The start of college basketball is right around the corner. The Utah Utes men’s basketball team held their media day on Wednesday at the Huntsman Center. Guard Brandon Taylor says they want to play faster this coming season. Meanwhile, BYU Cougars head coach Dave Rose says he will be back on the court October 7th following cancer surgery earlier this month. In other regional news, Utah State starts practice on Friday, but they will be without forward Ben Clifford, who is out eight to 10 weeks due to a stress fracture in his foot.
