Dusan Mahorcic’s Short Stint With Utah Utes Basketball
Mahorcic joined the Utes as a transfer from Illinois State, where he spent two seasons. Before that, he was playing basketball in Junior College. When Mahorcic was making his decision, he narrowed his final list down to Utah, Texas and Clemson.

Mahorcic missed some time due to a knee injury he suffered against BYU on November 27. The rotation tightened up with Mahorcic on suspension. Mahorcic played in 13 games this season and started the last two contests before his suspension. He averaged 5.5 points and 4.1 rebounds per contest.
