SI on Utah

Utah (217, 105): "Defensively, you have to figure out their matchup zone. Early on, they were doing a lot of switching, which put them in danger because [sophomore center Jakob] Poeltl was guarding guards all over the place. You can get Poeltl in foul trouble if you can get him in ball screens. You just have to throw your body into him and act like you got hit by a cannonball. Poeltl is really tough because if you double him, he throws it sidearm, which guys are not used to. He is all left shoulder. From what I heard, some of the veterans early on were frustrated that [coach] Larry [Krystkowiak] was running everything through Poeltl. Then they got their butts kicked a few times and figured they should start listening. [Sophomore forward Kyle] Kuzma has improved his shooting, but he's not great. [Sophomore forward Brekkott] Chapman has not had a great year. He's around 30% from three, so whoever is guarding him can help on Poeltl. [Senior forward Jordan] Loveridge hasn't spent as much time playing the four, which has hurt them a little bit because he's a bigger threat from the perimeter at the four than any of those other guys. He is foul prone." -pac-12-basketball-scouting-1624137553.htm l

MinnesotaUte icon NEW: On some level, I find that believable. I don't know if they were "frustrated" but they just weren't doing it. Now they are and its working.

o NEW: and you don't think a better explanation for that would be the Utes were trying to place the best point guard in College basketball, Delon Wright, and were still working on team chemistry?
