Is this game being televised? If so apparently Dish Network does not offer ESPN 950 in the Salt Lake City market. I'll check PBS.

Collinsworth may be the 2nd best player in the state right behind Haws. He has more rebounds and more points and more steals than wright had and this is just in the first half. Wright is an average player in an average league. BYU is the real deal and are peaking at the right time.

Byu was up like 15 and now down to 7 point lead against mighty Lola Mary community? Announcers said Lmu is so decimated with injuries they only have 7 players essentially.

If byu loses this game they will be the least likely team in the entire state to go dancing.

Go Lmu!

Officiating really one-sided in favor of LMU second half.

When will you ever learn that your support of a team is the kiss of death? Thanks for your support for the best team in te state that just won today. Collingsworth just doubled up wright in points and rebounds. The best two players in the state are both on BYU. Sorry crissy. U lose again.

Chris B....BYU TV thanks you for being part of the world-wide audience that enjoys watching BYU sporting events in live HD. Hope you enjoyed the game today. Go Cougars!

Anson Winder made a huge difference in this game with his defense especially! Fun game to watch and have to give credit to LMU, then battled very hard.

Gonzaga would win the PAC 12 if in that conference.

Makes the WCC the superior conference.

@downunder and worf - your comments have gotten just as crazy as Chris B. Too bad the DN doesn't have a policy to prohibit comments that have no basis in reality, would make the comments a lot more interesting to see actual fans make logical comments about the actual article.

As for this game, the Y did their job and moved on. This win doesn't help them but a loss would have done a lot of damage. Similar story for their next game. Want to argue my comment, fine; but drop the red vs. blue dialogue.

Even with byu win this game they will be the least likely team in the entire state to go dancing.

The mighty Utes will go dancing because they are impressed with our close rode games in a pretegous conference and because we are moving onward and upward even when we lose.

Go Utes!

Anyone notice how utah chalked up another "L" today?? But I digress once again.

That is right - the best two players in Utah are both at BYU. No need to print their names because everyone knows who I am referring to.

COute,
Then I have made my point. As long as cb is way out there I will return the favor.

Winder is hitting his stride at just the right time. Great D and hitting some big shots. Collinsworth as well. Always steady Haws is doing great things. Austin is a machine on the rebounds. Freshman all conference team Mika is leaving his mark.

This is going to be a fun ride.

March Madness!

Go Cougars!

Good Luck Cougars with your next opponent USF.

Wasn't it Idaho State, the Big Sky's 10th place team that beat USF on their home floor this year? And wasn't it before USF lost their 2nd best player for the year?

BYU-TV was proclaiming BYU now plays defense, 74 points to LMU? As of now, you might be playing Santa Clara on Monday.

@Down under
Collinsworth may be the 2nd best player in the state right behind Haws.

Yes, and they both will be playing in Europe with Jimmer. So far Jimmer has more DNPs than points in Chicago, so I might not be far off.
