    The biggest problem I saw was there was no go to player. When BYU started to fall behind there was nobody to step up. While I like everyone contributing to eliminate one player being targeted, there still needs to be one player the team can go to. Maybe that will be fixed when we get a real point guard

    No. 1 reason BYU lost: ineffective play at point guard. Zylstra is doing what the coaches ask, but . . . . can't wait to see this team with Carlino at point guard.

    BYU guards ARE slow and as yet un-proven. No surprise there. Cougars await Matt Carlino, the transfer point guard from UCLA to become eligible. Right now we are one-dimensional(big and fairly strong inside). One-dimensional teams just don't cut the mustard as we saw in Logan. Last year we were one-dimensional(Jimmer Fredette) and it showed down the stretch in the tournament. With Collinsworth(knee) and Davies(honor code) last year we were clearly a final four team.

    BYU tried to intimidate Utah State with their big starting lineup: 6-8,6-8,6-10,6-6,6-5. But that only works if your 6-5 guards are athletic enough to play defense and run. We were the faster team, byu's guards looked slow and undisciplined.
