This might not be unique to BYU, but it is enjoyable to watch these guys grow
up, get confidence and really improve as they continue through their schooling
and missions, and then schooling again. It makes the game more than just
I agree that Pacific was not the powerhouse in the paint but let's all
remember that Mika is a true freshman and Pacific started 5 seniors last night.
I'd say he did quite well in his first season of college basketball and
coming off an injury.He will be a beast in a few years. With NO
seniors on the team this year 2015 could be a special year for the Cougs.
It's easy to look good against a week opponent. I hope the bad times are
behind us, but I am doubtful that we will see this performance maintained.
Eric hasn't looked the same, since his hip injury, until last night. I
thought this was his best game of the season. He was solid on both sides of the
court. He is going to be a real force in his Junior and Senior years. I'm
really looking forward to watching Eric and Payton Dastrup play together in a
couple of years.
Pacific doesn't have any "big, physical guys."Not compared to
the successful WCC teams.
By the end of the season Mika will be a force in the middle and is already one
of the top freshman in the country. I feel good about the rest of the season
especially after watching St. Mary's lose at San Diego tonight. They are
not the same team without Delavadova.
