These are two very interesting teams…that nobody in the conference wants to play.
Both have enough talent and experience to be tough outs in a conference tournament while both might not even make March Madness without a run.
Colorado desperately has to have this one as they look to overcome a terrible start.
The Utes already have more losses than they did in either of the last two season and that fact puts their ability to return to the Tournament in danger.
They are coming off a tough one point loss to bottom feeding Oregon State, a result that might tip the scales no matter what they do over the final few games, all winnable.
Kyle Kuzma might get overshadowed by some of the elite player in the PAC 12 but he is averaging a double-double at 15 and 10. He kind of gets slighted for not being more explosive but consistency is a value.
Kuzma and David Collette form a very potent frontcourt as Collette adds 14ppg and 5 rpg. They are long too, Collette leads in blocked shots.
The Utes play with a backcourt without a true point. Lorenzo Bonam and Devon Daniels both have length to be disruptive on defense and can score but neither is natural leading the offense and sometimes it shows.
Utah is an efficient offensive team and a strong defensive team. Like Kuzma, they are not flashy but more often than not they get the jobs done.
In terms of talent this is a good Buffaloes team, just one that took a while to finally come together. They lost their first 7 PAC 12 games but since then have gone 6-2.
He has been off lately but I like the game of Xavier Johnson. He is a physical wing player who rebounds well and contributes all over the floor. I think he could be a Shawn Marion type at the next level, a better pro than a collegian. He and PF Wesley Gordon provide reliability to this team.
Derrick White might also have an NBA future. He is a big PG and has proven he can still score at this level (he was a JC transfer)
To say that Colorado is enigmatic might be the understatement of the year. On talent they could easily roll the Utes even though they lost handily in their previous meeting.

The Buffs are the favourite here and I like the price a lot…especially off revenge.
Utah is a program I really respect but I think they are getting too much in this spot.

Big game for both and a burgeoning rivalry due to their joining the conference together. This game should have a nice environment.
