    Go read what I said, trolls. I said the 1 point changed how the game was played. In no way did I say the Cougars lost because of a call by the officials.

    But obviously facts won't change anything. You will still come here and spew your hatred, while posts actually about the game/article will not make it past the filters.

    Officiating? Really? Only losers complain about officiating, while winners thank god. Yet neither had anything to do with the outcome.

    BYU had a decent year, you can't expect your team to be one-and-done every year. This year you are not that good.

    A pathetic end to a pathetic season. Minus three players this had got to be the least talented team since the final Roger Reid season, and other than the win totals many similarities to that season - trouble filling the.Marriott center, mid season adding a player from the football team, etc. I feel for Rose, other than the big three the rest of this team couldn't make UVU's squad! I say send them all packing minus
    Haws and Carlino.

    Disappointing loss, but congratulations to San Diego who shot the ball well in the 2nd half and made their free throws when it counted.

    BYU certainly didn't lose because of Davies and Haws. Unfortunately they didn't have enough around them. And just too many mental errors for the Cougars.

    Officiating. Once again I walk away from a WCC game disgusted with the horrible state of officiating. It's pretty amazing that someone can body check another player and not get called for it. I guess a body check in the WCC is only a foul when the perpetrator is 270 and also plays D-line.

    One call can really change a game. Case in point: the "foul" called on Cusick on a Johnny Dee runner. Replay clearly showed there was zero contact. Yet Dee was awarded a chance at a three point play, which he converted. Later in the game, that point made a difference, since Carlino's three with 6 seconds left only pulled them within one. Take away that awful call and maybe Carlino ties it. Or maybe SD fouls before the shot to take away the chance at a tie. Still, awful officiating did affect this game.

    Double bonus with over 8 minutes remaining in the second half, and Rose can't figure out how to take advantage of the size differential up front. Guess you can't blame this one on the officials, can you?

    That was ugly, but what did you expect it is exactly how the cougs played all year. Open try outs next month, nobody on this years team should be guaranteed a spot next season, except for Haws.

    We had a good run in this tournament, but we were finally knocked out by a power house program.

    Finally, the season is over!

    Well, expectations are over now, anyway.

    I haven't watched much Cougar basketball this year, but the fans all told me it's "fun" and "exciting". So I turn this on, and I must say it is the ugliest ball I've seen all year... and I'm a Utah fan! I see Brandon Davies and two bad teams playing right now. BYU's zone is a mask for their defensive inabilities. Kaufusi, Austin and Zylstra can't defend a guy without hacking. Carlino doesn't look like he's gotten any better since he was the #1 rated 8th grader in the country. But San Diego isn't good enough to just take it to a team, so this may come down to an ending similar to the game right before it with both teams trying to lose the game.
