Rebounding leads the way for BYU in blowout of LMU
Congrats to the Cougs for playing a complete game. I've stated a few
times that it's tough for a team to play BYU's uptempo style and have
it translate to winning NCAA Tourney games. That said, if Rose and the gang can
still teach rebounding and lock down defense, postseason victories are certainly
possible. This was only LMU, but I'd be encouraged if I was a Cougar fan.
I still don't see this years team doing too much damage and they may
not even make the tourney, but that was a solid around performance last night.
Chris B. New year's resolution to quit being a Cougat hater??Hope it
lasts. If it does I will quit being a Utes hater.Good to have you on
Carlino found his groove last night, stepping up when LMU tried to shut down
Haws. Matt got a little out of control a few times, but otherwise played a solid
game. Haws was great as usual, especially when LMU was forced to stop doubling
him. Davies is still a little gimpy and didn't have the hops he usually
has, but he still made some nice moves.Funnest plays were
Sharp's in your face dunk and Kafusi's basket. Bronson looks like
he's still in football mode with his stutter stepping in the lane, but
he's obviously got some basketball skills.On to San Francisco
Saturday, but in the meantime, BYU fans should check out the #2-ranked BYU
men's volleyball team playing Hawaii tonight in the Smith Fieldhouse.
Awesome game! Haws' "poor" night tonight would be anyone
else's "great" night. Davies started slowly, but finished strong.
Looks like the team found their third shooter - Matt Carlino, who had a great
game. And Coach Rose listened to the fans chanting, "Bronson! Bronson!
Bronson!" and put him in to get his steal and basket in last 1:39 of the
game.My U-loving days are over. I am now a solid Cougar fan!
