Dick Harmon: BYU guard Skyler Halford makes most of starting debut
“Jonny Dee is a very talented player,” said Halford. “He’s racing around all the time. We had a great game plan in by the coaches; it was a big team effort in containing him."
So for at least this night, BYU found a shooting guard in Halford, the kid from Orem who earned his stripes on the JC circuit with a lot of big nights just like this.
He’ll take it.
“The basket starts to feels big,” he said of nights when everything seems to drop. “It’s just that feeling you get when you get in a zone. It's a great feeling.”
For the sake of Rose, it was good to see somebody else besides Haws experience this kind of night.
Nights where shooters look at the rim and see a swimming pool.
The Cougars could use more of that.
