Third meeting in less than a year carries a lot of implications
I like playing Gonzaga. I think they're a good matchup for us. We need DAvies
and Austin to stay out of foul trouble and for Charles to have a really good
game both offensively and defensively. Gonzaga looked really good in beating St
Mary's a week or so ago and will be very tough to beat at home.We'll
also need a good game from Zylstra. I was encouraged (even though it was only
Santa Clara) to see Zylstra play aggressively. Problem is, the bigger the game,
the more likely he is to lose his confidence and disappear. I hope he can rise
above it and step up in this game. We'll need contributions from everyone.Last essential item is for Carlino not to do too much pointless
dribbling. He needs to move the ball ahead and get others into the flow
offensively. We'll have to play our best game but we can win this one if
A 102-7 record in the Kennel? Wow! This is going to be a tough game. Good
luck Cougars! You're going to need it. You can do it.
Honor codeSorry you have nobody to sit by at the runnin ute games this
year. But maybe that new 25 yr. old OC on the hill will bring some gutsyness
this fall that you can "cheer" about.anyhoo, This will be
a very tough test for the Cougs especially with the injuries. But this is what
makes college hoops so fun to watch. Games actually mean something and not just
what supposed power conference you belong too and think your entitled when
losing to a 2 win team. Even if the Y loses, they still aren't completely shut
out of the big dance. Go Cougs and Dukies!!!!
Nooooo. Not Musburger, he's the worst in the business at calling a game.
Wow, Honor Code really surprised me with his revelation above. And all this
time I thought he was a BYU fan. It's hard to believe he won't be cheering for
the Cougs.This team has exceeded my expectations this year. I knew
Hartsock and Davies would be dominant. I was a little worried about Davies
during the first few games. But since WCC play has started, both have been
better than advertised.I knew the backcourt was young and
inexperienced, and would improve as the season progressed. Carlino's 30 point
game last week shows how much improvement there has been. Carlino's last game
against the Zags was the reason we beat them.The game tonight should
be as good as advertised. I'm hopeful Hartsock and Carlino will not be slowed
down by their injuries.
Yes, you will Honor Code. You have nothing to live for outside of BYU.
I know who I'll be cheering for tonight!!! Go Zags!
Nice article. "Rational" noted above is importantly very correct:
Depending on the conference tie breakers it seems most likely that BYU and
Gonzaga will play again next Saturday night---9 days from now---in Las Vegas in
the WCC tourney. It seems to me that game may be much more winnable and every
bit as important. I suspect key player Hartsock could be much more ready to go
9 days from now than he will be tonight. It may be wisest to nurse the knee
tonight and let the other guys give the 'Zags their best shot tonight in the
These two teams would be bracketed to play AGAIN at the conference tournament...
