    96-53 on Tuesday evening.Utah put the game away early in the first half with a
    19-2 run that pushed the lead to 32-11. The Utes shot 51.4 percent in the first
    20 minutes and improved their ball control from the first game with just three
    first-half turnovers.We fixed a few things that were broken in our last game,
    Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak said. Its just part of the process early on.With as
    many new faces as we have, (Kyle Kuzma) and Lorenzo and some of those guys are
    doing a pretty good job of expressing how important some of those (details) are.
    We just need to trust the process. Its written in our practice facility to trust
    a lot of things. Cant get too up and too down, but weve just got to keep making
    improvements.Bonam bounced back from a horrific seven-turnover opener with just
    one against Concordia. Kuzma finished with 13 points and eight rebounds and
    Tyler Rawson added 12 points and eight rebounds. Parker Van Dyke scored a
    career-high 15 to go along with five rebounds and four assists.Its been a long
    time coming, said Van Dyke, who missed the last two seasons due to a Mormon
    mission trip. Its almost been three years since my first game as a freshman. Its
    good to be back and its good to make some shots tonight and play some good D. I
    think tonight was just a good game for my confidence and prepared me for the
    rest of the year.The Cavaliers were simply overmatched in every way. They didnt
    have the athleticism to keep up physically and outrebounded 51-33. Concordia
    werent skilled enough and shot just 32 percent from the field, including 5 for
    17 from beyond the 3-point line.Christopher Edward scored a team-high 12 points
    for the Cavaliers while Latrell Wilson chipped in nine points.When we come up
    and play a Pac-12 team, its a great opportunity to test ourselves on a
    significant road trip in a great environment, Concordia coach Brad Barbarick
    said. Its a great experience for our kids playing on the Pac-12 Network. All of
    those things are positives for our program in recruiting.Whenever we can get our
    name out there in a game like this, it just helps us (with) name recognition and
    the opportunity to establish ourselves a little bit more. Were new to D2. This
    is our second year in the GNAC. We were NAIA for a long time. ... For us to step
    up and play here at Utah, thats a great experience for our kids and its great
    for our program.BIG PICTUREConcordia: Tuesday was all about experience for the
    Division II program. The game is just an exhibition for the Cavaliers, who were
    fighting an uphill battle from the opening tip.Utah: The Utes are still
    developing into what type of team theyre going to be with just two significant
    returners on the roster. The first four games are simply warmups that include
    two Division II programs while Utah finds its identity.EASING INKrystkowiak
    doesnt seem concerned about any strength of schedule issues due to opening the
    season with a pair of Division II teams and Coppin State.With our team, there
    needs to be a sense of confidence that youre gaining, Krystkowiak said. You dont
    want to get pummeled. That can be pretty dangerous.You do what you thinks best
    in the scheduling. And I thought in this particular year, things are going to
    start amping up. ... Thats the key for us, to try to get firing on some more
    cylinders and get prepared for league play.UP NEXTConcordia: The Cavaliers play
    California-San Diego Friday in the Doubletree Shootout.Utah: The Utes host
    Coppin State on Friday as they wrap up an opening stretch of with three games in
    six days.

    Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer underwent emergency eye surgery Wednesday
    night and will not coach Thursdays game against the Dallas Cowboys.General
    manager Rick Spielman said Thursday that Zimmer was having issues with his
    vision Wednesday. The teams medical staff first evaluated him before eye
    specialists then determined he would need the emergency surgery for a detached
    retina or risk consequences as serious as potential blindness in the eye,
    Spielman said.Zimmer told NBC before Thursdays game he has another follow-up
    appointment scheduled for Friday morning. He said he could have to rest anywhere
    from three days to two weeks, and might not be able to fly to the Vikings next
    game in Jacksonville on Dec. 11. If Zimmer couldnt fly, he said theres a plan in
    place to drive him to Jacksonville.We have to see how his eye responds to the
    surgery, Spielman said. I do know how intense Coach Zimmer is. Talking with him
    today and with the doctors, as much as he wants to be out there coaching
    tonight, its in his best interest that we get this taking care of. Coach Zimmer
    has never missed a game. I know how hard this is on him. I cant express how hard
    on him it is that he wont be able to coach. But we have to look after his
    health.Vikings speccial teams coach?Mike Priefer will be the interim head coach
    against the Cowboys.dddddddddddd. George Edwards will resume his role as the
    teams defensive coordinator, which will certainly see increased pressure given
    Zimmers expertise in the area.Interim offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and
    offensive line coach Tony Sparano have both been NFL head coaches, and Shurmur
    assumed offensive playcalling duties when Norv Turner resigned Nov. 2, the same
    day Zimmer first discussed his eye surgery.Zimmer had surgery to repair a torn
    retina on his right eye Nov. 1, after he had scratched his eye during the
    Vikings loss to the Chicago Bears on Oct. 31. Doctors had initially told Zimmer
    he ran the risk of going blind in the eye if he did not have the first
    surgery.He was back at work later that day but had a second procedure on his eye
    Nov. 8. His eye appeared bloodshot during a news conference Nov. 9, as the coach
    squinted against bright lights, but Zimmer said that day that his vision was
    good.Asked that day if he had made any adjustments to his schedule because of
    the operation, Zimmer said, No, its back to work, back to the grind. ' ' '
