Weber State made the Utes feel very small Thursday night.
It wasn't just the 80-51 drubbing or the reduction of a two-game winning streak to a delightful uptick in a season of misery. Legitimately, the Utes were too small to contend with the Big Sky Wildcats. This, of course, is not entirely unexpected for a team that saw its 7-foot-3 center go down to injury in the exhibition season and whose frontline is limited.
Jason Washburn (6-foot-10) and Javon Dawson (6-foot-6) are essentially it for the Utes in the post, at least as far as traditional big men. And they were stymied by the stable of thick post players the Wildcats threw at them.
