The Utah fanbase will get its first look at a new roster on Wednesday night at the Huntsman Center.
Larry Krystkowiak's crew will get its first opportunity to play in front of a crowd and with referee's.
Ute night will have a festive feel to it. But it will have a serious business-like sense as well.
Krystkowiak wants to see Glen Dean running the point. He wants to see if Jordan Loveridge can integrate himself into the system. He wants to see Dallin Bachynski and his rebounding and hustle. Mostly, he wants to see execution on both ends of the floor.
"We'll go through our normal pregame routine," Krystkowiak said. "It will be nice to come out and play in front of some people."
This will be a nice long look at the team. Utah is expected to play two 20 minute halves and possibly an additional 10 minutes. The Utes will divide themselves into three teams as well.
Most important, it's a break-up of the boredom of practice. With two weeks to go until a game against Simon Fraser, the Utes are entering the home stretch between practice and actual game prepration.
