Next mission: Beat a D-I team.

Competition gets incrementally tougher this week as the Runnin' Utes take on Sacramento State from the Big Sky Conference.  The Hornets return their top five scorers from last year and had a nifty win last night against Cal State Bakersfield.

What the Hornets lack in talent they make up for in experience.  They rotate four Seniors and two Juniors. Meanwhile, they were led in scoring last night by two Sophomore guards (Dylan Garrity - 21/2/7 and Mikh McKinney - 23/5/3). They defeated Bakersfield by nearly the same score Cal did four days ago. They appear to be a formidable opponent for our young Utes.

Personally, I really like the way this schedule sets up.  It gives the Utes every opportunity to establish their rotation, get their act down and hopefully string together a few wins in the process. Unfortunately, the fans won't get a lot of info to work with until the competition ratchets up another notch after Thanksgiving.
