FORT WORTH, Texas — It’s barely February, but tonight’s Utah-TCU game (6 p.m. MST) at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum could go a long way toward determining who has to play in the dreaded “play-in” game at next month’s Mountain West Conference Tournament.After Wednesday night losses, the Utes and Horned Frogs each finished their first half of the MWC regular season at 2-6, along with New Mexico. It appears, barring a big second-half turnaround by someone that two of those three schools will end up in the 8th-vs.-9th place game on March 6 with the winner going on to play the No. 1 team two days later.The Horned Frogs have already defeated the Utes this year, 71-68, four weeks ago in Salt Lake. Since then, however, they’ve lost six straight games, three at home, including a 76-71 loss to San Diego State Wednesday.According to Ute coach Ray Giacoletti, the Utes have fallen back to their old ways on defense, and he said it must improve for the Utes to have any chance of winning future games.”There’s no need for a rah-rah speech,” he said. “It’s very simple. If we don’t defend any better we’re not going to take steps in the right direction. We’ve got to take pride in guarding people.”Defense, or a lack thereof, has been a problem all season for the Utes, who are allowing opponents to shoot 49.2 percent from the field and 45.4 percent from 3-point range. The Utes seemed to be improving on defense in their wins over Air Force and Wyoming but had a hard time stopping San Diego State and BYU, which shot 53 percent from the field.”We spend half of practice every day defensively,” Giacoletti said. “It’s things we work on every day we’ve got to be able to go out and execute defensively. But we’re not getting better.”Besides improved defense, the Utes need better production from two of their top three scorers, Johnnie Bryant and Shaun Green. Against BYU, neither player sank a 3-pointer as both finished with just four points.Bryant and Green are both expected to start along with Luke Nevill and Ricky Johns, who had 26 and 18 points respectively against BYU, and Luka Drca. Freshmen Curtis Eatmon, Stephen Weigh and Daniel Deane will see time off the bench.The Horned Frogs have a balanced team, led by forward Kevin Langford (11.6 ppg) and Brent Hackett (10.5), who scored 16 and 20 respectively in the win in Salt Lake. Other expected starters are Alvardo Parker, Neiman Owens and Neil Dougherty, the son of head coach Neil Dougherty.Like Utah, TCU is having its own defensive problems. After holding 10 straight opponents under 70 points, five of the last six opponents have scored 70 or more points. After tonight’s game, the Utes will return home for a game against Colorado State Wednesday night. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Related Utah game day
Thankfully I put the item in my column last week about the Heisman Trophy vote, which allowed me to receive some e-mails besides all the lovely ones I received from unhappy BYU fans.Little did I know that last week’s column would be so popular in Florida.I thought it would be fun to get a little feedback from the readers about the upcoming Heisman Trophy selection, so last week I asked for a little advice. I put out the names of five top candidates, including Missouri’s Chase Daniel, Florida’s Tim Tebow, Arkansas’ Darren McFadden, Hawaii’s Colt Brennan and West Virginia’s Pat White.During the week I received dozens and dozens of e-mails from Florida fans, exhorting me to vote for their boy, Tebow.I even got one from a BYU student, who laid out the reasons to vote for Tebow without once mentioning his team’s victory over Utah.One person sent a compilation of all 51 of Tebow’s touchdowns on video this year. One of my favorites was from a reader who in block letters put TIM TEABOW ENOUGH SAID. Enough, I guess, except for the proper spelling of his name.Don’t all those people realize I’m just one vote out of 900?Still, I asked for it.After taking time to study the top candidates, I decided it came down to Tebow and Missouri’s Chase Daniel.I determined I would make the decision after Missouri’s Big 12 championship game against Oklahoma. If the Tigers won and Daniel played well, I was going to go with Daniel because he would have led his team to a national championship game with some gaudy numbers along the way.Alas, Daniel had just an average game Saturday and his Tigers were beaten handily by Oklahoma for the second time this year.So Tebow it is.I’m going with Colt Brennan No. 2 because of his great numbers and leading his team to an undefeated season, plus I need to give a western player some love.As for No. 3, I think I’ll choose Central Florida’s Kevin Smith, who I just discovered has rushed for 