    I feel bad for Jay, especially since it's his senior year.

    And this is another tough break for a Ute team that's already on the ropes.

    Hate to see a kid get injured and lose out on any of his college time like this. I hope he can recover.

    Tough break for Jay. Back problems for big men in basketball are very common.

    Chris Collinsworth is out for the season for BYU; they'll apply for a medical redshirt, so he may still get to play with Kyle one more year after Kyle completes his mission.

    Good luck to both players.

    I feel for the Utes, losing Watkins indefinitely. It is always tough for a team to adjust to playing without a starter late in the season, let alone doing so for it's second-leading scorer and assist leader. Best of luck moving forward!

    Wish this weren't so. I really like Jay and his style of play.
