    Carlino was highly impressive, with two quick assists when he entered the game. I was impressed with his ability not to be bothered by missing his first two shots and then finding the hoop with confidence for the rest of the game. I also loved his competitive fire. You could easily tell that he wasn't satisfied with making a great personal debut; he wanted the win. I am very excited to see him play over the next four seasons.

    Carlino is a freshman and played in his first real game in over a year. Although his passing and defense were a little suspect, I think he looked very good. BYU is going to have a great team for several years.
    Jabari Parker could do a lot worse than to come to BYU.

    I was most impressed with with Carlino's passing. He made a couple of passes that were amazing. He looks like a true point guard that can score. I am looking forward to seeing him develop along with Harrison, Austin, and the others.

    It is impressive to me to see the coaching job that Coach Rose is doing. He is having to manage his players each week.

    I think the Cougars will be all right.

    I was impressed with Carlino, but I was also impressed with Harrison. He has come a long way since the season began. The first couple of games he had some rough spots where it appeared the game was moving faster than he expected. If he gets his foul shooting under control, he could turn into a pretty good player - but then even Jimmer was only 50% at the line against the Warriors.

    Carlino was definately impressive. It's hard to believe it was his first collegiate game. He looked like a veteran. As his chemistry improves with the other players, this team will continue to get better. And Cusick is a solid back-up.
