Utah's gymnastics team saved the best for last, well, maybe. Who knows with this team, the Utes could have even better nights ahead of them than Saturday's 198.125-197.875 win over No. 2 Florida.
Utah looks every bit like a team that could win the Pac-12 title next week at Oregon State. If they can beat the Gators, who notched the country's highest score a week ago, why couldn't Utah win the league title?
They certainly looked like a contender Saturday. Utah excelled on the uneven bars (49.6) and floor (49.65) and Georgia Dabritz earned her first 10.0, doing so on the uneven bars.
Utah coach Greg Marsden has maintained Utah's issues on the uneven bars has been more mental than physical, a hunch proved right by Saturday's effort.
"That is the bars team we see in the gym all the time," he said. "Sometimes you want it so badly, you can try too hard to be perfect and it gets them into trouble. They were much more relaxed and confident tonight."
