"I don't like to complain about the refs, but this is ridiculous. Saint Mary's is getting away with murder."

No, they're not. The Gaels are just out-playing BYU right now.

Please someone explain how Waldo can but all the way into the key and if BYU touches him its a foul

Nice win against some pretty bad officiating in the first half. Thank goodness the refs backed off and did not target Mica the 2nd half. They played some of the bet defense I have seen all year long in the 2nd half. With this win ESPN has BYU in the tourney. Keep it up Cougs

It's probably too little too late, but a great effort by the cougs tonight. Glad to see them pull out the victory.

Nice win fellas! I didn't think they'd win after that first half.

The Cougars got the "W" in spite of the ref's best effort to give the game to Saint Mary's. Good job Cougars!!

Both teams showed their true character tonight. BYU overcame adversity and rose up in the second half and utah fell flat on their face.
How many more times can CB be wrong in one season?

Hi Chris,

Pacific Community College beat USU in Logan this year. When was the last time the Utes did that? Anyway, this was a great win for BYU. More specific, a great road win.


Only saw the second half, but what I saw was impressive. Congrats to the Cougs on a gut check win.

Tough day for my Utes.

Great comeback win for the Cougars! Played a tough, energetic second half. Fortunately, the usual poor free throw shooting didn't cost the game. A great confidence boost going into the Gonzaga game.


Looks like someone got caught with their foot in their mouth :)

BYU won by playing the least lousy. But you really have to admire the grit and determination of BYU to climb out of the hole when everything was going against them.

The officiating and their protection of Waldow and utter disdain for Mika was just embarrassing.
I think all but one of the fouls called on him were phantom. And most of the calls on the other bigs involving Waldow were equally ridiculous.

Glad to see Collinsworth is oK. I think we all collectively held our breath on that one.

Great win for the Cougs! For the time being, ESPN has them back in the tourney.
