Does BYU have a women's basketball team? I never read about them in this
Interesting that before last week I wouldn't have known FGC. Mercer sound
like a very good team that likely should have been in the NCAA tournament over
some other teams.If the Cougars can play like they did last game
they have a shot at winning, Go Cougars!
Re: FDRfanYou're not looking hard enough. There is a recent
article about the BYU women's win over SDSU in the WNIT. Not hard to find
at all. If you really want to find it, that is.
Game factors: 1) If refs let them bang (e.g., WCC refs), Haws can be slowed, 2)
Carlino assists/turnovers magnified by fewer possessions slower pace, 3) Zylstra
shooting either spreads or shrinks the court. Overcomeable: 1)
Davies 2 fouls in first 10 minutes, 9 points behind at half, 4 for 14
3-pointers.Prediction: Cougs win if Haws FT are >8,
Carlino's turnovers are 2 3-pointers.
Prediction: Cougs win if Haws FT are >8, Carlino's turnovers 2
Moderator: For some reason the correct text is not showing: Carlino's turnovers less than 5 and Zylstra more than 2 3-pointers.
The women's team is doing fairly well too in the WNIT but for some reason
hardly anyone seem to be attending their games and I wonder why? It seems like
the fans are mostly interested in the men's games and that is so sad.
Those girls are playing their hearts out too and I think they deserve just as
much support. Hopefully more people will start attending and cheering them up
BYU got eaten alive last week on back cuts to the basket. Will this week be any
different even though they expect it. I suspect Nate Austin and Brandon Davies
will continue to make several slide over fouls (big mistakes) AS USUAL.
Can't wait for the game tonight. If the Cougs play like they did against
Washington, it's in the bag. The real question is, which Carlino will show
up? If it's the one that played in non-conference games and the last half
of conference play, we're in trouble. If it's the one that showed up
for the first half of conference play and against Washington, we're onto
the next round. The kid has talent, he just needs to find consistency.I really hope Calvert backs Carlino up. I like his style of play, more than
Cusick's at the PG; keeping Cusick to back up at the 2.It's reasonable to expect 40 points from Haws and Davies combined in this
game, and Haws should have a shot at another 30+ point game.Louis -
It's hard to use the term eaten alive when BYU dominated as much as they
Just what the Cougars don't need: a ball control team that passes and

isn't scared by playing on the road in front of big crowds. This will be a
dog fight unless we play like we did the last week of the season. Then it will
be a nightmare.
We'll crush these guys and they are the champions of the conference that
Florida Gulf Coast is from. Makes you wonder what we would have done in the

took the punch out of these Cougars, and those February/March losses to San
Diego and San Francisco doomed any hope of an at large bid.Mercer is
a good team and BYU will have to bring its "A" game if the Cougars have
any hope of advancing to the next round.
