The game was in SLC because BYU has their Christmas show at the Marriott. This
was a home game for BYU. For those who think that BYU isn't
talented. They are the most talented BYU team over the last 20 years. Jimmer is talented. If he can develop a tear drop floater he will be
unstoppable in college. Emery is the most underrated player on the
team. His lateral quickness is amazing. The entire zone works because he can
cover 2 players. He reads passing lanes better than anyone on the team. Davies is going to be pretty good as long as he can stay out of foul
trouble. His 4 foul was an absolute joke.There is not a NCAA team
that would not be getting these three substantial minutes. Kyle
Collinsworth is getting better every game.Collinsworth, Hartsock,
Rogers and Abouo all really good solid players.
Arizona did not want to play at Provo, so they settled for the ESA. I think
Rose got his revenge on Arizona's baby-like character to not return a game on a
team's home floor by waxing the team twice. I hope BYU gets them again in the
first round. Easy victory.Arizona is always known as one of the
great NCAA teams, so beating them on neutral court goes a farther way than
beating them at home. Can't wait for them to feast on a another PAC
team on Saturday!
I agree to an extent with some tasteless crowd taunting, but living in Phoenix,
and going to football, baseball & basketball games in Tucson, the Utah crowd
was quite mild.And being an ASU fan, I cheer for anyone who thumps the
cats.Thanks for the beat down cougs!Miller was quoted as calling BYU
"an elite bb program"That's quite a compliment from a classy and
Why exactly was the game at ESA? Was this because the pacx would not travel to
provo to play the cougars?
@Back.. I personally love the chants from the student section. This is college
basketball man! (or woman) I love the "left, right" chant
and a couple other good ones from saturdays game "You got Jimmered *clap,
clap, clap clap clap* And "You got swatted, *clap, clap, clap clap clap*Love it! Keep it up SS! The team looked awesome. Cant
believe we have to wait clear til saturday to watch them play again. ULCA
shouldnt put up much of fight, they are 4-4 and tied for last in the PAC10. I
just hope its not a trap game. Go Cougs!!!
This game answered a few questions I had about BYU's ball club. Arizona has more
athleticism at 4 of the starting 5 positions, and BYU made things look easy. On
top of that, the game was played on a neutral court (and BYU notoriously shoots
better in the Marriot than anywhere else). Also, I think Jimmer showed why he
should be a first round draft pick. That long distance bomb while he was double
teamed in the first half blew my mind.That being said, conference
play will be a lot harder this year than ever before. I still think BYU will
drop three or four games in conference. However, this is the best team that BYU
has had in years, and I believe they will finish the season with less losses
than the BYU football team.
@ back,They don't call it the sixth man for nothin. Its about gettin in
the opposing teams heads.
I've been a BYU fan for years, and enjoy watching this years BBall team.
Congrats on the fine play recently! However, there is something that just grates
on me, and that is the 'taunting' of the opposing team that continues. For
example, the 'air ball' chant or when the opposing team member fouls out and the
footsteps 'right/left' are shouted out. Yeah, the rest of the world does it, but
it really doesn't help our team -- it just gets old! Give the opposing team an
applause for their effort, lose the 'air ball' chant. Is there anyone else that
feels this way? I'd love for the effort of the fans to match that of the teams
and the mission of the university. Time to stand a little higher!
Has Cris B. made any predictions on the Las Vegas Bowl? Guess who'se going to
get lit up?
Great game, Jimmer is the man 33 points and an awesome first half. I hope BYU TV
can inprove there quality of production to match the BYU TEAM and JIMMER. The
production quailty is no better than the Mountain at this point no HD and I
agree with the above comment, font size of the runnin score is to small.
Wonderful game! I am very impressed with Brandon Davies! He has some big time
moves and can almost score at will close to the hoop. He rebounds well and plays
defense well also! BYU's next star-Brandon Davies!
Don't worry Jackson Emery - after the final is over with you will get back on
your feat feeling the flow again. Great team effort and we outrebounded Ariz
which was where our strong point. That long hair Ariz guy took a drive on
Hartsock head was on purpose and it wasn't a rebound after I replayed it. That
was a dirty play of what he did to Hartsock. He'll be ready for UCLA and C.
Collingsworth will play vs ucla.
Great Win! Good to see everyone step up. A lot of times you hear about how teams
are deep of have x amount of guys in a rotation. There is a difference between
having a rotation where guys can come in and give you quality minutes, and a
rotation where guys can come in and keep the game plan and the flow of the game
going, AND do it for as long as they are asked. We have the latter. GO COUGS!
Good game. I got to watch on BYUTV online. I would listen to KSL at the same
time, but the radio feed is about a 15 second delay. What a game.
