They will not go far without the rest of the team picking up slack when Jimmer
gets tired. Need you guys bad down the stretch Rogers, Emery and the crew bring
Jimmer, I love you, really I do, but playing defense is not your forte :) Keep
your guy in front of you the best you can and shoot the lights out, that's what
we need from you during this tourament!
GO GO COUGARS!!

About Jimmer's defence, the worst thing for BYU is if Jimmer gets in foul
trouble and has to come out of the game due to over aggressive defence. He and
Rose know exactly what Jimmer needs to do on defence.
Does Jimmer ever get tired? I haven't seen it. You have to play hard on both
ends of the floor to get tired.
Let me share a thought. For those of you who think you have played basketball, I
wonder at the comments. We all know Jackson plays with great energy and
intensity on the defensive side of the ball. He knows how to play defense. He
knows the angles, the schemes, when to put pressure, when to intercept the
pass. He is a very good shut down player. Jimmer is the same on the offensive
side of the ball. His intensity and drive is so good that he feels the game. He
feels the heartbeat. He understands the slightest disruption on the defensive
player and is off with the shot or gone. A player with his abilities and court
sense comes along once a generation. He can instantly analyze defensive pressure
and defeat it. Coach Rose has utilized both of those talents to the best of
their abilities to help win games. Jimmer's job isn't necessarily defense. He
has made some good defensive plays but his job is on the offensive end. Every
player on a successful team has to play their part to the best of their
azdave; Better than none and done don't you think?I am predicting 2 or 3
wins. Losing in round of 16 or 8. Hoping for more though.BYU can
beat nearly anyone if they are close to their season averages in all areas. They
have also proven that they can beat some teams while playing below their normal
