    What’s more fair than writing articles in which the most fans are interested?

    I would love a fair point of view. If that were to happen there would be a lot more Lillard articles and a lot less Jimmer articles.

    Mitchell, you might want to know the facts and be a bit more on the fair side with comments. The best player was not on the bench for Weber. He poured in about 29 for the game. Great player. Would love to have a driver and slasher like that play for the Y. And you neglected to mention that one of the Y's best player was unable to play. It's fine to root for your team (or against the Y, if that's your choice), but even with a biased point of view it's also good to be fair.

    I'm a BYU guy, but without a true center I don't look for the Y to win Saturday in Provo. I hope I'm wrong with that conclusion.

    Go Cougs!

    Good game BYU, you barely beat Weber with it's 2 best players on the bench hurt. Would have liked to see who wins with both of them playing.

    Weber State played their best game of the season, but it still wasn't enough to beat BYU.

    Haws was ice down the stretch and provided the winning margin at the line. Referees were awful but Cougs fought thru it. Great team effort.

    DEW: Dastrup was at the game. My guess why he didn't play is that BYU put Seljas in at 4 to stretch the bigs out so Child's wouldn't be double teamed as much and open up the inside game. Also Seljas has been cold from 3 lately and maybe got more time to work his way out of his slump before Utah game. Just my thoughts no inside info.

    If you weren't just being sarcastic, Worthington is averaging 14 minutes per game and is scoring 5 ppg and 3 rebounds per game, not exactly eye-popping numbers but he is playing pretty good defense. I would like to see more of Dastrup.

    Dastrup was the cheerleader on the bench. I was surprised that he didn't get in the game. He plays with energy and will defend and rebound. He'll even shoot if he's open.

    Great way for the Wildcats to fight back to get back into the game. This is why games between local teams are such a great environment. Wish both teams success!

    This game demonstrates why Chris Hill is still too scared to play Weber State, but at least the Running Utes finally played Utah State. The message is clear from Chris, “local teams that beat the Utes, shouldn’t expect another invitation for 7+ years.” Chris, Way to support other Utah Tax Payer supported athletic programs!

    Now I can cheer for both the Weber State and BYU basketball teams the rest of the year. Good luck!

    @DEW Cougars,

    Dashtrup was on the side line cheering but was not dressed up. Not sure why. He probably would've done better than Worthington but who knows? Just glad they came out on top. Hope they play better on Saturday against the Utes!

    This Cannon kid is a walking sound bite. He should run for Mayor of Provo. He certainly says all the right things at the right time and is sure to include everyone and give everyone their due. Heck--he could probably move back to Ogden and be Mayor of that town too! I'll bet he has a hearty handshake.

    “Not having Dalton hurts us because he’s a versatile defender for us,” Rose said
    What about Payton Dastrup - where was he? I couldn't find any stats sheet for this game but other people asked, did Dastrup played or was he at the game? With out him which it did hurt too! Any one know?

    Tilka: Although Wber State's winning percentage is higher than BYU's -- and seriously is not even a full percentage point statistically significant? -- BYU holds a 32-10 records against the Wildcats and that is statistically significant.

    Deseret News: Thanks for getting the title correct on this article!

    Go BYU Cougars!

    Agree that with as many minutes Worthington had, he had essentially 0 contribution.
    Most of the team has upped their defense except for Seljas who continues to watch his man go right by him.
    Good to see Haws has found his game but BYU’s overall performance against a very depleted WSU was very disappointing. I think Utah will handle the Cougars pretty easily. I hope I’m wrong.

    Question, who has the better all time winning percentage between BYU and Weber State? Answer, Weber State-63.43% vs BYU 62.57%. BYU was really sloppy with the ball tonight. Lets hope that they were looking past Weber State to the Utah game.

    Weber reminds me of other teams in the WCC . Seems like we weren't ready to play. We've got to be ready or we will loose some games we're supposed to win in conference .

    Good to see BYU finish well at the FT line. Good to see Haws scoring again. Great that BYU is playing some defense this year. However, two questions: 1) How does Weber State's Harding score 29 points? Obviously there were problems defending him. 2) Why is a big guy like Worthington only getting 1 rebound and 0 points per game? BYU will have to play better against Utah. This one was too close for comfort.
