The University of Utah Runnin Utes Fall to St Mary’s in NIT Opener by a final score of 62-50. The Utes jumped out quick and led by double digits but couldn’t hold off a St Mary’s team playing with passion for their seniors.
The game ended a season that seemed to exceed expectations of many fans. The loss to the Gaels capped off a season of ups and downs. The Utes really struggled on the road this year and the road loss in the first round of the NIT was no different. The team struggled to find offense and is plagued with turn overs when competing on the road yet at the friendly confines of the Huntsman center the Utes excel.
The Utes can really build on the results of this season.
