Mitchell What’s more fair than writing articles in which the
most fans are interested?
@topI 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.
@dpalIf 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.
@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 saidWhat 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
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
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
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
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.