2,448 yards this year. He can break Barry Sanders’ all-time record with one more game coming up in the Liberty Bowl.I may have been one of the few people who actually stayed up to see the end of Hawaii’s exciting 35-28 victory over Washington early Sunday morning (about 1:30 a.m. as I remember).I may have also been one of the few to hear the comments of Hawaii coach June Jones, who afterward told a TV interviewer that “the good Lord blessed these kids because they’re doing the right things.”The comments sounded similar to those of Austin Collie’s the week before, about being blessed for doing the right things.You could say Jones’ weren’t the same as Collie’s because they were made in general rather than about a specific play, but what he said two weeks earlier was worse.After beating Nevada with a late field goal, Jones told the Nevada Gazette-Journal, “The good Lord blessed these kids. I think it was divine intervention.”For those who felt I was singling out a BYU player last week, let me say I’m as uncomfortable with Jones’ comments as I was with Collie’s and others such as Tony Dungy at last season’s Super Bowl.It’s fine for coaches and athletes to acknowledge and praise God, but they need to be careful how they say it when other teams and athletes are involved.It’s been an unbelievable year for upsets in college football, starting off with Appalachian State beating Michigan and continuing through Saturday night when No. 2 West Virginia was knocked off at home by a mediocre Pitt team. It would have been nice to see some new blood in the national championship game. But instead of Missouri-West Virginia, we’re getting LSU-Ohio State. Unfortunately that won’t help change the present messy system, because the BCS folks will undoubtedly say, “See, it works, because we got the best two teams after all.” E-mail: email@example.com
The way things started Saturday afternoon, you’d never have imagined any way the Utah basketball team could eventually take a 22-point victory, even if the Utes were playing against an Air Force team picked to finish near the bottom of the Mountain West Conference standings.The Utes didn’t make a field goal until the game was nearly 8 minutes old and by halftime the Utes had more turnovers than baskets, had twice as many fouls as baskets and just one Ute had even scored a field goal.However, thanks to some stellar defense and a large dose of Johnnie Bryant, the Utes captured a 58-36 victory over the Falcons in the Mountain West opener for both schools at the Huntsman Center.Bryant scored 22 points off the bench and the Utes defense came up big in the second half in holding the Falcons to 16.7 percent shooting and just 13 total points.Saturday’s game was a perfect example of what coach Jim Boylen has been preaching all year — that the Utes can win games even when they’re struggling offensively as long as they play tough defense.”I thought we hung in there when our offense wasn’t going and our defense kept us going, which is the way we want to play,” Boylen said. “We want to be a defensive team first and let our offense come around. If this team competes defensively, we have a chance to be a good team.”This Air Force team isn’t as good as recent ones that won more than 20 games three of the last four years and were nationally ranked at times. Still, the Falcons came in with a 8-5 record and Boylen praised first-year coach Jeff Reynolds for the progress the team had made.Boylen said the Falcons “are a very difficult team to play against” and that showed in the early going as the Utes couldn’t do much against the Falcons’ tight defense.Before the game, Boylen had expressed concern with his team’s second-half starts this year. However, Saturday’s first-half start was dreadful as the Utes were 0-for-6 from the field with four turnovers and trailed 6-5 with just over 12 minutes left in the half.That’s when Bryant sank a 3-pointer from the left angle, which brought a big cheer from the crowd of 10,144.Bryant hit four more threes before the half was over and helped the Utes take a 29-23 halftime lead. While Bryant was 5-for-8 from the field in the first half, the rest of the Ute team was 0-for-6.”I was disappointed going into halftime,” said Boylen, who was particularly peeved because the Utes gave up an open 3-pointer and a layup just before the buzzer.”We talked about it and I thought we made a couple of good adjustments on the pick and roll and we were pretty solid in the second half,” he said.With Bryant on the bench to start the second half, Shaun Green hit three straight baskets, including a 3-pointer, to get the Utes off to a solid second-half start.The Utes couldn’t score for seven straight possessions and led just 38-31 midway through the second