First 15 baskets were made off of 15 assists—now that’s some team basketball right there.

The team does look better right now than they were last year (thanks Schroyer!). The jury is still out on NCAA Tourny-level improvement. About 70-ish in the computers now. Beating Utah State and Utah would really help. I also really hope we avoid bad losses this year (sub-150 RPI).

It was nice to beat UVU, that's for sure.

Utah Valley's ESPN ranking coming into the season was 157 and their current RPI is 53. Here is our PER against them:

I'm very interested to see what Cannon's PER ave will be after 3 games. Can Childs go for a hat-trick and get 3 awesome games in a row?

BYU's knocked off 2/3 Utah teams. Time to get the third! Great game vs USU tonight. BYU is playing some in-control disciplined basketball.
I'm really liking Elijah Bryant, TJ, CAnnon has been a very welcome surprise. Obviously this team would be a lot less without Yeoli. Great TEAM feel to them this year though.

Childs/Bryant/Hardnett/Cannon are a great 4 right now.

Don’t they still play both Weber and :utard:? So they are only half way home with in state teams.

Byufan4, I am looking forward to your Utah State per rankings. The team will look good and I think the Shelley Fella will be at or near the top.

Ask and ye shall receive!! 8)

While I liked the MWC from a competitive standpoint I do not miss the TV deal. And not just because of $. I was not able to watch this on my Playstation Vue. :~( Here is the Utah St. PER:

Cannon, in his second game, coming off the bench, gets Player of the Game! I know it feels good to beat an in-state rival, but just how good of a win was this? Utah St. was ranked #127 by ESPN coming into the season and currently has an RPI of #167. So this was an average win, but I'll definitely take it!

Here is the season ave PER so far. Still need another week to see where Cannon is really going to settle in. But I'm liking him so far!
