Utah Basketball - Utes readying themselves for Colorado


With Andre Roberson and Xavier Johnson on the floor, this will be priority number one for Utah on Saturday against a good Colorado team.

Ball control:

With turnovers and bad shots making the offense ineffective, this is the second priority.

For the first time all season, though, Utah has a week to prepare for a Pac-12 basketball contest. The Utes will need it. The Buffaloes are among the most athletic teams in the league, and they sport superior length in the form of Roberson and Johnson and Spencer Dinwiddie.

Utah is looking to win its 10th game of the season, and its second contest of the conference schedule. There will be a slight change to the rotation, with Jeremy Olsen receiving the back-up center minutes now that Dallin Bachynski is taking a leave from active competition.

A win would give Utah positive momentum, heading into a road trip against Oregon State and Oregon.

And it all starts with rebounding and taking care of the basketball.
