I have to admit it, I am a closet Buffs hoops fan so I am happy to see that they are off to a good start after a down season.
Utah will be a good test as these two relative newbies to the conference continue to try and prove themselves worthy of hoops glory.
Utah was coming off a very good season last year and they beat Duke at a neutral site to tell the hoops world that they are not planning on sliding this season. They are definitely a player in the PAC 12.
This season their best player is Jacob Poetl who has significantly improved his production and looks pro ready. The one knock on his game is that he is not a great free throw shooter.
The Utes are a rare college team that gets big time production up front. In addition to Poetl, Jordan Loveridge and Kyle Kuzma are also double-digit scorers. Like Poetl, Kuzma has also elevated his game as a sophomore.
Utah is waiting for Brandon Taylor to come back to career norms at this point. He has been shooting the ball terribly and they need him to be a regular contributor if they are going to compete with the conference elite.
There is a lot of competition but it is possible this is the best team in the ACC this season. .
Last year was a down year for the Buffs. Partly due to injury and party due to their inability to come even close to replacing the leadership of Spencer Dinwiddie after he left for the NBA.
This year injuries have played a factor again with Xavier Johnson still on the shelf but at least they have their best player back in the fold in big man Josh Scott.
Scott may be one of the more underrated players in the country. He is a pro prospect though and his numbers are very similar to Poetl, who garners more hype.
In support Buffs guard Josh Fortune and George King are stepping up. Both were unavailable to Colorado last season and have become double digit scorers with an ability to space the floor.
When they are playing their best the Buffs have enough talent to challenge anyone in the conference this season, especially at home. .
