Game Thread for Utah Utes vs. UCLA Bruins: The Minutes Question

The program that does this automatically lists the game as at UCLA. While we may be the home team officially I don't feel comfortable ever listing us as such when we play at the Sports Arena. Tonight's game is at 7:32 p.m. on Prime Ticket with Joel Meyers and Don MacLean. As mentioned earlier, Utah has not won a game this year on the road.

Bruins Nation articles are on the side. The official preview is here and gametracker is here. The Utah Utes preview is here. David Wear tweaked his knee and is listed as probable tonight but I would be shocked if he does not play.

The bigger question is how many minutes will the starters play. As CBH has said UCLA's only way to get to the NCAA tournament is to win the Pac-12 tournament, that seems to mean playing a lot of players. For 3 or 4 games in as many days would be tough for the players if they are playing 30+ for each game. Will Stover and Powell see more early minutes tonight? Stover's energy has been a big plus.

Go Bruins.
