Chris Collinsworth is 6' 9", returns from his mission and should be a presence
inside and out, assuming he can get into game shape after his mission. He'll
fill in JT's minutes. Kyle Collinsworth will be a freshman, is 6' 6" and will
fill the void left by Tyler Haws departure on a mission. Justin Hamilton is 6'
11" and went to the same high school as Haws and Emery. He's played his first
two years at Iowa State (started every game this year) but just announced he is
leaving I State and wants to play closer to home for his final two years. BYU
has one more scholorship to give for next year. I hope they jump all over the
Justin Hamilton opportunity. We need someone alongside Davies to give us an
Collingsworth is 6' 6", perhaps still growing, and probably most appropriately
used as a small forward in college. Good shooter close in, not much range, but
a great passer. He's not BYU's answer to beef up the inside play.
Collinsworth jr. is a point guard. He's got size and he's a great shooter but
he's no banger.
I think Collinsworth younger brother is coming to the Y next year. I can't
remember how tall he is, perhaps 6' 10". I may be wrong.
My biggest concern against K-State is their inside presence . . .. but I have
had that same concern all year.The Cougs need some more grit in
rebounding and defending. Too bad James Anderson has not developed. Perhaps he
will make an effort to add some strength this summer.Collinsworth
may be able to help next year, but BYU needs some bigs if it hopes to go any
further in the Big Dance. I love their wing players -- and Fredette and Loyd
are incredible. Hartsock and Davies need to get tougher, Collinsworth needs to
contribute, and Anderson needs to develop. Are there any other bigs
out there for the Cougars?
Possibly the most confusing, dumbest expression in sports:The "three
ball". Is this pool?What about the "one ball" or the "two ball"?Give it up sports writers and announcers. Lose the "three ball".
Dick but, do you ever proofread what you write?
Inside, outside, dude, take it through my living room if you want. Just keep it
happening. Great season. All the Ute whining can't take that away.
running their offense now that they have one victory in the tournament. There
were a lot of upsets and very close games. This thing is very wide open. They
most wins by double digit seeds so far.If BYU will play with good
fundamentals and run the offense they have good shot. The defense was pretty
good much of the time. BYU bigs just need to concentrate on rebounding and take
what comes to them. If they will box out that will offset some of
KState's athletic ability inside. BYU seems to be able to stop FL
from going inside at least part of the time. After watching other
games BYU look like they have a chance.