half when Luke Nevill made his only basket, on a dunk off a nice feed from Bryant.Boylen has been critical of Nevill at times this year, but praised his center, who only attempted two shots and finished with seven points and 10 rebounds.”That catch he made and that dunk was as big a play as there was in the game. I thought that got us going a little bit,” Boylen said. “Luke occupies people down there. I don’t think Luke gets enough credit for what he creates without scoring and that’s his value.”Nevill’s three-point play pushed the lead back to 10 and Tyler Kepkay and Bryant each made layups to give the Utes a 14-point lead that eventually grew to 24 by the end.”I thought we really communicated,” Boylen said. “One of the biggest problems with this team is we don’t communicate like a family needs to, to be successful. I thought today we communicated.”Beside Bryant, no other players on either team scored in double figures as Lawrence Borha and Kepkay each scored eight and Green and Nevill each chipped in seven for Utah.Andrew Henke led the Falcons with nine points off the bench, while leading scorer Tim Anderson was held to seven points on 1-of-7 from the field.Next up for the Utes is a game against Dixie State on Wednesday as they have a bye in the MWC schedule next week. Then it’s off to San Diego State for a game on Jan. 16.GAME NOTES: Nevill became the 19th player in Ute history to score 1,000 points and grab 500 rebounds in a career as he finished with seven points and 10 rebounds on the day. He now has 1,000 points and 509 rebounds … Luka Drca led the Utes in assists for the fourth straight game with five on the day as the Utes had 13 assists for their 16 baskets … Utah won the rebound battle 33 to 18 … The Utes sank 17-of-20 free throws, led by Borha’s 8-of-9. The Falcons made just 8 of 13. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Related Slow start doesn’t sink Sooner star SALT LAKE CITY — Despite falling behind by 10 points early, despite later blowing an 11-point lead, despite going 0-for-14 from 3-point range in the second half and despite missing six free throws in the final minutes of regulation, the Utah basketball team had a great chance to defeat a talented Oklahoma team Saturday afternoon.After tying the game in the final seconds, the Utes led by four points in overtime. In the end however, the Utes couldn’t hang on and lost to the Sooners 78-73 before a spirited crowd at the Huntsman Center.Coming off a 16-point win over Michigan three days earlier, the Utes were hoping for their second victory of the week over a prominent team. They looked to be on their way after taking a quick lead in the overtime.However, preseason all-American Willie Warren, who scored a game-high 27 points, came up big with a couple of big shots in overtime to break the hearts of the Utes, who fell to 5-5.Ute coach Jim Boylen took the loss especially hard. After entering the interview room, he stared at the floor for a good 45 seconds before saying, “Disappointing loss … disappointing loss … it’s a tough one to swallow.”Boylen said the Utes played good enough defense to win, holding the Sooners to 34 percent shooting, but their inability to sink open 3-pointers and even more open free throws doomed their upset chances.The Utes shot 50 percent from 3-point range in the first half when they took a 42-36 lead. But their long-range shooting was horrific in the second half when they missed 10 in regulation and four in OT. And between the 7:58 mark and the 2:15 mark the Utes missed six of 11 free throw tries — four by Brown — which prevented them from taking the lead.”My team battled,” said Boylen. “But we missed too many free throws. You’ve got to make your free throws in big games, and you’ve got to make your open shots.”After fighting back from a five-point deficit with a little over two minutes left in regulation, the Utes got a dunk from David Foster with 18 seconds left to cut the lead to one. They then tied it on a spectacular reverse layup by Carlon Brown with 7.2 seconds left. Warren missed his layup at the buzzer with Foster hovering over him, and it was off to overtime.With new life, the Utes seemed to take control at the start of the extra period.Jay Watkins scored on an inside shot and made two free throws after a Luka Drca steal, and with 3:57 left, the Utes were looking good. But Warren scored inside and, after Drca missed an ill-advised long 3-pointer, Warren sank an NBA-length three with 1:55 left to put the Sooners up for good. Drca missed another long three, and Tony Crocker sank a pair of free throws to make it 74-71.Drca’s two free throws cut the lead to one with 30.3 seconds left, and freshman Tommy Mason-Griffin made two at the other end with 28 