However, their fortunes may be revered in the future as freshman Jordan Loveridge looks like he could be an impactful player for the next few years. From West Jordan, Utah, the 6-foot-6, 230 pound forward is averaging a respectful 12.5 points a game on 40 percent shooting. He is also pulling in 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists a game.
Also in the frontcourt, fifth-year senior Jason Washburn is a very effective player for the Utes. At 6-foot-10, the Michigan native is averaging 10.6 points on 60 percent shooting, 6.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks a game. In conference play, he has averaged 14 points, 10 rebounds and 2.2 blocks.
In the backcourt, senior transfer Jarred DuBois from Loyola Marymount is averaging over 10 points a game for his fifth year (2010-11 he was redshirted after a season ending injury). At 13 points, the 6-foot-3 point guard is leading all Utes in scoring. DuBois, from Inglewood, Calif., also averages 3.4 assists and three rebounds a game.
As for locals, Rainier Beach's Aaron Dotson, formerly of LSU, is a backup junior guard for the Utes and Glen Dean, a strand out player for Eastern Washington, transferred in and will be starting.
At the helm for the Utes, Larry Krystkowiak is in his second year. A legend at the University of Montana, the 48-year-old had a long NBA career before getting into coaching. Most recently, the Missoula, Mont. Native was the coach of the USA U18 national team.
