    Haws says?
    Haws is BYU's weakest link.

    He'll shoot you out of a game just as soon as he will keep you in one.
    Very inconsistent.

    When the over-hyped Lone Peak three move on, then hopefully, BYU can rebuild.

    The BYU Cougars are doing their best on the basketball court. Those who love to hate the Cougars will always find something to negative to say, but they are not playing the games, or making the sacrifice of time and effort to practice and improve.

    Somehow it seems the Cougar players have been all tied up, unable to unleash the talent they have shown in the past. Too often I see a player with an open shot or a path to the basket and he hesitates and passes instead. Go for it, take your shot, but don't hurry it, swish it!

    Nobody cares more than our BYU-obsessed little brothers.

    We dominated you this season.

    Own it.

    byu has precipitously regressed since December....Fortunate for them they don’t have to face us again....We’d straight slaughter them!

    We are, after all, not only their sole good win on the season, but their Daddy!

    Go Utes!

    p.s. 3,004 days now since byu last beat us in the king of sports, Football!

    Don’t know why some fans are whining, Haws is exactly right.

    Hiya - As the censors won't allow my previous comment, I will just ask, are you referring to the SF player who was ejected for a Flagrant 2 foul? Seemed like pretty fair refereeing to me. . . Why do you fans always play the 'refs did it to us' card when it is evident you were playing a better team?

    No matter how hard we play, same old problems playing against those Zebras on other team. It is old and will continue as long we are stuck with wcc!
    Those 3's that we shots were terrible, we need to play more inside but some guys can't make those easy layups anyway.

    Hey Haws... put your money where your mouth is and show a little toughness.

    This coming from the player who leads the team in assists, is tied for 1st in steals, and is 3rd in scoring.

    Yes BYU needs to work on its toughness. But then again, last night was a good exercise. I mean how many times can you allow someone to elbow you across the face before you get the idea that they are going to allow such stuff. But when BYU tries such stuff they foul out. And how many times can you practice getting hammered when you drive to the basket but when the other team does such things no fouls are called. How many times can you practice the other team running into you, but when you try the same thing nothing is called. You can practice until you are blue in the face, but when things are not equal, it doesn't matter how much you practice, the outcome was determined before the game. It's time to re-think, does BYU want to be in such a league?

    I'm with you 1984 for life.... You said it all. softest guy on the team saying we got to improve on our toughness. This is coming from a guy who just stands around on the court most of the time, offensively and defensively.

    My question to Haws would be, when does that improved toughness start? Not much of a season left.
