Basketball coaches - heck any coach for that matter - are generally perfectionists.

Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak is hardly any different.

The Utes will play their intrasquad scrimmage tomorrow night at the Huntsman Center. When they do, Krystkowiak is likely to be irked, one way or another.

If Utah scores well, then there will likely be a defensive breakdown somewhere along the line.

If the Utes don't score well, then execution took a hit.

But it may be the sign that Krystkowiak thinks he has a good team as well.

No longer is the goal simply to compete. The Utes think and believe they have the opportunity to record wins this season.

Therefore, you have the perfection.

"There is a long list of things I want to see get done," Krystkowiak said. "It's not just one thing."