seconds left.The Utes had another chance to tie, but Brown was stripped in the lane by Mason-Griffin and the Sooners put it away with a couple more free throws.”They make a guarded three at the end, and we miss two wide open threes,” said Boylen of the difference in overtime.The Ute coach said he wasn’t disappointed in Drca’s 3-point try that came with 3:22 left and the Utes leading by two — with 20 seconds still on the shot clock.”He was wide open — you’ve got to make those,” he said.But even Drca admitted it wasn’t a great shot.”When we were up, we took bad shots, including me,” he said. “I took that one three that I shouldn’t have. But that’s the game, and we’ve got to grow up as a team.”The Utes might have lost the game at the start of the second half when the Sooners kept driving to the hoop and sent Foster to the bench with his third and fourth fouls in the first 1:16, while the Utes settled for 3-pointers.”We were soft going to the rim,” said Boylen. “We kept telling our guys to drive the ball. We’ve got to learn to do that. (The officials) call it on one hand, they got to call it on the other, but we’ve got to drive the ball.”The six-point halftime lead turned into a seven-point deficit at 57-50 midway through the half before the Utes made their late rally.”I tell my guys, ‘You need to learn to play in the street without getting run over,’ ” Boylen said. “And I thought we made a couple of bad decisions where we might have got run over a little bit. It’s a hard thing. We’re going to keep playing in the street and we are going to learn and we are going to grow.”Warren’s 27 points came despite going 7-for-24, while Brown led Utah with 16 despite going 4 for 15. Drca and Watkins each added 13, while Foster had seven points, seven rebounds and six blocked shots.The Utes will have a week off before their next game, Saturday night at home against Illinois State.e-mail: email@example.com
SALT LAKE CITY — One of Dallin Bachynski’s goals in his first year for the Utah basketball team was to earn a starting spot. He never dreamed it would come in just his third game with the Utes.His amended goal after Wednesday night’s 57-46 win over Idaho State is to keep his starting spot for the rest of the season. And as long as the 6-11 center keeps playing like he did Wednesday, that should be a certainty.Bachynski finished with 22 points and 16 rebounds as he kept the Utes in the game early and then keyed a second-half comeback with his offense and rebounding.He’ll undoubtedly be in the starting lineup Friday (5 p.m. tip) when the Utes face Central Michigan in the second game of their Thanksgiving Tournament.Coach Larry Krystkowiak isn’t making any promises, but he sure liked what he saw from the sophomore from Calgary against the Bengals. He said Bachynski got the start over senior Jason Washburn because of his strong play in practice recently.“We want to dangle the carrot in front of some guys and say, ‘if you produce and get after it in a practice setting, you may get a chance to start,’ ” Krystkowiak said. That’s what happened with Bachynski, who was told Monday he would be getting the start.Although Krystkowiak said his starting lineups can change from game to game — he’s used three different lineups in three games — he also said he likes the idea of the high-energy Bachynski giving the Utes an early spark and the experienced Washburn playing in a reserve role.“Wash is pretty good coming off the bench,’’ Krystkowiak said. “Dallin has that energy initially where I know he’s going to get on the floor and give us that burst. Wash coming in as a substitute is worth a look.’’While Bachynski dominated inside against Idaho State, the rest of the team was having a hard time scoring. Freshman Jordan Loveridge shot just 2 for 10 from the field, while Glen Dean was 3 for 9 and Justin Seymour and Jarred DuBois each went 1 for 5Washburn, who started every game last year and led the team in scoring (11.4 ppg) and rebounding (6.2 rpg), played just seven minutes, scoring six points and grabbing two rebounds in his limited time. It marked his lowest number of minutes in his 93-game career at Utah.Central Michigan comes into Friday’s game at 2-1 after beating Wright State 59-55 in Wednesday’s first game of the round-robin tournament. Senior guard Kyle Randall (13.6 ppg) led the way with 13 points for a balanced Chippewas team. All 10 players scored in the game, and five players end up with six points.Idaho State and Wright State will play Friday at 7:45 p.m.The Utes will play their final game of their initial Thanksgiving Tournament Saturday at 7:30 p.m. against Wright State. Then next week they go on the road for their first two road games Wednesday against SMU and Friday at Texas State.
