Utah heads to Europe looking to grow after heavy turnover

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak isn't a fan of the narrative that the Utes will have "so many new guys" next season but there's no question there will be a significant transition after the team lost four of its top six scorers from the 2016-17 season.

Utah has begun practicing in anticipation of a 10-day European tour beginning Saturday that includes three games and visits to Barcelona and Paris. The trip will be a good development opportunity for a roster that will have four new starters and five newcomers, including a redshirt freshman. Virtually everyone could have bigger roles.

"If we didn't have a new guy, this would still be valuable," Krystkowiak said. "We're not going to do the same things. We don't have a system that we recruit players to and do the same thing each year. But we try to bring in the best players, put them all together and put them in a position where they can be successful. So that's a different challenge with this group."