Jimmer is really fun to see play. AZ defense shut down BYU on one trip down the
court so Jimmer puts up a 25+ foot 3 pt. shot. The opponent just has to come
get him or he will shoot lights out. When they do, the other 4 guys have some
open shooting lanes. The bench really played the defense on AZ.
They could not get anything going on their inside game, as Anderson kept them
quiet with smothering defense. Frank Layton's comments were good to
hear for all Cougar fans. Jimmer's Sr. year will be fun for him and the rest of
Cougar faithful. Ucla next week and another W for the Cougars.
Now I'd like to watch AZ play Michigan and see AZ win by 20. Just to answer
future questions...Go Y
I have been wondering if this team really is good or not. I have not doubts
after today. They really are tough. Davies is looking better all the time and
Collinsworth is an excellent player as well. With a few balls bouncing their
way, the Cougars could go far this year.
Even better than I had hoped for!!!!! GO COUGS!!!!!
I love how well they play as a team. Congratulations team and Coach Rose.
I went out and got an HDMI cable for my laptop to watch byutv on my new big
screen TV. And this great game sure made it worthwhile! Way to go, Cougars!
By the way, Frank Layden's comments on Jimmer were spot on. Fun to watch!
That's the best defensive effort I've seen from a BYU in a long time. Tremendous
determination. I'm going to enjoy ever single game I can watch of Jimmer in a
BYU uniform. The kid is unbelievable. Finally, could someone ask BYUtv to
increase the font size of the score and time remaining on their digital display?
I think the score is in 4 point font. I can't read it and I have 20/20 vision.
"Noah Hartsock left the game midway through the first half with a
concussion and lacerated mouth after taking an elbow fighting for a
rebound." Uhh, NO!!! He took a skull to the face.
Mrs. B, Mrs. B, can Cris come out and play.I guess the Cris B.
strategy is to predict a loss in every game the Y plays and, of course, sooner
or later it will happen and he will proclaim his superior skills in predicting
game outcomes. MARK IT DOWN! Bwahahahaha!What a great game to be
at. We simply were firing on all cylinders. Missing Collinsworth
was one thing, but when Hartsock went down I thought we would be in big trouble.
Who would have every considered it possible that, with our best 3
bigs (Collinsworth, Hartsock, and Davies) playing a combined 20 minutes due to
injuries and fouls, we would win the game let alone blow Arizona out?We have a deep team. Anderson was a man inside and I think played his best
game. Our defense was awesome. Switching between man to man and zone
completely baffled Arizona and we swarmed to the ball so well that they simply
struggled to get shots off. Jones shot lights out and scored 20 in
the second half to keep them in the game.Arizona's Williams
struggled with our D but showed his is the real deal.
I was not able to watch this game. Apparently, so many people wanted to watch
the game via byutv on-line that the site was down...or just had too much traffic
for me to get it to load. Works fine now.So, it was the radio,
which doesn't really give one a true feel for how good or bad a team looks. I'm
glad the Cougars won but it sure would have been nice to see it.
this a great team! what will they be like with the other collinsworth? whew! the
good memories are coming back again of the magnificent seven of '87. what a
team, i got to see the game on kbyu tv the picture still isn't good(digital
blocks) but i wouldn't miss the cougs.
Cris B. | 8:06 p.m. Dec. 10, 2010 "arizona will light byu up
worse than this game"So much for Arizona lighting up BYU.Great game for Jimmer, especially coming on the heals of that draining
trip to his hometown earlies this week.33 points against the team
with the best record in the PAC 10 coming into this game (82 points in the last
two games vs the Wildcats.)Good luck to Noah recovering from that
nasty melee under the basket.Next up, UCLA!Keep it
WOOOOOOHOOOOO! Loved watching this game on BYUTV! What a great win for the
cougs. Everybody was hustling big time. Sure felt sorry for Jackson though.
He just could not get the ball to go through the hoop. Great defensive effort
from him though!
Jimmer is a man among children. The cougs are for real this year, let's get
pumped cougar fans!
The Cougs are for real this year. More importantly, Dave Rose is a fantastic
Good game, Cougars!But somebody should really tell James Anderson to
pass the ball! Every time he touched it he tried to score. It was painful to
watch.Oh well, at least we won!
Including every school in the state, That'll be the best college basketball game
played in that city. The second best will be the win against Hawai'i, the third
best will be BYUs win over utah simply due to lack of a challenge.AZ
wanted revenge, I guess the pac-10 just ain't good enough!GO COUGARS
Great game I got to watch on TV in Texas.If I was in utah i'd be
there.GO COUGARSJimmer jammed those lamecats.
