BYU has always had a tough time playing St Marys. Looks like they are a tougher
team this year than in years past. Appears they are a very balanced team with
players who can score and play defense. They win against Stanford was a good win
against a PAC 12 team.
@panamaThis is not the St Mary's of the WCC. This is Mount St
Mary's from Pennsylvania.I am impressed how the Cougars
haven't missed a beat with Haws on the bench. You could make the argument
they even play better as a team when everyone carrying an equal load of the
scoring.Also impressed with Bartley.
Mount St. Mary's is in Maryland.
Also very impressed with how well Mikka runs the floor. I don't think I
have seen a BYU team with so many dunks in one game.I like Carlino,
but he still needs to learn to take what is given to him. I think he presses too
much when they're not dropping for him. It's like he is bent on
getting his points. He is a terrific rebounder and most of the time his passing
is brilliant. I think his stock would rise if he had a little more John Stockton
in him and a little less Kobe Bryant.
The Cougs continue to look much better and deeper than I expected.
Tomorrow's game should be another "walk in the park". But I
can't wait to see how they do against Iowa St and the finals of the HoF
Classic.Mika continues to impress. He's the best freshman
we've had in decades. Winder, Bartley and Halford looked great tonight.
Carlino did a lot of things well, but his shot tonight looked too much like last
year.Overall, a great tune-up for the Cougs in what promises to be a
Cougar basketball will dominate the state of Utah for a minimum of 6 more years.
mark it down.
What a great time to be a BYU fan! This team is on a roll. Back to back 100
point games with probably another coming tomorrow night. This is going to be a
special team. Great chemistry and great depth. Coach Rose and the staff are
doing a great job building a great program. The Cougars are going to be good
for many years to come.Go Cougars!
The only real concern from this game was the poor free throw shooting. That
really needs to improve.I'm trying not to get too optimistic
too soon, but this team really does look to have a lot of depth. Halford,
Bartley, Winder...very impressive performances from those guys tonight. Austin
seems to have improved his game. Collinsworth looks great. Mika is much more
than can be expected from a Freshman. This team could be very special. Still a
long way to go, however.
CougFaninTX-- Yes, I thought that too about Carlino. It's almost as though
he was on a mission to have the spotlight fall on him in the absence of Haws.
He really plays so much better when not out to prove something. I hope he
learns this lesson and allows the game to come to him. We're all glad
he's on our team and he was impressive at Stanford. Now if he can just
play and quit trying so hard. I like what idablue said about more Stockton less
Kobe. Perhaps someone needs to get that message to him along with some old
Stockton video. I'm certainly excited about this season.
Looking forward to hearing more about how serious the injury is. Hope it
.603 from the field. .600 from the free throw line. Real, boys?! If there is
anything to complain about with this team, those two numbers emphasize it.
The three highest scorers were impressive and I'm glad they brought great
effort to the floor. The next three were expected to be the high scorers.
Carlino should have been the high scorer, but when he plays as though he has to
do it all, he plays his worst game. He loses his composure and control, and as
a result he shows little effectiveness. He has teammates out there, but he
doesn't focus on them. We saw this so often last year. He can be most
effective at his own game as he works to make others better. Good luck Cougars.
It's so fun to watch a team with so much depth. I'm excited for this
year and next.
Sorry, Mount St Marys is in Maryland, not the same St Marys that is in the WCC.
Carlino seems to struggle with his shooting when it appears he thinks he has
something to prove. Issue last night, proving he can carry the team if Haws is
out. Don't worry about that, just play your game and let it come to you.
If you think you have to score to prove you can or that you have to score a lot
for the team to win, you will press your game and get tight.
Nice win but I fell asleep right about 12:00 at first half. Anyway, it was nice
to see Mika and other young guys getting their minutes to practice on this real
game. How about this, I don't fall asleep if those young FOOTBALL players
show their stuff including this young Olson qb play against Idaho State today?
We would like to see who are our future players going to be to replace KVN, C.
Hoffman and S. Hadley. Well, I might be in bed before Mesa team tonight. Lol!
Like all the rest of the posters I'm encouraged and excited about this
team. That said I agree with others that the free throw shooting has got to
improve when we play tougher opponents. What hasn't been mentioned, and it
think may be more important than the free throw shooting is the defensive
rebounding. BYU still gives too many second and third chances to teams by not
rebounding well. This was a problem last year, and needs to improve this year if
this team is to go as far as we hope. The great teams hold their opponents to
one and done shots because they clean up the defensive boards. GO
I've never seen a BYU team as balanced as they appear to be so far this
year. Rose is bringing back Phi Slamma Jamma. And the new rules will help a lot.
I really loved Bartley. Wow, he's gonna be great. Mica? I can't
believe he's a freshman. Serious hops and very quick. Collinsworth and Haws
will be great together. Winder and Carlino? Lookin' good. Carlino got a
little out of sorts last night but will be fine. I loved the 4-guard lineup ...
and the speed! These guys can hoop!Opponents won't be able to
clog the middle like last year. The Bigs will have a lot more fun.I'm hooked!Thank you BYUtv. Thank you DirectTV. I'm set
to record every game!
Tom in CAVallejo, CACougar basketball will dominate the state of
Utah for a minimum of 6 more years. mark it down.This attitude is
why so many, even among active Mormons dislike BYU. If you want to be
respected, start by showing some respect.
cval? I am not sure what you are even trying to say. What do you want the
posters here to say? These BYU fans are cheering for their team. I am not sure
what you are doing. Do we want posters to come on and say things like "BYU
is only mediocre. But, have you seen some of the other Utah teams? How bout dem
Jazz. Oh and SUU, they have a team don't they?...." They are cheering
for their team, and made no mention of any other team. Please avoid vociferous
