Despite failing to reach the NCAA Tournament, the Utah Utes were one of the more impressive Pac-12 teams during the regular season, going 22-14 overall despite just a 9-11 conference record. Although the Utes have yet to face a higher seed during the NIT, Utah has taken care of business at every turn of the tournament, including their 20-point win over VCU in the quarterfinals.

This Tuesday though, the Utes will face a true No. 1 seed in Indiana State. The Sycamores may have lost in the MVC Tournament Final, but they were still considered one of the best teams not to be chosen for the NCAA Tournament. The NIT has been somewhat of a redemption tour for the team, and they’ve taken full advantage, managing to score their way into the semifinals. Indiana State was one of the best offensive teams in the country during the regular season, ranking 16th in offensive efficiency via KenPom.

Predictions for Utah vs. Indiana State

Bleacher Report: Indiana State wins

Joe Tansey writes, “Indiana State’s well-rounded starting five and Utah’s poor form away from home could be the perfect concoction for the Sycamores to move one win away from the NIT final.”

Action Network: Utah (+3.5)

Matt Gannon writes, “As much as it makes sense for Indiana State to finish the storybook season on a great note, I can’t back the Sycamores as favorites. This is going to be a close game and could surely come down to the final shot.”

Sports Gambler: Under 164

Duante Johnson writes that the 164-point line has not been crossed in 16 of Utah’s last 20 games and 13 of Indiana State’s last 20 games. With that in mind, it’s hard to imagine a scenario where both teams combine to overcome that figure.
