    10 minutes to tip off.

    Looks like W. Kentucky is on the verge of upsetting Oklahoma St.

    Wow great win over the Gaels in California! On to W. Kentucky in the NIT final four...


    A few words about W. Kentucky:

    They play in a somewhat weaker conference (C-USA), have a record of 27-10, and routinely play teams the likes of UTEP, Old Dominion, Rice, and Austin Peay. Again, not very intimidating. Their only notable win was over #18 Purdue way back in November. But they have a string of losses to some crappy teams all season.

    What they DO have going for them is momentum. They are now America's sweetheart Cinderella team since the last time they reached the NIT semifinals was way back in the 1950's. This is a very big deal for their program -- they shouldn't have made it this far, and are winning through grit and sheer determination.

    Also of note -- all three of Western Kentucky's NIT wins needed double overtime to get it done.

    That said, they're a very scrappy team that you'll lose to if you sleep on them. I could see it going either way. Hopefully the Utes prevail in what is sure to be a very physical game.

    ESPN gives Utah a 39% chance of winning in The Garden vs. W. Kentucky.

    But their predictions don't really count for shit since they only gave the Utes a 12% chance of beating St. Mary's in California, and we all saw how that turned out...

    Seen it too many times, Utes ranked higher/seeded higher and they are projected as underdogs. I hope it fires them up and they kick some Hilltopper butt.

    Sooooo close. I don't have any fingernails left. We need Barefield to light it up and put this game away.

    Betting line has Penn State by 4 points.

    ESPN gives Utah a 25% chance of winning.

    The Over/Under on the Utah vs. Penn game is 135. A good bet would be to take the under as both teams have been trending to the under for the entire NIT tournament. In other words both teams can clamp down the D more than they are given credit for. And we all know that defense wins championship :-)

    Barefield and the Utes are coming out red hot. Hope they can keep it up. Penn State had some firepower in their semi game. The Utes will need lots of offense. Especially given the size advantage Penn State seems to have.

    Utes getting destroyed in the rebound war. Penn heavily favored by the PSU cheerleaders...errr....the announcers.

    PSU starting to run away with it, already 10 points up.


    I think Lamar Stevens walks on water. At least the announcers think so.

    Well, it was a good run.

    Stopped watching ten minutes ago. I can't stand listening to the announcers go on and on about how great Penn is...

    That was painful. I figured the Utes were in trouble when Penn State whooped Mississippi State.

    Has been a fun season though.

    Utah Basketball--Runnin' Utes 2017-18

    Kyle Kuzma becomes first rookie ever to have 1,200 points, 450 rebounds, 150 threes in a season

    He scored 30 last night and 6 in overtime to lead the Lakers past the Spurs, which helps the Jazz.
