    Most of the country expects BYU to lose Oregon, so it would be a nice boost to the program going forward if the Cougars could pull off the upset. To do that, two or three players besides Haws are going to have to step it up - Carlino, Winder and a wildcard like Austin or Halford?

    Go Cougars!

    Oregon is the 7. BYU is the 10. Oregon is supposed to win.

    I hope for a BYU upset, but I'm not counting on it. If Haws shoots better than he did in the WCC Tournament, that will be a start. However, we'll definitely need contributions from Carlino, Winder, Mika, et al, in order to have a shot at a W.

    And Mr. Austin? You used to have a pretty good shot. When you are open, would you please look to shoot more?

    If the Cougs win, I'll see this season as a success overall, as we are relatively young. I think that a win thursday, and a close defeat Saturday will line us up with huge momentum going into next year, where I expect us to spend lots of time in the Top 25, with a few NCAA wins..

    I love my Cougies but if we beat Oregon, I will be as surprised as I was that the U lost to Saint Mary's. But, as they say, that is why they play the games on the court and not on paper.

    Honestly, not expecting the Cougs to win this one -- especially without Collinsworth. But I'm still traveling to the game to cheer them on, hoping for a W, and enjoy the day with my daughter. Good Luck, Cougars!

    As in many college bb games, this one is hard to call.

    The team that prepares best will win the score; the players that give it their best will win much more!

    Go Cougars, beware of complacency and pride, play the whole game, right to the very end.
