Utah basketball: For Jordan Loveridge, crash course begins

Utah freshman Jordan Loveridge has lived up to billing, but Pac-12 will be new challenge.

"He’s like a man with a young face," said Cedric Martin, Utah’s senior small forward. "He hasn’t had any issues adjusting to the Pac-12 because he’s already so physically mature and developed. There aren’t a lot of power forwards that can deal with what he brings to the table. He’s going to have a great career here."
