    Carlino reminds me of Jonathon Tavernari in terms of his all-or-nothing style of play.

    As I recall, Tavernari started for most of his career before he offered to come off the bench as the sixth-man his senior year. He'd hit six three pointers in a row then miss 10.

    Though I enjoyed watching both players, I'd rather have a player who scores 13 every night instead of 22 on Thursday and 4 on Saturday.

    This far into his career, I think this is who Matt Carlino is. It's Skyler Halford who has surprised me.

    Jax Emery on KSL Radio, cool and I wonder how many 12 year old and younger Cougars fans showed up at the game? Anyway, nice to see Carlino playing well and Halford doing the damage at free throw sure help.

    I have really felt all along that Coach Rose would "right the ship". 5 guys in double figures is so much better than Haws carrying most of the scoring load. The other team has to play each player honest. Collinsworth is a beast. I'm so glad he plays for us.

    Carlino played a great game last night!

    The lack of assists was atypical for the Cougs. It was just one of those games.

    Looking forward to Carlino performing up to his potential this weekend.

    Go Cougars!

    Matt Carlino is the "wild card" for this team. When he's hot; he's hot. When he falls apart, things go south. Ball control with him seems to be a key. When he shares the ball, things go well. His success at the foul line at the end of the game was huge. Unselfish plays and assists and consistency are what Carlino needs to work on. Thankfully, Rose pulls him out when he is otherwise!

    I love Skyler Halford's energy and precision in shooting. He's been a real spark plug. The whole team stepped forward to help out, not just depending on Tyler Haws. Eric Mika...we need you. Stop slamming your body into the floor!

    Go Cougars!
