2012-13: 15-18 (5-13 Pac-12) Lost to Oregon 64-45, Pac-12 semifinals
In-conference offense: 0.95 points per possession (12th)
In-conference defense: 1.05 points per possession (10th)
Last season, the Utah Utes joined the Pac-12. Sure, Utah was officially a part of the conference in 2011-12, and even managed to somehow win three games. But the team Larry Krystkowiak inherited was incapable of competing in a major conference, and the Utes lost by 20-plus points five times.
After taking a step forward in 2012-13, Larry Krystowiak's current team is younger, and could take a step back this season. However, the young players give the team a better shot in the years to come.
