Great team effort by the Cougars tonight.Lillard looks like a pretty
good player, but he looked like he was trying a little too hard.BYU
fans know Jimmer, and Lillard is no Jimmer.
Nate's the next Jimmer for BYU. This kid is amazing. Circus play after circus
play. He definitely knows how to concentrate under duress.If the
Utah game isn't a blow-out for BYU, it'll be because the players took the Utes
too lightly. Or, maybe that won't even matter.As for Baylor, can't
wait for THAT one!
Great game, but BYU could spend a little time on their free throw shooting--C-.
It could cost them a game or 2.I don't remember WSU missing a single
foul shot tonight--A.
>I don't remember WSU missing a single foul shot tonightThey were
17 of 19.BYU was 8 of 13, with the bulk of the misses coming from Nate
Austin, who was 0 of 3 from the line.
Bastiatarian - thanks for correcting that.Really - why grading this
basketball? I thought the grading was for BYU football.Don't worry
utah up north, we won't push too hard on u because we have to be energy ready
for Baylor along with Carlino at the MC.Go Young Cougars!
WhatsInItForMe, I have a feeling it could be another 25 years before we see the
true "next Jimmer". Jimmers don't grow on trees...
Agree with Florwood . . Jimmer's a once-in-two-generations player. Hey, I'm
loving Austin (and feeling warm fuzzies towards the whole team), but his skills
are merely solid, not lead-story-on-ESPN quality.Last year, you knew
where the rock was going and still couldn't stop it. This year the problem for
opposing defenses is the opposite . . the ball could go anywhere, and at least
four guys on the floor can score inside or out. That's tough to defend. They may
not be ready to challenge the big boys yet, but they look good. We'll see how
they do against Baylor and how things change when Carlino's eligible.Props to Coach Rose for getting the post Jimmer/Jackson era off to a solid
start. I thought it would take a while for people to figure their roles out, but
everyone seems comfortable. That's good coaching.
