Chris B, I am a fan of all local players. I love to see all the
local players do well during and after college. I am not a fan of ADs that
don't even try to develop some intra-state competition. The tax dollars
that support Utah, comes from the same source as Weber State, Southern Utah, as
well as Utah State. These schools deserve first consideration when scheduling
of the same level. It is just too bad that the Utah AD/coach
doesn't have the courage to show that they are the 4th or 5th best
basketball program in Utah. Sounds like progress.
@jealous,And ute alum in the NBA(which this article is about)
dominate byu players in the NBA.LOL
major,Who was the last quality nba player byu produced? After all,
wouldn't a "quality NBA player" be playing quality minutes in the
christyBYU owns U in basketball!7 in a row, 11 of the
last 12, 12-3 during the Dave Rose era, 149-145 overall
Major,Why don't you think there are teams lining up offering
first round picks for first round Jimmer? Certainly the kings want to get rid of
him. Maybe the kings know he is so valuable they are demanding two first round
picks for him?What's your guess?
Actually Weber State is making the most contribution - in one player, but
looking at current production of professional players is an indication of past
greatness of college teams.Recently, BYU and Weber State are the
only ones that have produced NBA quality players . Maybe that is why Utah
refuses to play Weber State...I wish all the local players well. I
just wish the Utah AD had the courage that their players demonstrate.
Congratulations to Weber State and the University of Utah as they are the only
local schools with alum who are making meaningful contributions in the NBA.Go utes!
