Chris BThe Zags would compete and beat any team in the mighty Pac, Zona
has showed that they aren't unbeatable even at home. Based on letting the
Utes hang around
@Chris BChris, BYU should walk all over this pre-season top 20 team.
After watching Gonzaga, they are not even close to being a top 50 team. Mika
should have his way all night long over their front court at simple ease. The
Zags inside presents is very lacking. Watch their games and I'm quite sure
anyone would agree. Haws should be able to launch at will and should score at
least 35 points. BYU wins this one by at least 11 points one would think.
I'm a bit tired of Collinsworth going for all the glory when he hasn't
earned the right. But, unfortunately, Haws does not demand the ball. Yeah, he
missed that little jumper. But I'd rather have Haws miss than Collinsworth
shooting, shooting, shooting. Missing, missing, missing. I
don't think the team should practice at all next week. Everyday...as long
as they can, stand at the free-throw line pumping freebies. Really? Can't
hit 65% of your throws? That improvement alone wins them four of their losses.
Jarkarus,Don't be so sure, I think Utah may hang better. And you do realize that Gonzaga isn't even ranked in some polls and
Arizona is the number one team in the country? Wouldn't any team on
average do better against an unranked team than they would the best team in the
country. And doesn't byu have an amazing rpi, almost as good as
Gonzaga's? Shouldn't byu be able to beat a team that isn't even
ranked in all polls? Why not predict a win for byu. According to how good byu is
per their rpi, shouldn't byu be able to beat Gonzaga? And yet
the best prediction you will give your cougars is losing less than Utah will to
the best team in the country?Lol!
Coach needs to recruit outside Utah county.Go nationally for some bigs.Shooting 25 ft. jumpers won't get the job done.Defense and free
throw shooting is pitiful.
the Utes will lose by more points to Zona than Byu to Gonzaga Mark that down
BYU will win this game going away. Gonzaga is clearly not the caliber team as in
years past. Mika will have a monster game inside against this ZAG squad.
I'm hoping this is not on TV, so I'm not tempted to watch. I am
hoping, however, that the Utah - Arizona game is on TV. That game will be
First of all, I am a big Rose supporter but I was left wondering why he left
Collinsworth in the game in the 2nd ot. C was clearly tired and he
couldn't hit his free throws. Also, I have to wonder if fresh bench
players would be better than very very tired starters in the 3rd ot.
Well I guess if BYU was in the PAC-12 or another elite BCS conference then they
would have a chance to compete with Gonzaga. But unfortunately they are
not...Im sadOnward and Upward
So Matt Carlino lost his starting spot because he was turning the ball over too
much. I have watched every single game this year, and Kyle Collinsworth is a
bigger ball hog than any other player. how many times did he try to do it all
himself in this game and turn the ball over? he had more turnovers than he did
points! not to mention his horrendous free throw percentage. IMO Kyle needs to
be more the team player and stop trying to do it all himself. I bleed blue but
this loss is on his bad play.
I'll be surprised if byu loses by less than 15. Gonzaga isn't even
that amazing of a team(they aren't even ranked in all polls) and with
byu's incredible RPI we keep hearing about, on paper byu should be able to
compete and have a good chance to win right byu fans?I think we all
know whats coming. And it will be sweet.Gonzaga 86byu 70
BYU was outcoached in the 2nd overtime period when they quit attacking. It took
everything out of the momentum they had going.
Will-- The final score represents 3-- yes, 3-- over times. The score at the end
of regulation was tied at 80. Yes, BYU needs to improve their defense but the
rest of your comment doesn't exactly fit this game necessary.
By the way, defense may be an area BYU could focus on. How many games are they
going to score over 95 points, and lose. Let's maybe do some defensive
work, and quit getting so excited about scoring tons of points. You're
losing those games.
There is no excuse for shooting 50% from the line. Collinsworth will be a good
player if he can learn to make free throws. So far haven't seen much
improvement. Mika too.
Gunners are a dime a dozen, nowadays. But shot-blockers and thieves are a hot
commodity for winning games. Start shopping BYU. Defend, defend, defend.
I am amazed that a team like Portland and many other WCC teams have trouble
filling tiny stadiums yet seem to be able to recruit players who can match up
BYU by 12 in regulation at Gonzaga.
The Zags are going to bury the Cougs, sad but true
For BYU to have any chance of winning, it will need a point guard who has more
assists than turnovers and can shoot free throws. If Winder and Bartley are on
the bench, this will get ugly early.
The WCC scheduling does seem a bit odd. I hope they can work harder to not have
so many stretches of continuous road or home games. There's no way to have
predicted such a crazy long game last night so that's just bad luck. Hope
the players can get their legs back by Sat. night. Certainly a tough situation.
How does the WCC expect us to win road games when they schedule them when we are
