couple players due to injury so hopefully we can pull it out. Winner gets to play Oregon….

    College sports will never be a level playing field for all schools but the Pac-12 really needs to figure out the Pac-12 Network, that is a major part of the revenue disparity.

  • Chilly replied to the topic Down the stretch in the forum Basketball (Women) 1 year ago

    Two good conference road wins last weekend in Washington to put ourselves all alone in 7th in the Pac-12. This weekend has home games against Stanford and Cal. Stanford is ranked #8 and beat us by 33 at their place although the game was more competitive than the score indicates. A Utes win would be a major upset, let’s hope for continued…[Read more]

    Out on social media the last couple days, our Utes got another commit for the 2020 class, Kelsey Rees, a 6’5″ post from Australia. Here’s a highlight video:

    Seems like a very solid addition, moves well and I’m thinking that her shooting ability will add a new dynamic to the offense. We are now…[Read more]

  • Chilly replied to the topic Down the stretch in the forum Basketball (Women) 1 year ago

    As of today, here are the PAC-12 teams in the top 25:
    3. Oregon
    6. Stanford
    9. Oregon State
    10. UCLA
    12. Arizona
    19. Arizona St.

    The PAC-12 has to be the top conference in WBB this year and I don’t think it’s close. We have played both Oregon schools twice and UCLA and Stanford once each.

    After what has to have been the toughest conference schedule in the country so far (tied with Colorado), our Utes are in a 4-way tie for 7th in the conference, with six losses against teams ranked in the top 10 in the country. Of the final 8 games, they “only” have two games remaining against top 10 teams (Stanford and UCLA), so it will be an…[Read more]

  • Chilly replied to the topic Let's do this! in the forum Basketball (Women) 1 year ago

    Pac-12 is just a buzz-saw this year, tough year to have a roster full of freshmen and sophomores, no matter how talented they are. It definitely seems like we are doing better the second time through the gauntlet, competing for decent stretches of each game. The opposing teams are so explosive though, hard to keep them in check for a full game.

  • Article on Brynna Maxwell, again posting here so that it doesn’t get lost in all of the game previews, recaps, etc.:

  • We will win a lot of games shooting 16 of 23 from three. This is a young team with good potential, they’ve just had too many turnovers and defensive lapses in some of their games this season. Those will improve with experience, seems like they’re playing the right way and the team vibe is still good.

  • The program puts out a lot of game previews and recaps, so I thought it would be good to post a link to this story about Kemery Martin which was very good:

    Article

    Kemery had her best game of the season against USC, looked more relaxed and confident on the floor.
