  • Hardwood History

      After losing Keith Van Horn to the NBA Draft Rick Majerus' Utah Utes started the '97-98 season ranked #16 in the preseason poll.  They quickly rose up the rankings after starting the season on an 18 game win streak and finishing the season 25-3.  As the #3 seed in the West Region of the NCAA Tournament the Utes advanced to the Sweet 16 after wins against #14 seed San Francisco and #6 seed Arkansas. 

      Led by a trio of future NBA players, Andre Miller, Michael Doleac and Hanno Mottola Utah squeaked by West Virginia by 3.  They then destroyed #1 Arizona by 25 points to reach the Final Four. 

      The Utes had one more upset up their sleeve knocking off #1 North Carolina, 65-59 to advance to the National Championship game.  Utah's hot streak would end at the hands of Kentucky, 78-69.

      "We were so good primarily because we all cared about each other."

      -Michael Doleac, Utah Utes
