The Collinsworths seem like they are really good kids and we miss Chris just as
much as we miss Brandon. Any team missing its two most athletic bigs would seem
to be out of luck, but the Cougars have shown a lot of heart playing without
these two.Hopefully we get them both back next year. Good luck on
your mission Kyle!
It's too early to talk about next year, but where BYU is thin in the front court
this year, consider a starting five that has a healthy Chris Collinsworth,
Brandon Davies and Noah Hartsock at forward/center, Charles Abouo and Anson
Winder/Matt Carlino/DeMarcus Harrison. The team is making the best of a bad
situation in missing both Davies and Collinsworth. As it stands, Jimmer gets
his usual thirty points and if others are shooting well, BYU wins; if not, they
lose. There is virtually no inside presence. That will all change next year.
It was a big blow to lose Chris so early in the season to the ankle sprain and
subsequent knee injury. Kyle seems to be back fully from his concussion.Love the Collinsworths for all their hard work and tenacity! (Good
players to boot:)
The Collinsworth's are great young men and I wish them the best as Kyle heads
for the mission and Chris on rehabbing and getting ready for next year. They
are great young men from a great family and I can't wait to see how the next few
years play out for them in their life's pursuits.
