Malik Pope seeking turnaround

Pope battled injuries this preseason and missed the opener. Even so, some project him as a first-round NBA pick. That looks less likely after his dismal shooting in the Aztecs' two losses last week. Five up, five down (Insider)


Utah holds off San Diego State

No. 16 Utah improved to 2-0 on the season with an 81-76 victory over San Diego State.

Sometimes wins are lucky. Sometimes losses are deserved. Utah's 81-76 win over San Diego State -- which took us into the Tip-Off Marathon's seventh hour -- was that rare, refreshing game in which neither of the above held true. Instead, both coaches could walk off the Huntsman Center court feeling pretty good. The Utes were as advertised, a batch of experienced guards and a lottery pick center (Jakob Poeltl) playing ideal inside-out basketball and coolly sealing the game (including sinking key free throw after key free throw down the stretch, and making 27-of-36 overall) down the stretch. San Diego State has a few more things to clean up. Fouls, primarily. But the Aztecs went wire-to-wire with a very good team in a true November road game and never looked like they didn't belong. Promising and entertaining stuff, all around.

No. 16 Utah vs. San Diego State: Who wins?

Thanks to freshman Jeremy Hemsley, the Aztecs shouldn't struggle to score anymore. But they could have a hard time defending 7-footer Jakob Poeltl. Who is expected to win? Weekday predictions

No more point guard woes in San Diego

A year ago, the Aztecs didn't have a point guard. Now, they have a true floor leader in freshman Jeremy Hemsley. He posted 20 points, grabbed six boards and dished out five assists against Illinois State. Five up, five down (Insider)
