Then he lured in Jordan Loveridge and Delon Wright in back-to-back recruiting classes. Suddenly the process sped up, as well as expectations. The Utes went from six wins in that first year to 15 in 2013. Then they won 21 games this past season, nine in the rugged Pac-12, and advanced to the NIT. Now, the process seems virtually complete.
