Utah Basketball - Utes say Majerus day will motivate
First Published Jan 31 2013 06:12 pm • Last Updated Jan 31 2013 06:12 pm

The last time Utah honored the legacy of Rick Majerus, the team went out and played its best game of the season from start to finish.

A rousing win over Boise State served as the net result, as dominating a victory as Utah has experienced this year.

On Saturday against Colorado, Utah will retire Majerus' sweater and hang it in the rafters where it has belonged for so long. The players will try to honor the former coach, who died in December.

"We really want to win this game," senior forward Cedric Martin said. "We know what he's meant to the program. He built this program."

Majerus led the Utes to the national title game in 1998. He consistently made the NCAA Tournament, and recruited such stars as Andre Miller, Keith Van Horn, Michael Doleac and Andrew Bogut, along with Britton Johnsen to the hill.
