Nice win Cougars! Let's keep it up!

Great game for the Cougars tonight. My question is, where was this team at the WCC tournament? If they would have played with this intensity and with the confidence of tonight, the Cougars would probably be playing in the NCAA. Really a yo-yo season.

Ogden, UT

Good win, as Carlino goes, so goes the Y.

You pretty well know what your going to get from Haws. Davies is fairly consistent, but whether Carlino is on or off seems to be the determining factor.

Every game gives the Y more experience, keep rollin Cougs.

Cougar highlights:

* loss by five to the number one team in the country
* 2-0 record against Pac 12 competition
* 22 victories,--many teams would love that
* television exposure
* beat Utah, Utah State, and Weber. 5-1 in football & basketball

Not perfect, but very good. I'll take that

Now we see why BYU wasn't invited into the conference.

They want a team who would guaranty wins for the existing teams. This increases the number of teams qualifying for bowl games, and the NCAA tournament.

Nice win for the Cougars but don't think too highly of it. After all it was against a Pac 10 team.

Columbia, MO

Great win against UW. The Huskies played well, but the Cougars played better. Now its time to beat a good team from the southeast.

Payson, UT

Crowd of 7511??

Is that how we should reward a team for making it to post season play?


Attendance = 7,511? Way to support your team, BYU fans. (Or byu "fans" as duckhunter would say.)

Iowa City, IA

Great game Cougars! I want Sharp back, we need his hops, defense and a few poster dunks!

Saint Paul, MN

This is pretty much the team Coug fans had been hoping to watch all season ... at least during the second half, for certain. Nice job, team!


They will need Sharp's athleticism in the next game. Hope he can play.

Gilbert, AZ

The Cougs love playing against pac10 "competition." Third year in a row of NOT one and done...man, I love watching my team in post season action!

Chandler, AZ

We all love coach Rose but he almost let this one get away and was basically out coached....again. Playing Cusick and Calvert in the backcourt...together, for most of the first half was nearly a disaster. I know Carlino turned it on in the 2nd half but Rose has got to stay with him a bit longer and not be so quick to pull him out. A Carlino who is working through his consistencies is better than either Cusick or Calvert. And, wow, playing both of them together? Ouch, talk about lack of athleticism.

Spokane Ute
Spokane, WA

That's a decent win for BYU, a applaud their effort. I have never seen a coach (Washington's Lorenzo Romar) do so little with so much talent. Great recruiter, horrible game day coach.

AZ Blue & Red
Gilbert, AZ

Great win and good game. Wish I were in Utah. Would love to go to the game. 22,000 seats and best we can do is a tad more than 7500??? If the next game is at BYU I would hope the fans will Rise and Shout and fill the place. Want to help them win that is how.

Layton, UT

Good job cougs. Does Haws have it in him to keep it going?

Salt Lake City, UT


Seriously, attendance smack?

BYU's 7,500 NIT fans would have been 2nd last year. Iowa topped 13k, and was at least a couple thousand more than any other NIT game last night. And lets not forget, this was an actual warm bodies in seats attendance, not padded by 2 or 3 thousand phantom season ticket holder no shows.

I'm expecting 10,000+ for the next game.

Norco, CA

Fun game to watch. Lots of scoring and great transition b-ball for the cougars. Way to Go!

Orem, UT

Congratulations BYU on a great opening round NIT win over Washington!

Hopefully many thousands more Cougar fans will join us at the next game.

If the Cougars had played more games like they played last night, they would have been dancing in the Big Dance tomorrow night. BYU is now 7-0 in home NIT games and should be hosting Tenn/Mercer in the 2nd round on Friday, Saturday or Monday.

Go Cougs!
