The Utah Utes look to build on an impressive start when the Idaho State Bengals visit.
I am trying to figure out what ls going on with Idaho State but that is not happening with only five games played and two coming against sub division clubs. The Bengals improved to 3-2 with a 77-50 pounding of Carroll behind nearly 56% marksmanship which was countered with 43% by the Saints. The Saints gave the ball away 18 times which helped the better shooting team to ten more looks and eleven more field goals was the winning factor. Tomas Sanchez tossed in a game high 18 points and posted eight assists with Jeffrey Solarin checking in with 16 points and ten rebounds followed by Evann Hall and Andre' Hatchett with 14 and ten points.

Utah's drive to improve on last season's performance has gone off without a hitch thus far with a 7-1 mark with a two point loss to Boise state being the only blemish. Other then that mistep the Utes have won rether handily behind plenty of scoring which was front and center in a 90-77 rout of Fresno State. Fresno State hung tough for awhile with 51% shooting but that turned out to be well short with Utah blasting away at over 59%. Better schooting compensated for any shot comings elsewhere in the boxscore and accounted for seven more field goals. Delon right led all scorers with 23 points and 12 helpers with Renen Lenz tossing in 15. Jordan Loveridge was next in line with 13 points and eleven rebounds while Brandon Taylor and Jerremy Olsen netted 12 each and Dakarai ten.
It seems like Utah has something going although the strength of schedule is not very strong. I honestly don't know about this one...
