Hartstock is a man among boys.
Welcome back Roger! And a life saver on Cusic. Now we need to move the second
half to start at the first half to be Patient and feed the ball to Hartsock and
Playing in the tight small outhouse type gyms is a different experience for the
Cougars. They are trying to adjust to that with their play. I think they will
improve. The most "massive" facility on the road is probably the
Gonzaga gym at 6,000 capacity....wowee. I can't wait until these WCC teams come
to Provo...UC San Diego learned that in a hurry...."Toreros"...doesn't
that team strike fear in our hearts? Now the Cougars have San Francisco and
Santa Clara in back to back home games. Blow the doors off of these teams and
get this conference under control Cougars.
I hope Carlino learns a few things from Cusick. Cusick played with control and
poise. His 3's came with the inside/outside game. He had a lot of open looks
but didn't take them, he kept feeding Hartsock, knowing his role isn't as a
primary scorer. The first half drove me nuts. Guards stopped feeding
Davies and Hartsock. Thank you, Coach Rose, for getting it straightened out at
halftime. Go Cougars!! Great road win.
Noah came out in the second half and was huge. Rose just needed his cougs to be
more patient than they were in a cold-shooting first half. (and just get the
ball to Noah)
It's very nice to have the kind of depth where you can have different players
step up each night.
Looks like the utey trolls were out late lastnight celebrating thier big victory
over WSU. Too busy watching reruns to be trolling I guess. Now that's a
first!!! But you have to give the utes credit... that was a big surprise... to
pull out the W against a 9-5 team. Congrats to the utes for getting win number
