I don't think he was shooting. I think he was just getting the ball in the air to run out the rest of the time. I think he was trying to avoid a foul being called that would extend the game.
Rewatching it I can see your point. The ball hit backboard, but he didn't really square up for a shot.

Really great game, I watched it live, from start to finish. It was tough seeing BYU go down 18-2, and I didn't have a lot of faith in this team at that point. Ironically, I thought BYU would win before the game started. BYU just owns a mental edge over Gonzaga. We match up very well against them unlike Saint Mary's who has an offense and team that is BYU's kryptonite.

BYU fought back and never gave up. All the credit in the world to them.

I started watching when we were down 21-8. I didn't realize we started out worse than that until the game was over.

Williams-Goss finally missed a few shots toward the end. He had all the answers for 1.75 games against us this year.

They don't like Mika.
I think there was a moment when he turned to the students and challenged them to read the Book of Mormon. At least that was my effort at lip reading. They didn't take kindly.

Too bad we can't have all of our games against them.

I've been busy with my move to Utah and starting a new job and I didn't have my PC hooked up to Internet for a while (what a crime!) so I hadn't been doing my PER updates. Plus, it was kinda depressing to think about doing it too. But the Gonzaga win has me in high spirits again! Here's how we did:

For comparison's sake, Collinsworth PERs were 20.26, 23.70, and 25.79

George Hill said, "Huge Win Over The Number 1 Team In The Nation For My Boys." He's a BYU fan? Is he Mormon?
