Makol Mawien, a 6-foot-9, 200-pound forward out of Granger High, talked to coach Larry Krystkowiak on Thursday afternoon to accept Utah's scholarship offer. It's a big recruiting pickup for the Utes for the 2015 class just as the staff is preparing to leave for China with the Pac-12 All-Star team. As for Mawien, he just wanted to stay home.

Then reverse layups. Then floaters. Then midrange jumpers. It could take an hour. It could take all day, if his shot is off. But Jordan Loveridge has been relentless with his latest workout, designed by former Utah basketball player Chris Fulton, one of the top 3-point shooters in program history. It’s called “The Freak.” It requires Loveridge to sink just about any shot imaginable, and in 19 spots, he has to hit at least four in a row before he can continue. “That will be a big thing: I...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
