No. 3 Arizona vs. Utah: Preview, TV schedule, start time and more

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Wildcats look to improve to 14-0 on Saturday against an improving Pac-12 foe.

After escaping with an overtime win over Colorado on Thursday night, the Arizona Wildcats will have a quick turnaround against Utah. The 'Cats and Utes are set to square off on Saturday afternoon, which will give UA a chance to get out to a 2-0 start in conference play.

While Arizona had problems with CU, they should have their way against Utah. They're coming off a tough one-point loss to Arizona State, and while coach Larry Krystkowiak has the program headed in the right direction, they still lack abundant talent and playmakers on the roster.

Utah's leading scorers are Jarred DuBois and Jordan Loveridge, who both average about 13 points a night. As a team, the Utes shoot 46 percent from the floor, 37 percent from behind the 3-point arc and 76 percent at the free throw line. The biggest advantage for coach Krystkowiak will be rest; Utah last played on Wednesday, so they should be refreshed and ready to go in front of what is expected to be a sold out McKale Center.

Start Time: 5 p.m. ET

TV Schedule: Pac-12 Network

Odds: Arizona opened as a 18.5 point favorite.
