Interesting fact: 93.2% of dentists in Utah are male.
Uhh, by definition 100% of dentists in Utah are male. If they were female, they would be "housewives."

Or maybe "dentresses."

Yes. WTH has happened to Brito's shot‽ Maybe it's a nagging injury, but if that's the case, stop shooting the three ball until you can actually make it. Shooting at those percentages is essentially a turnover.

One of the biggest differences between this year's team and last year's was that last year's team did a much better job of shooting the ball.

I think that goes along with not having a healthy Queta. When Queta is healthy and backing up our perimeter guys they can play up on their guy with less worry about him driving because Queta will clean it up. The same should be true for Kuba. Kuba's defensive numbers this season are VERY good. In 1...
