Matt Carlino is the "wild card" for this team. When he's hot;
he's hot. When he falls apart, things go south. Ball control with him seems
to be a key. When he shares the ball, things go well. His success at the foul
line at the end of the game was huge. Unselfish plays and assists and
consistency are what Carlino needs to work on. Thankfully, Rose pulls him out
when he is otherwise!I love Skyler Halford's energy and
precision in shooting. He's been a real spark plug. The whole team stepped
forward to help out, not just depending on Tyler Haws. Eric Mika...we need you.
Stop slamming your body into the floor!Go Cougars!
Carlino played a great game last night! The lack of assists was
atypical for the Cougs. It was just one of those games.Looking
forward to Carlino performing up to his potential this weekend.Go
I have really felt all along that Coach Rose would "right the ship". 5
guys in double figures is so much better than Haws carrying most of the scoring
load. The other team has to play each player honest. Collinsworth is a beast.
I'm so glad he plays for us.
Jax Emery on KSL Radio, cool and I wonder how many 12 year old and younger
Cougars fans showed up at the game? Anyway, nice to see Carlino playing well and
Halford doing the damage at free throw sure help.
Carlino reminds me of Jonathon Tavernari in terms of his all-or-nothing style of
play.As I recall, Tavernari started for most of his career before he
offered to come off the bench as the sixth-man his senior year. He'd hit
six three pointers in a row then miss 10. Though I enjoyed watching
both players, I'd rather have a player who scores 13 every night instead of
22 on Thursday and 4 on Saturday.This far into his career, I think
this is who Matt Carlino is. It's Skyler Halford who has surprised me.
