    Yes hedgie; it was a preseason, exhibition game. Utah might have even been able to beat Laval.

    Can always rely on a troll to find something negative to say, even in a complete domination blow-out.

    As to Canada playing basketball; you might want to refer that question to Steve Nash.

    I did Google Laval University Basketball and they are a decent team up north, usually 1st or 2nd in their division. Doesn't speak much for Canadian basketball since we crushed them last year and this year. I would guess that the better Canadian players get scholarships to US universities (as Nash did).

    I hope that helps answer your sincere questions and interest in all things related to BYU basketball, Mr. Ute.

    Attended the game.

    Obvious first half jitters by the newer players.

    Second half was much better shooting and all round play. Nervousness seemed to be gone.

    Clearly a better team than we had last year. I am still concerned that we are undersized up front and will struggle against the teams with the bigs unless we can run them off the floor. (Which we are capable of.)

    We appear deeper than last year with good talent displayed by the new guys. I saw definite improvement from most of the new guys from last year's squad.

    Fredette and Emery looked fantastic. Made 11 of 12 shots, moved the ball well, played tight D.

    We were concerned that some of the guys that struggled at the line last year continued to do so again last night. However, the guys that will be getting most of the game time and most of the free throws played very limited minutes so our percentage will be much higher than this game showed.

    All in all, a fun game to watch. These pre-season games let you get to know the new guys better.

    Unlike other uni's, BYU beat's the versions of South Baptist St with ease. It's going to be a great season with excellent talent.
