    Best win? (so far)

    The dominating win over the Utes.

    Keys:

    Poor 3PT shooting
    Poor 3PT defense
    Terrible, uneven officiating

    The coaches and players did their best. Some shots didn’t fall with the good looks they had. They didn’t start out to loose and I don’t know of a team that does . I saw on TV The refs did make some bad calls or no calls. Any team will have ups and downs. Time to move on and get the next one.

    “Just look at the Y's best win of the year and you will see that they really do not have one .....”

    Sure they do....The flukey W over Big Brother @ home way back in December is palpably a Great/Solid W, yet the only 1 they have on the season.

    We’d straight humiliate byu, were we to face them again today, period.

    Go Utes!

    Oh my gosh this was way closer than the score and a few more good ref calls and we win easy.

    I have been a life long supporter of BYU (and Utah, and USU), but lately I have been very disappointed in the poor offensive plays. BYU seems to rely more on their star talent and less on quality offensive plays. Maybe BYU is falling behind the times? Or maybe having two head coaches is muddying the waters? What ever the problem, it starts with the coaching.

    Rose has this team and program on a free fall right now... He has lost this team and has hit a dead end with this program .... It really is time for him to step down or Holmoe fire him ... This program has become down right embarrassing ! Rose has many 4 star players on this team and they can not even beat low tier teams in the wcc ??? Come on BYU and Holmoe pull the trigger as you are better than this !! And pleeeeeeze do not give me the 20 wins a year weak excuse as it has become easy to win 20 games in a year if you do not play anybody .... Just look at the Y's best win of the year and you will see that they really do not have one .....

    Horrible effort or lack of effort. The team looks similar to last years team that really didn’t care any more.

    Our guys just didn't look very good today. Other teams appear to get better as the season goes along and we don't seem to. If anything we seem to get worse over time. At this point I'm kind of hoping we don't even go to the NIT because I'd hate to see us get blown out again in the 1st round of a second-rate tournament.

    The 3 keys are obvious:

    BYU couldn’t defend the 3
    BYU couldn’t hit the 3
    BYU had way too many careless fouls

    One bright spot:

    BYU cleaned up the turnovers resulting from careless passes.

    Watched all the game and loved it. Laughing much of the time about the poor three point tries and the silly fouls committed. Why do TDS players always whine and complain about foul calls? This was actually one of the better refereed games I have seen this year.

    I know the TDS fans will complain about the officiating, but objectively it was pretty well called. Use Childs' last foul on the three point attempt as an example. The radio announced whined and moaned, but it clearly was a foul viewing it on tv. It is the blue tinted glasses getting in the way of reality.
