    "Seems like a great kid but a definite miss by byu coaching. 1 pt 1 rebound per game. I was surprised it was that high. Not athletic enough for this level."

    Luke has a big strong body. He is playing behind one of the great freshman big men in the country. Give Luke some experience and he could very well surprise you. Anson Winder had miserable numbers before he started. He is now one of the leading scorers on the team.

    Please remember these kids are people. If you wouldn't say it to their face, don't say it at all.

    I like the "Thumper Rule". If you can't say somethin nice, don't say nothin at all.

    Luke started out very poorly but has shown real improvement in his roles. What are his roles? 1) keep things light - he's the funniest guy on the team
    2) help control Mika's temper by getting in his face; they are roommates and Mika listens to and likes Luke. Luke jumped on Mika after the choke sign at St. Mary's
    3) refuse to get pushed around in the paint; softens up the beachheads for Mika and Austin. He's pretty tough for a nice kid.

    Worthington will never be a star, but does his job and will get better.

    Seems a bit harsh. Is he a dominant player? no. He is a freshman who averages 8 mins a game. what kind of numbers are you expecting from him? I definitely wouldn't call it a miss by the coaching staff. he has a small role on the team right now which will continue to grow for the next 3 years. He's not NBA bound but he can be a good backup for us. Give the kid a break.

    They need to go to Buck Bradleys and get a grilled bacon and cheese. Then they can go across the street and get sausage and 10 year old cheddar at Usingers. All a block from the Bradley Center
