The University of Utah has had an upper-echelon basketball program since the early days of college basketball. Led by outstanding coaches like Vadal Peterson, Jack Gardner and Rick Majerus, the Runnin' Utes have produced 10 first- or second-team All-Americans. The first was Dick Romney in 1916 and the latest was Andrew Bogut in 2005.
Utah has had four teams advance to the Final Four, and the school won a national championship in 1944. In total, 40 Ute players have been drafted in the NBA or ABA, with 27 of them playing in one or both of those leagues.
