Huh? Aren't itches scratched and not "itched"?

BYU is not worthy of an NCAA bid. Go Iona!!

Before we crown these guys the next showtime Lakers remember they lost to Hofstra, Siena and Fairfield. If Hartsock is back close to 100% Cougs will win by double figures.

If BYU's guards start taking dumb shots early, bench them. BYU has played some dumb basketball this year, and Coach Rose needs to show them in no uncertain terms that it ends now. Pound it inside, either passing to the big guys or driving. Play inside-out, not the opposite. And for heaven's sake, stay on the shooters in the corners. Let the big guys rotate over to cover dribble penetration.

If BYU does that, they will probably win this game.

@ Howard
You should remind us how BYU plays in 3k seat arenas vs the 15k seat arenas that Utah is playing in...
Remember? Remember?
That's a really important detail.
Rub it in.

Win or lose, BYU is worthy of their bid to the NCAA tourney. The selection committee has better judgment than trolls.

Why would any team be afraid of this BYU lineup? Cougs may keep it close for a half but they'll get blown out by a team that shouldn't even be in the tourney. Gaels by 20 at least. And by the way is Noah ok, from the looks of the injury and pain he was in I'm surprised he's even walking.

I want my Cougs to win. However, when you get into the Tourney, good guard play is so very important. I'll take a good, experienced, confident Senior point guard over a freshman, poor shooting, turn-over prone guard any time. We need a strong Carlino in this game and tourney so much. Will he deliver?

I love your optimism, but as strong as a healthy Hartsock is to the team, who's going to need to pound the ball into him (and Davies) without turning the ball over? Correct. Carlino. Let's face it, the way we've played over the past 4-5 games total, really ever since the SF game where Carlino shot "lights out" in the first half, the team has struggled collectively. I will be beyond happy with a simple win. The double-digits would be nice, but I'll take a W any way we can, and Carlino will be KEY to a "W". Go, Cougs!!
