The Utah Utes have competed favorably against the Pac-12's flagship program over three seasons, but haven't actually beaten Arizona.
Could it happen today in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas? Ernie Kent certainly gives the Utes a chance.
"Utah's defense will cause you problems," said Kent, a Pac-12 Networks analyst and former Oregon coach. "They are going to force Arizona to shoot the ball. [The Wildcats] will not get a lot done inside. Utah's bigs are good enough to bother Arizona's bigs inside."
The Utes are "playing at a high level, they have something to prove," Kent added.<
