FORT MEYER, Fla. — The inaugural NCAA basketball season ends for Utah Valley State College on Thursday and Friday with games in the National Provisional Tournament in Fort Meyer, Fla. The tournament includes the three other provisional NCAA member universities—Florida Gulf Coast, Northern Colorado and Longwood.
