Blue roundup: More to BYU basketball team than meets the eye
Dan Wolken writes, "The fastest, strongest, most athletic team at the West Coast Conference tournament also happens to be the whitest.

And yet, in so many ways, no team in the country is as capable of challenging our perceptions of race and basketball and what it means to be talented in a game where the majority of Division I players are black."
