*4 Star Play Over* The Utah Utes have decided to play much faster this year. They were 279th in tempo on the offensive end (time it took to get a shot up on average) last year. This year they are 84th in the same statistic.
Montana State ranks 59th in overall tempo so far this year. The Bobcats have played only one game all year that finished below this posted total. Montana State shoots the 3 ball very well, and they put up a bunch of 3's. That isn't such a bad thing against Utah, since the one weakness of the Utes defense the last couple seasons has been defending beyond the arc.
Utah is the 8th best rebounding team in the country, and they should get a bunch of second chance points in this one. The Utes halfcourt defense is clearly much weaker without Poeltl and Loveridge from last year's team.
I think this one is a few points too low. Take the over.
