BYU has really found its identity. Rose has done a great job at finding the rotation that works! Great team effort tonight! Everybody contributed. Looking forward to Baylor on the 17th!

This team is for real and IS the best team in the state. The end of season record will prove it.

Wow. Makes you wish for do-overs with Wisconsin.

Impressive performance by BYU. I love the balance that this team has. It makes it that much harder to defend when you have six guys putting up double figures.

How about the emergence of Nate Austin? The guy's got a smooth shot and hustles his butt off. If he can keep it going, it'll be a huge help going forward while Chris Collinsworth is out.

Noah Hartsock has been Mr. Consistent thus far. It's been needed since Davies has struggled to start the season. We've got a really good young team. With the added depth of Carlino come the Baylor game, we have a legitimate shot to upset the Bears at home and compete for the WCC championship.

Go Cougars!

Great game Cougars!

"Six Cougars scored in double figures, including Brock Zylstra (15), Charles Abouo (15), Stephen Rogers (15), Nate Austin (15) and Brandon Davies (11). Both Rogers and Austin came off the bench."

You're not going to lose many games with that kind of balanced scoring. Nate Austin may be the surprise player of the year for BYU.

The Utes up next; the HC is going to be rocking -- at least for the Cougars!

Let's focus on Utah now, they are apparently a force to bereckoned... phhhaa ha ha ha sorry I couldn't hold a straight face...I tried LOL!!!!

Davies has a playground one-on-one game: wait, wait, bounce, bounce, bounce, shot. Too much time, defenses collapse and adjust to teammates as well. Know your move before the ball hits your hand, make it quickly.

Baylors size and athleticism will make that game hard to win but at least the way the cougs are playing it makes you think they may have a chance. Love how Austin is playing, hopefully he can stay out of foul trouble, we will need him.
Would like to see Harrison start shooting better, I'd like to see him get more PT. Love the fact that so many players can put up good numbers.

But gordon monson said Weber was the best team in the state.

My son and I watched Austin as a senior in high school and wonder why Coach Rose was offering him a scholarship. I guess that's why he's the coach and I'm not.

When they are at full strength Weber is the second best team in Utah with USU a close third. Haven't seen SUU or UVU play so it's hard to say who is the fourth or fifth best.

Opponents hoping to get a break when Davies is in foul trouble have to deal with Austin! Its as if Davies is there to 'soften' his opponent just enough for Austin squashes them flat! He is a beast, and fun to watch.

The Cougs are looking better with every game. Really have the TEAM concept down.

It will be really interesting how they do against Baylor.

But first--Utah!

Provo, UT

Excellent game by BYU. Now don't go having a "letdown game" against Utah!

Highland, UT

Hey wildcat obviously the refs really affected the outcome. I think weber st. actually had them until the refs intervened.

"Opponents hoping to get a break when Davies is in foul trouble have to deal with Austin!"

Hartsock's more aggressive play around the basket is something to be reckoned with as well. He scored 19 tonight and didn't even attempt one three. Like a big man that can shoot, but glad to see he's not settling for just the out side shot.

Inside depth is something that the Cougars haven't enjoyed too much. This season seems to be an exception.

sacramento, ca

good luck the rest of the year Weber State.

BYU seems to be be steadily improving with each game --- Much improved from the time they played Utah State. It has taken a little time to sort out the main group, and others have stepped up to where we have some good subs. It will be interesting to see how Carlino contributes --- Should be a fun season.

Orem, Utah

Nate "Circus" Austin is just plain ridiculous!

Stay the Course
Salt Lake City, utah

only 81-43 if BYU plays its non stating 5 and coach Rose calls off the attack in the last 10 minutes of the game
I suspect they make go for 110
