College basketball guru Ken Pomeroy, who attended the BYU-Baylor game on Saturday, has some observations about what he saw.

"Based on his first appearance in a BYU game, he’s an upgrade on a team that needs a playmaker," Pomeroy writes of Cougar freshman Matt Carlino. "For those still thinking BYU is a clear 3rd in the WCC regular season race, that didn’t appear to be the case on Saturday. Once Carlino settles into the role, there’s enough here (especially when Stephen Rogers returns from knee surgery in a month) to match what Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s bring to the table."

Turning to football, KSL's Rod Zundel sat down with quarterback Tanner Mangum, who is committed to sign with BYU in February, for a question-and-answer session.
