11. Utah Utes (5-5) LW: 11
After a walking the line of a .500 record for the majority of non-conference play, the Utes pulled to an even 5-5 with another mediocre week.
The Utes followed up a loss to their in-state rival BYU with another loss to No. 19 Kentucky before picking up a win over Florida A&M.
Against Kentucky, the Utes showed their ability, or lack thereof, to be able to hang with some of the top teams in the nation evident in their 18 turnovers in the 88-61 loss.
The sloppy play combined with hot shooting (58.6 percent) from Kentucky was the downfall of the Utes in a game where they dominated the glass with a rebounding margin of eight.
Utah was able to snap their two-game skid against Florida A&M and held contributions from senior Parker Van Dyke and the 3-point ball. Van Dyke led the team in scoring with both a career high in points and 3-point makes with 20 and six, respectively.
As a team, the Utes finished 11-25 from beyond the arc in their 93-64 win over Florida A&M as the team used five players in double digits to reach 90 points for just the second time on the season.
Utah will round out non-conference play with back-to-back home matchups against NAU and No. 6 Nevada before beginning conference play in Tempe against No. 18 ASU on January 3rd.
