9 assists and 6 1/2 rebounds. I like those stats better than the points from
3's. And he is a master passer in the transition game. When he is dishing
it out well, good things happen. You can bet he won't be underestimated
next game. Haws had his usual productive offensive performance. I still
say if he were more patient, and let the game come to him more he would be even
more productive and valuable to the team. Overall, though, I thought the team
passed the ball really well tonight which resulted in high percentage shots. The game was officiated pretty tight, also, which favors BYU. Is it my
imagination or is the officiating really different outside the WCC?
Congratulations BYU on a great team performance - all of the starters were
impressive. When Matt is playing well, the whole team seems to play well.Good luck in Mississippi on Wednesday!
So very nice to see BYU win and finally play like they could. Too bad that SR
wasn't around this year. That make the big difference third scorer not
lose more than 3 or 4 games go deep into the NCAA tourney player would have been
with them all year. Sometimes just having one more consist player can make the
huge difference. Mark
Beautiful, just beautiful! Wish they played like that the whole season,
especially during the WCC tournament but I'm glad to see them finally
putting it together. It is so fun to watch them now and I hope they'll
continue to roll. Yes, it's not the NCAA but they don't seem to mind
and we sure don't either. They're having so much fun and that's
all that matters. Go Cougars!
This tournament has really been fun to attend. Thanks BYU for only chargin $10
per ticket anywhere in the MC (except courtside). Carlino has the
ability to make the long pass that surprises the defense when it is hauled in
for a layup. Maybe Bronco could use him.
Good article that I agree with. I guess the issue I have with Mr. Harmon is the
timing of his critical analysis: "Carlino’s wandered around this
season as a mystery man for Rose. Some nights he’s on fire. Some nights
he’s been missing in action. He’s played in streaks, putting on
heroic performances and then disappearing." This is a correct statement, but
why don't we read this type of analysis during the season? Looks like
there's a tendency to pile-on after the fact. Regardless, let's hope
Carlino keeps rubbing that rabbit's foot because it's working!
Re the WCC officiating, I agree that they really allow rough play. The NIT refs
were calling fouls and it made for a cleaner game. As for Carlino, he's a
sophomore, as is Haws. We'll miss Davies, but those two guys are only going
to get better.
