Utes begin honoring Majerus

SALT LAKE CITY — Fans attending Wednesday’s Utah-Boise State game in the Huntsman Center Wednesday will receive a commemorative patch to honor former Runnin’ Utes coach Rick Majerus, who passed away Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 64.

Majerus will be honored with a moment of silence before tipoff and a commemorative video presentation will shown. The Utes will wear a red patch with the initials “RM” on their uniforms for the remainder of the season.

Additional recognition will come later in the year, including the retirement of Majerus’ trademark white sweater is planned.
