Winder is playing well again with the start. But his 19 points have been pretty
quiet. It's the Matty Ice show! 7-10 from three, 25 points, and what was
that? Carlino throwing one down? Dude is unconscious tonight!
Great win. Carlino and Winder are on fire! Great to see coach Rose making the
right moves. Glad we have him leading this team. Team is having fun, playing
well, tons of assists. Keep it going Cougs!
This team is coming together at just the right time. Hopefully the committee
recognizes this and rewards the team. Even better, keep playing like this and
earn the automatic bid by winning the WCC tourney! Keep it going!
20 wins! And a two-handed dunk by Matty Carlino!! Great night for BYU fans!
This was a really enjoyable game to watch. For the most part, the officials
allowed the two teams to play. And what can you say about Carlino? Just a
great game to watch.Or, at least it was fun until about the last 5
minutes or so. That seems to be when the officials decided they needed to even
up the fouls. When I saw at half time that BYU had been whistled for just 3
fouls compared to Portland's 10, I said to my wife, "watch,
they'll call a bunch of ticky-tack stuff and even that up in the 2nd."
Well, much to my surprise, they didn't. Until the last bit of the game,
that is. It's pretty amazing when a guy can get called for a foul for
nothing more than setting up in position for a rebound. I give the officials an
a for the first 12-15 minutes. They get a D for the last 5-8.
One more to go, finish strong cougars
I enjoyed watching the Matty Basketball show and am thrilled that the cougs are
peaking right now. I think they definitely having a shot of running the tables,
winning the conference tournament, and getting a decent (i.e. 7-8) seed in the
big dance. Go Cougs!
Great game for Matty and the rest of the team.Congratulations to
Dave Rose on his 9th straight 20+ win season!
This team is starting to peak!
Seems like the Cougars are starting to peak at the right time. Good week for
BYU has one of the best guard line in the country and without a doubt two or
three of the best guards inthe state. They are coming together at the right
time of the season. First team in the state to get to 20 wins. If they
continue playing as they are right now they may catch a few teams by surprise in
the NCAA tourney.Coach Rose is a genious the way he is rotating his
players in ans out of the game. Kuso also to Worthington for logging some solid
Carlino actually hit 8 threes but that just makes it even more amazing. Love
Winder as a starter!
I think I'd better wear my "Y" tie to church today!!!
Awesome game by the Cougars, especially Carlino and Winder! Things are gelling
at just the right time for this team. Hope they continue. With Gonzaga
suffering their second consecutive loss last night against San Diego, these
cougs may well end up being conference champs! Who knows? It's so fun to
watch them when they play well! Go Cougars! Good luck to the Utes
today too! And so sorry to see the Aggies lost another tough one again!
That's it the team chemistry is peaking. They are having fun! Their
confidence is soaring. And it is absolutely fun to watch. Now call Eddie
FIRE! --- Carlino's on fire!Hands down these starting line-up
changes have made a huge difference.And Winder is a beast!
Carlino had a Jimmer-like performance. Good win Cougs! Only one loss at home all
season. If they could beat San Diego on Saturday and win enough in the
Conference tournament to get to the championship game against Gonzaga than I
think their at-large chances will be enough to get in pending on how the rest of
the field goes.
Thank goodness for the Marriott Center. The cougs probably would have lost on
Another great win for the cougs over another power house in the wcc. Let's
call the win what it really was. Two less than average teams from the 9th best
conference. Boy byu fans expectations sure have fallen to an all time low if you
think beating Portland was a good win. Especially when both programs are
irrelevant in the landscape of college basketball.It really shows
the direction Utah and byu basketball are headed.byu fans claiming Portland a
great when and Utah fans in a rebuilding year are disappointed in close loses to
Arizona and on the road.
At wisconsincougarfanI told you Gonzaga was an average team,
especially by there standards. They drove that point home again last night. One
win in the tournament, at best, then out.Nice win for BYU last
night, I wouldn't be surprised if they win the WCC tourney. Good for BYU!
ed in atlIt's Palubinskas. Eddie played at Ricks years ago before
finishing at LSU. BYU coaches need to call him and let him teach
"technique" on free throw shooting to some of our guys.Good to see
Matty with that throw down! Like he said, it's hard to guard FIVE GUYS!
Bleedcrimson"The Cougs probably would have lost on the
road."LOL! There's no team in the state that's more
pathetic on the road than the Utes.Road/neutral wins:BYU: #24 Texas, #41 Stanford, #63 Saint Mary's, #78 San Francisco, #133
Utah St, #220 Santa ClaraUtah: #155 Washington StWorst
road/neutral loss:BYU: #177 Loyola MarymountUtah: #182
Bleed Crimson,You must be mistaken about losing on the road. I believe
that you were soeaking of the utes.The Cougars do fine on the road Remind
me again about the utes road record?
Wow. So BYU Cougars can:1. Defend!!!2. Rebound3. Prepare
for the team they are playing at the time4. Not foul every time down the
court.5. Still not shoot free throws!!! (as a team)6. Mika shoot
above 50% free throws!I'm impressed with this win--maybe, just maybe
there is hope for a win in the WCC playoffs.
The cougs probably would of lost on the road but our awsome road record proves
we always win our teams so we our good.Go Utes!
And Baby R,Utah still cannot:Win more than one road game a seasonMake it to any tourneyPack their own gymmake it to 20 wins win any close gameout recruit BYUI'm impressed with this
team, maybe, just maybe there is a hope for a win the pac. Oh never mind iti is
on the road
@ Crow"Another great win for the cougs over another power house
in the wcc."Really??? Wow, what weird expectations. Any win is a
good win no matter who it's against. But a great win?? You give Portland
more credit than I do.
Coach Rose deserves a lot of praise. He has great instincts regarding the
rotation that will spur players to excel. We are very fortunate to have such a
classy coach! Great job Dave!
Great coaching effort to figure out the best line up. I wish Carlino would pass
the ball more. But I guess he was in the zone.@Bleed Crimson
"Thank goodness for the Marriott Center. The cougs probably would have lost
on the road."That's a pretty brazen statement coming from a
fan of a team that has been perpetual road kill for the last decade. Thank
goodness for the Huntsman Center. Otherwise the only T shirts U could buy this
season is "We beat USC" as your road mantra.
