We were cheated. Haws was obviously fouled at the end just like he was all night.

Playing 5 on 7 is getting old.

The officiating tonight was obviously one sided to the benefit of St Marys. Haws was obviously fouled at the end as he was for most of the night.

Great effort in a tough place to play Cougars. Too bad Davies' monster game went for naught.

Carlino missing two free throws with under two minutes and a chance to tie the game late was a killer.

A foul could have been called on Dellavedova on Haws' last shot, but the blocking foul called earlier with BYU working to tie really hurt; no replay so it was hard to tell if it was justified.

Congratulations to Tyler on becoming only the 2nd Sophomore in BYU history to reach the 1,000-point milestone!

Carlino makes the occasional amazing pass/shot. However, he takes the game away from Haws/Davies with out-of-control play. His performance tonight (1-5 shooting/5 turnovers) in a crucial game suggests he...felt the pressure of the moment. Hopefully he can play better to finish out the season.

Let me guess Cougie fans, it's the refs fault, right? Always trying to find someone and something to blame but not your own team.

Come on! St. Mary's made more plays than BYU did. Give credit where credit is due.

If one was to read the reaction of BYU fans to every loss you could only surmise the only reason they're not unbeaten year after year, maybe even never, ever lost a game was because of the official have it in for them.
It's such nonsense.

Why are people still complaining about refs. Carlino was terrible and haws was all over the place. Rose continues to play zylstra instead of sharp for some odd reason. This team has so many problems I do not even know where to begin. Byu has lacked a true point guard for years and better find one for next season because carlino is not the answer. You cannot blame the refs for bad defense, tons of turnovers, and lack of talent.

"If one was to read the reaction of BYU fans to every loss you could only surmise the only reason they're not unbeaten year after year, maybe even never, ever lost a game was because of the official have it in for them."

What team doesn't have a few fans who are constantly complaining about the officiating?

Besides, Mildred in Fillmore is a Utah troll, not a BYU fan. Other than her/his tongue-in-cheek comments, the only other comment blaming the loss on the officiating also came from a Utah fan, so stop whining about it.

"Why are people still complaining about refs."

Besides a few Utah trolls, who, specifically is complaining about the refs?

Now that you mention it, however, how do you explain every single player who played at least 15 min last night picking up 2 to 5 fouls, except ONE, Saint Mary's star player, Dellavedova, who closely guarded Tyler Haws for 40 minutes without picking up a single foul?

In an NBA comparison that many of us our familiar with feels like the Y is the Jazz and St. Mary's is the Spurs. I think they have lost before they even get off the bus. Here's to hoping it doesn't take a 19 game losing streak before they down St. Mary's. Although, the game was close last night I never once had the inclination that the Y was going to win. They just can't string together enough big plays against these guys.

Give it up for Dellavadova and St. Mary's, they know how to win and what to do to get there. BYU is still trying to figure that out.

Zylstra has actually been playing a little better, but his liabilities still seem to outweigh his benefits. Especially as a Senior. Sharp brings a strong rebounder to the court which is sorely needed.
