And to think if byu hadn't lost to lightweight after lightweight like Pepperdine, Portland community, pacific dental school, byu would be dancing.

Considering dave Rose has exactly ZERO tournament championships byu doesn't stand much of a chance to win the tournament.

Oh yes the mighty Torerors.

They are one of those schools most people don't even know exists. I watch a lot of basketball and I can't remember the last time I heard ESPN talking about the mighty Torerors.

I know usually teams play their rivals the last game.

Are byu and San Diego new rivals? I know byu needs a new rival now that they've moved to the wcc.

Gonzaga and St. Mary's are the premier rivalry in that league, maybe byu and san diego are new rivals?

What do you byu fans think?

Apparently all the BYU TV coverage they are to benefit from by being independent is limited to the football team. Sad I have to follow them on the DN web site as ESPN has abandoned the basketball team.

The Cougs are playing great. With a good second half we secure the #2 seed in the conference tourney. Go Cougs!

47-47 midway through the second half.

San Diego community college may just be too much for byu

They are now down 2

LOL

Go San Diego(no one knows what your mascot is but insert here)

Mission accomplished!

Another good road win for BYU to wrap up 2nd in the WCC.

Just about every bubble team won today. byu still needs to go to the conference title game to go dancing, and even then it wouldn't be a guarantee.

And considering Dave Rose has ZERO conference tournament championships, the NIT is still the most likely for byu.

In fact, I have as many conference tournament championships as Dave Rose.

Ugly second half for sure. Nate is such a stud player. Nails from the stripe down the stretch. Second leading rebounder in WCC. I still think these officials are sub-par. Fang-tooth(SMC) can push all he wants but we are whistled for ticky-tacky contact.

I must agree with my associate above who have alot to say about BYU. So much it like he ate bad burrito and cannot stop his mouth from spewing. BYU needs to schedule more schools like South Winnebego State JV Cheer Squad for home schedule. Then that build resume and we will get more mention on ESPN like U. But wait........when was the last time U got mentioned on ESPN? Was Bill Clinton still in oval office? I think so......

Good job when you needed it. Cougars need some consistancy now. I still feel that they will perform best in the NIT, for they will get some home court games. Cougs still do not win on the road often, and just getting by an S.D. team like this will not take them far in the big dance. The NIT experience last year would play in well this year.

Then when they consistantly win on the road they will be ready for the big dance. One and out is no fun.

Chris B I can think of another team I can't remember ESPN talking about in the last 10 years (You got it, Utah)

Must be a slow day for the Ute fans, er,one fan of some nature. At least the Cougars don't have a three-game losing streak like the Iowa Hawkeyes.

No. 2 seed works for me. Seems BYU is starting to hit its stride at the right time.

Pacific Dental School; good one!

Chris, your comments always put a smile on my face. You try and try to get under BYU fans' skin but every single time you come on here and post 5 of the first 7 posts, BYU ALWAYS comes back and wins the game. It really is hilarious. LOL!

I just want to thank you for being the good luck charm for all of us BYU fans. I'm a little bit saddened because I think you must be sitting at home just hoping for a BYU loss and they keep winning. I want you to be happy. I want you to enjoy sports in Utah. Maybe next year your utes will get to go the big dance. I know it has been a long time for loyal ute fans. Maybe it will happen next year.

At any rate,

Go Cougars!

One of the most exciting games all year! It was anybody's game until Kyle Collinsworth hit the triple very late in the game put BYU up for good!

Chris B: Since the Utes won't have anything else to do in March, can you get them to cheer for BYU in the NCAA tourney?

Great road win Cougs - way to hang in the second half. All the more remarkable that you were able to succeed in the face of the overwhelming contrary hoops wisdom regurgitated during the second half by wimpy trolls. Some people win big games on the road, some people hang out on the comment boards of teams they hate. Some people have lives, some don't.

Great win over a tough SD team, who took down the Zags last week. BYU finishing strong and peaking at the right time, just like they did last year. I really like how Anson is playing, especially on the D side. Looking forward to Las Vegas.
