Not at the worst time. Not against arguably the best team in the country. And certainly not on a national stage. But the Utes’ worst fears became a reality on Thursday afternoon. Against Arizona — in a game the Utes needed to play perfect to win — their best three players were essentially no-shows. You need a good reason for the Wildcats’ 71-39 win over Utah at MGM Grand Arena? Look no further than Jordan Loveridge, Delon Wright and Brandon Taylor. They are...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Nobody who has witnessed the final sequences of so many Ute basketball games this season could have reasonably predicted what happened next. Loveridge crisply passed the ball to the left corner, and Dakarai Tucker drilled a 3-pointer with 37.3 seconds remaining.

He preached being unselfish. Those talks — held this week in practice leading to Utah’s win over Washington — paid off in the Utes 67-61 conquest of the Huskies at MGM Grand Arena. Jordan Loveridge could have taken the shot that ended up in Dakarai Tucker’s hands with 35 seconds remaining. It was open. It was a good look. Utah’s sophomore forward had been having a great second half, and not one person would’ve complained had he let it fly. “It wou...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Utah’s point guard calmly waited for Monday’s film session to commence, his face telling the tale of someone seemingly in deep thought. About 50 feet away, Jordan Loveridge was all smiles, having an impromptu dunk contest with redshirt freshman Kyle Kuzma, simultaneously joking with his teammates. In this moment, they were two players with two different personas, a mere two days before Utah’s postseason run at t...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

What happens, though, when both are quiet offensively for an entire half? Would the Utes fold? Or would they be able to thrive? On Wednesday night, we got an answer, if only for 20 minutes. With Loveridge struggling to 2-of-8 shooting during the first half against California, and Wright missing three of his four shots, other Utah players picked up the slack.

That much was proved last Sunday when Utah’s star sophomore scored 18 points and grabbed six rebounds at the Huntsman Center against Arizona State. The result was a blowout win over one of the better teams in the Pac-12. That much was proved Saturday in the Utes’ 75-64 conquest of Colorado when the West Jordan native dropped in 21 points and grabbed seven rebounds, both game-highs.

For about five minutes in seemingly every game at the Huntsman Center, the Utes’ defense tightens. They force turnovers, shots start to fall and they inflict a deadly run on their opponent before a large crowd. It’s helped turn a lot of their home matchups into routs. This was the narrative Saturday afternoon in what became a 75-64 win over Colorado on senior day.

It’s not the first time that’s happened this season. In an 80-66 loss to UCLA, the Utes were once again outrebounded by a bigger and more athletic team. Once again, Utah gave an opponent second and third opportunities, surrendering second-chance points. Once again, the Utes were left searching for answers to their absent physicality. “They have some players,” Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak said. “They hit some shots and got to the free-throw line.
