Laval?Yes hedgie; it was a preseason, exhibition game. Utah might
have even been able to beat Laval.
SpikeIt was a joke. I'm sure there are some fine players in canada.
No not much basketball in Canada just Steve NashWe play hockey
utahcountyuteCan always rely on a troll to find something negative
to say, even in a complete domination blow-out.As to Canada playing
basketball; you might want to refer that question to Steve Nash. I
did Google Laval University Basketball and they are a decent team up north,
usually 1st or 2nd in their division. Doesn't speak much for Canadian
basketball since we crushed them last year and this year. I would guess that
the better Canadian players get scholarships to US universities (as Nash
did).I hope that helps answer your sincere questions and interest in
all things related to BYU basketball, Mr. Ute.
Whewwwww! Laval? For a minute I thought coach Edwards had come out of
53% from the stripe? shamefuldo they even play bball in
Attended the game. Obvious first half jitters by the newer
players.Second half was much better shooting and all round play.
Nervousness seemed to be gone.Clearly a better team than we had last
year. I am still concerned that we are undersized up front and will struggle
against the teams with the bigs unless we can run them off the floor. (Which we
are capable of.) We appear deeper than last year with good talent
displayed by the new guys. I saw definite improvement from most of the new guys
from last year's squad.Fredette and Emery looked fantastic. Made 11
of 12 shots, moved the ball well, played tight D.We were concerned
that some of the guys that struggled at the line last year continued to do so
again last night. However, the guys that will be getting most of the game time
and most of the free throws played very limited minutes so our percentage will
be much higher than this game showed. All in all, a fun game to
watch. These pre-season games let you get to know the new guys better.
Unlike other uni's, BYU beat's the versions of South Baptist St with ease. It's
going to be a great season with excellent talent.
