    "Old man.
    One of the byu players said they could beat anyone in the country after win.
    We'll see wont we?"

    Assuming you have me in mind Chris, the accuracy of "her" comment is not in question. She said "could" not "will." I know it takes some effort to make a distinction, but you oughta give it a try.

    As I recall both you and Coach k were predicting that U men would win the PAC-12 tourney, and we won't have to wait and see how that turned out...will we?

    Oh Chris B! That maybe just a young player (you didn't even say who it was) saying something in the spur of the moment that didn't mean anything! Must you always look for the negative instead of showing some love for a change and support a team who's now the only representative from the State of Utah? Please join all these Utah fans who are now showing their support! Or is that too much to ask? Aren't you proud that the Lady Utes beat this team earlier in the season?

    I don't expect them to win against UCONN but I also don't think they'll roll over and play dead!

    Go Lady Cougars!

    Congrats ladies. So proud of how tough and resilient these gals have been. Great job coach Judkins! Clean it up a little and you can beat that would be epic.

    Regardless of what happens in the tournament from here on out, these two wins point up the genius of Jen Hamson's decision to red-shirt in volleyball this year and concentrate on basketball. Hopefully, she'll come back next fall and lead the BYU volleyball team on a similar run.

    "UConn will steamroll byu by 30-40"

    Uhhh, Christopher, U CONN steamrolls everybody by 30-40.

    Ball handling is a problem and forcing a many times did Lexie Eaton dribble into turnovers?

    I don't understand why Christopher B. would continue to antagonize BYU. This is a great win for a class coach and his team. Good luck BYU ladies. Everyone knows UConn is a force to be reckoned with, but what a great opportunity to play against the best. And yes, I'm a Ute fan.

    I think Dave Rose is a great guy, and a pretty good coach. But when I see Jeff Judkins' women's teams overcoming their seeding to beat not one but two higher-seeded opponents in the tournament--and this isn't the first time his teams have made a tourney run from a lower seed--I find myself wondering "what if?". Note to Tom Holmoe: if Coach Rose chooses to retire for whatever reason, I think we have the next men's coach already in BYU's employ.

    I think we finally found some REAL men to play basketball for BYU...

    We can always hope UConn's first string players all get academically disqualified in the next 2 days. Or a 1980 Holiday Bowl type miracle.

    Nice run. Congrats! And yes, pray that UConn loses tonight. Yikes!

    BYU has a fine women's basketball program. Congratulations to the coaches and the young ladies. What a shame that the crowds they play in front of in Provo are so small. Go Cougars!

    Great win! The state of Utah is still on the NCAA tournament map.

    Sorry I forgot about Morgan! She was beautiful to watch too and played superbly the last couple of games! Her contributions to the team is priceless! Hope they keep it up and go as far as they can. But anything more from here on is icing on the cake for them. They've achieved far beyond than what I imagined after their disappointing loss to the Lady Utes during the regular season!

    Go Lady Cougars!

    Amazing win! Xojian was money off the bench just when Beaston's shots weren't falling and Hamson out with foul trouble. Lexi and Maeda were worth their weight in gold! Overall, the girls and their coaches executed their game plan quite nicely, except during those few minutes towards the end when they almost had an epic collapse!

    Rooting hard for them to advance further even though it will be a monumental task if it's against UConn. I'm hoping for a miracle on the next round, be it against St. John or the Huskies!

    Go Lady Cougars!

    How does a women's basketball team play "man on man" defense?

    Congrats to the one BYU team this time of year that has come to play!!

    Let's enjoy the moment as long as we can, because all UConn has to do to win is get off the bus. OK, I'll modify that. All they need to do is apply full court pressure the first ten minutes of the game.

    I had to attend a B-day party tonight and I watched the game on DVR right to the 3.9 second mark on the clock when Jen was fouled. The recorder ended right there. They must have put time back on the clock for the free throws.

    Super game and the Lady Cougs are so fun to watch. Bailey is my choice for MVP with Harry a very close second. Great game!

    Hello Sweet Sixteen.

    Cut down on the turnovers and you can make it to the elite 8 and even further!
