Matt Carlino came out Friday looking like he was determined to pad his stats against an inferior opponent, firing up a bunch of outside shots to begin the game. He wasn’t making them, however, and quickly found himself on the bench. He finished 3-13 against Mount St. Mary’s and followed that up with a 5-17 performance against Colorado Mesa.

In the absence of Haws, Collinsworth and Winder provided rock-solid guard play on Friday night, combining for 35 points on 14-19 shooting, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. Collinsworth continued to play well on Saturday, while Winder had an off-night shooting.

As mentioned earlier, Bartley showed well, demonstrating his natural athleticism while also proving he has a decent shooting touch, knocking down 17-21 shots including free throws.

Iowa State, the Cougars' next opponent, is giving #7 Michigan all it can handle as I write this post.

I hope Haws can play (if he is healthy). The Cougars' real second real test will be how they perform against a very good Cyclone squad.

Coach Rose's ability to scout ISU and prepare his players will be on the line this Wednesday night. I look forward to this upcoming game and hope BYU will be ready.

Cougar fans should fill the Marriott Center for this one!

I hate to say it - but when your bigs get 8 shots out of 62 - it shows that lack of balance that is the cougs Achilles heel, again...love to watch the up tempo, wide open game. It's a great game to watch. But what is fun in the preseason, won't win a conference championship. And in the WCC you better win the conference or book tickets for the NIT.
