This will be a tough game for the Cougs. In most games this year, our front
court will be better than the opposition. Against Baylor, our front court is at
a decided disadvantage.This is a game where we could really use C.
Collinsworth as an extra big man, to allow us to play more physical on the
defensive side.This is a game where we need Davies to stay out of
foul trouble, but still play tough defense against Jones who is very good.
Brandon needs to be on the floor at least 25 minutes, and hopefully closer to
30.This is a game where we need Austin to play as good as he's been
playing, and even a little better.Does anybody know if Sharp will
return for this game? Although undersized against Baylor, we will need him.This is a game where we could really use S. Rogers to allow us to spread
the floor on the offensive side. Other than Abouo, Rogers has been our only
consistent "behind the arc" shooter.This is a game where
we need Carlino to make a strong debut. Tough challenge for a Freshman in his
After reading the article and CougFaninTX's take on things, I'm starting to
think what we really need is to have a sixth man on the court. BYU
has two advantages that might give them a shot: the Marriott Center and being
unranked. Hopefully Baylor will underestimate us.
I think Austin could be big in this game with his outside shooting ablility,
taking Perry Jones out of the paint could be huge for us.I hope
Davies, Hartsock and Abuo have enough sense to not try forcing anything inside,
these guys defensively are monsters in the block. The way to win this game is
with great passing and teamwork, waiting for the open shot.
This will be a tough game but I think the Cougs could do it. Our biggest
advantage is that the MC is one of the toughest places for a visiting team to
win at. With out Rodgers Harrison will be taking his spot and he will need to
step up. I am anxious to see the debut of Matt Carlino. I hope he is as good as
advertised. Rise UP!!
I agree this will be a tough task, but pits also tough to get a road win at the
Marriot center. Byu will have to play very well. Baylor hasn't really been
BYU is playing great right now! The second half will sure be interesting as I'm
sure Baylor makes necessary changes.
Sorry to see a 13 point lead brought down to 4 points at the half. Cougars are
looking good though.Hard to defend against those 3 pointers if they
all go in like they did early in the half. Zone defense is doing pretty good
though.Go Cougars, get 'r done!
Cougs up at half, nice job!! Keep it up. I smell upset!
