    MSU vs Utah mens basketball

    Another big test today against Utah. They are 4-1 on the season with one loss against Sam Houston State, this same SHS team is 5-0 on the year with wins @Oklahoma and against Utah so don't let that loss fool you. We are still the more talented team and are picked to win. Utah does have some size and shooting, 3 of their guys who get playing time shoot above 40% from three so we will have to play good defense and close out on shooters. We are more tough and physical than they are so we will have to use that to our advantage.

    I'm really hoping to see a better offensive game today, we know our defense it there, if we can get someone like Shak, DJ or Davis going more consistently on the offensive end along with Tolu we are top 25 team that no one would want to play.

    matchups

    Utah's #55 will be a potential issue. Cam may have to be on him vs their PG.

    Agree on being a big test. This Utah team is stout, so this will be a true test on our team's ability to defend multiple offenses. Davis and Reed provided the extra offense in the last game, who will it be this time?

    Should be a good, exciting game tonight with plenty of action. But we have to start making those free throws.

    As I recall, Utah barely beat Georgia Tech Monday night.

    Got to double down on the tough defense for the full length of the court. Trap when possible.

    Really good start for the Dogs. Trying a lot of 3s though.

    Well we are just jacking shots. They are actually trying to drive to the basket.

    We need to be tough on defense and take the ball to the rack, over and over again.

    Utah running somewhat of a pack line defense trying to take away dribble penetration. And we’re not making enough perimeter shots to pull them out of it.

    If we could make shots we'd be really tough. Defense is astounding though.
