    Congrats seniors on a fantastic season and a great run for the last 4-6 years!

    Having non-bigs who rebounded is one way the Phoenix Suns had so much success for the past 6 titles, but deep playoff runs and some fantastic basketball. I can see this Cougar team running a parallel course this year, and since we are not Kentucky, NC or Duke, that is a big accomplishment if they can pull it off. Without Davies a Sweet 16 would be about what we can hope for an be proud of, anything past that is now icing...for fans at least. I think the team still has loftier goals. Go get 'em.

    4 out of 5 MWC championsips and they were 2 points away from winning 5 of 5. New Mexico may have BYU's number lately but they dont have anything like this history to be proud of.

    As for todays game, the defense was very troubling. However, BYU will need time to adjust to a little different style of attack as well as some role changes for some players. I hope they do well. Hartsock needs to get back on track and Obuo (sp) needs more games like today. He has the ability to drive but he misses so many layup type shots that it is frustrating. Collinsworth needs to hit the open shot or drive the ball and get fouled.

    I am afraind that BYU will not win the MWC tournament. Hopefully, they will win at least one NCAA game and be competitive in the 2nd. That is about all people can expect.

    Your perdictions are always wrong. Againg you will be wrong. The COUGARS will take care of business at the MWC tourney and get a number one or number two sesd. Jimmer wins POY and Rose is Coy.

    Great atmosphere inside the MC. Student section was loud and entertaining. Great tribute to former Coach Watts. A a student I loved Coach Watts and his brand of exciting basketball. Current teams are as fun to watch. Cosic and Joe Richey would have felt right at home under Coach Rose. Thanks for rebounding from Wednesday's poor showing.

    Kyle played better with his slashing style along with a rejuvenated Charles. Great job guys. Jimmer played well except for a lull after Jackson got his 2nd foul. Once Jackson got back into the game Jimmer lit it up.

    Bring on the Lobos. They will go down in the MWC Tourney along with everyone else. GO Cougars.

    64 points vs. New Mexico.
    64 points vs. Wyoming (in the second half!)

    We're going to be all right.
