    "begs the question" means something different than the way you use it here, Mr. Harmon. Just sayin'! Oh ... and, "Go, Cougs!"

    One and done is not unlikely. Hoping for better.

    The Cougs will lose any tournament game in which they make less than 50% of their three-point attempts. Unfortunately, all WCC teams know to over-defend the perimeter against BYU inasmuch as the latter has almost no mid-range game.

    What does Paddock have to do with any of this?

    Even if Gonzaga jumped conferences to the Mtn. West, BYU would still struggle to win the WCC. They are clearly the third best team in the WCC, but Gonzaga and St. Mary's are on a whole other level which every 3-4 years BYU is capable of being within striking distance. BYU tends to only play well at home, and when the shooting is hot, they are competitive. Look for a first if not second round defeat and a lower NIT seed.

    The Cougs need to give Dastrup some serious time in the tourney if they want to win. The guy is a firecracker on the court. When he has messed up this year it has been like coach Rose has a shock collar on the high spirited super energized young man. It is time to give him some leash and let him unleash the whole Payton to make some noise in Vegas.
    Go Cougs!

    This team is so inconsistent. I wouldn't be surprised see them be one and done. But, they have the talent to make a deep run. It will be interesting.

    If Rose would start Dastrup and keep him in , this could be a very interesting tourney for the Cougs .... But we all know that will not happen for whatever Roses real reason is so it is what it is .....

    If only Bryant and Childs score - they are one and done. Let's go - put some new blood in the lineup - it can't hurt.

    I'm predicting that with nothing to lose, BYU plays loose, their shooting catches fire, and the Cougars make a tournament final run.
