Unless something drastic changes in the next 48 hours, Cedric Martin will spend his second consecutive game on the bench Friday night as the Utes take on College of Idaho.
The groin injury that's bothered Utah's best perimeter defender is still troublesome for the 6-foot-4 senior. Martin didn't practice on Wednesday night, and with the Utes heavily favored to win their eighth game of the season, Larry Krystkowiak sees no reason to risk further aggravation.
"That's the kind of injury that needs some rest," Krystkowiak said. "We don't want to rush him back and expose him to anything further."
