    i forgot to mention worthington's efforts and the game he played, he looks like he's coming along nicely, he's needed in the middle and i look for him to play even better and have the confidence he has to have. he's good enough to play already. the team will be great next year.

    I am not dissing Utah's performance against Arizona, I thought they played a great game. But I would like to ask Chris if he would rather have a 90% free throw shooter go 0 for 3 at the end of a close game, or a 65% free throw shooter go 10 for 10, many of those at the end of a close game?

    Of course the bench got the best marks. Carlino and Mika are not really bench players.
    If they come off the bench and do not start they are bench players,whether it be 1 game or 21 games the bench is the bench.

    I challenge you to try and make one positive comment about BYU. I'm not sure that it's possible.

    @down under,

    For sure in the NCAA?


    No, byu will have to make it to the conference championship game to be in, and not lose either of the last two.

    And considering big time Portland and San Diego are on the schedule still, byu will lose at least one more game before the conference championship game.

    And be OUT

    Does not matter if they come off the bench or they start the team is loaded with talent top to bottom and clearly the best team in the state followed by Weber, USU, and UVU.

    BYU will end up with 20+ wins this season for sure which will put them in the ncaa. Utah........well?

    @The Rock. I agree that Mika isn't really a bench player. Carlino, though, has come off the bench for most of the season at this point, so he's clearly a bench player. It was a brilliant move by Rose, though. And how about Winder hitting all of his free throws? That's clutch!

    Brilliant coaching decision by Dave Rose starting Winder and Sharp, and bringing Halford and Mika off the bench.

    Winder was the player of the game for BYU with 17 points and helped keep Pangos under control, while Sharp provided early hustle and helped keep Mika from picking up a couple of early fouls.