They had too many points in the paint early on and kind of dictated what we were doing instead of the opposite. – Gordon HaywardSALT LAKE CITY — A recurring theme for the Utah Jazz in games against the Los Angeles Clippers this season has been slow starts.In the two playoff games as well as the final regular-season game between the two in late March, the Jazz have started slowly, making just one field goal in the opening four minutes of each game and digging themselves a hole.The Jazz were able to overcome the slow start in Game 1 when after falling behind 7-2 in the opening minutes and trailing after one quarter, they rallied to win 97-95. But in Game 2, they fell behind 11-3, 21-11 and trailed 29-18 after the first quarter before outscoring the Clippers the rest of the way. In the March game, the Jazz trailed 28-14 after the first quarter, came back to tie the game but eventually lost by 13.It’s a problem the Jazz are well aware of and one they talked about after Friday’s shootaround, prior to the 8 p.m. game against the Clippers at Vivint Arena. we made it pic.twitter.com/Z1SxVKUulv— Hayley Byrnes (@HayleyByrnes) April 21, 2017 “That’s an important thing,” said Quin Snyder of the slow starts. “We’ve got to take care of the ball and eliminate offensive rebounds. Mistakes are capitalized on. It’s hard because then you’re playing uphill. That’s something we’ve got to do a better job of.”Boris Diaw and Gordon Hayward both noted that the team has discussed the issue and know they need to correct the problem.“Coach pointed out, pretty much every game against them this season, we’ve had a bad start in the first three minutes,” said Diaw. “We’re looking at different things we can do as far as being focused from the get-go and make it hard in the first minutes of the game It’s definitely a point of emphasis from the last game.”Hayward pointed out that the Jazz were “just fine” the final three quarters when they outscored the Clippers, but the start killed them Tuesday night.“They really have jumped on us early in both games,” said Hayward. “They had too many points in the paint early on and kind of dictated what we were doing instead of the opposite. It will be important for us to not fall behind again. It’s tough when you’re playing from behind the entire game. We want to make sure we come out with a lot of energy tonight.” Jazz excited for first playoff game at home in nearly 5 years Hayward’s Moment … Jazz going nowhere if Hayward doesn’t play like a star Utah Jazz stay relatively mum in wake of Jeff Withey TMZ report Related Utah Jazz notebook: Rudy Gobert, Alec Burks out for Game 3; will Jazz use Hack-a-Jordan?

(AP Photo/Kyle Phillips) Karl Malone feels current Utah Jazz roster has all the tools to ‘finish what we started’ AP OKLAHOMA CITY — Utah coach Quin Snyder must have known what was coming Monday night, judging by some of his pregame comments.“The thing that’s really significant is us taking care of the basketball,” Snyder said. “If we turn the ball over we’re not going to slow them down. They force turnovers and have the most steals in the league and do a great job of converting them. If that’s the case it’s going to be a long night for us.Sure enough, the Jazz turned the ball over plenty, finishing with their second-highest number of the season with 20, including 19 through three quarters.Utah came into the game ranking 25th in the league in fewest turnovers per game at 15.2. The only other time the Jazz reached 20 turnovers for a game came in the dreadful 50-point loss at Dallas when they turned the ball over 21 times.“You can’t turn the ball over,” said Donovan Mitchell afterward. “I had six of my own, the most on the team, but you’ve got to be strong with the ball. We’ve got to execute — we just kind of gave it to them.”NO GIFTS: Rudy Gobert picked up his fourth technical foul of the season Monday night, which will cost him another $2,000. He had another technical last week for his outburst against Houston when he was ejected less than three minutes into the game for knocking some items off the scorer’s table in a fit of anger. The week before that he was fined $15,000 for his criticism of officials after a loss in Miami.

Both teams made eight 3-pointers, but the Jazz attempted 29 to OKC’s 21 . . . Utah also won the rebound battle 45 to 43 . . .
