I watched Toolson play in high school as well . . . and he was a sharpshooter
then. The Tavman will exceed 100 three's before this year is over if they win
the conference tourney and play at least one game at the big dance.Depending on giving the Cougs a 6 or better March Madness seeding, BYU should
go at least to the second round no matter who they play opening night.
Andy Toolson really was a good shooter back in Idaho and he was also a complete
player who did many things well. And by the way, Darren Stuart could also stroke
it from downtown! Those two gunners were a deadly combination from beyond the
arc. They experienced somewhat of a rockstar status in Twin Falls, Idaho when
the 3 point line arrived in the early 80's!! I am still mad I was born a couple
of years too soon to experience the trifecta during the ole high school days!!
With all the shooters nowadays, I am surprised Andy's record held fast so
long--a testament to what a great shooter he was (and probably still is--don't
get in a H-O-R-S-E contest with him)!!
When Andy Toolson was in High School 25 years ago he was just as good then. He
was known as the "Clark Kent" of Idaho. He was fun to watch on the court way
back then as he was at BYU and with the Utah Jazz. Even with all those great
moments he still will be remembered as the "good Guy".
Big BYU fan and enjoy reading about the teams every chance I get. Usually enjoy
Mr. Harmon's articles and enjoyed most of this one. I thought the flesh-eating
microbe reference was in poor taste though. Especially since that particular
infection/disease is currently top of mind because of a recent tragic death.There's got to be better comparisons than that.
