UCLA

UCLA it is! Phew...I wasn't looking forward to Michigan St.

UCLA didn't play that tough a defense in the 1st half but they came out locked down in the 2nd. I was more pressed by UCLA's offense than Michigan's, but it did seem liked both teams played a lot of iso ball.

Re: Coach K was let go by Utah.

He will have to go to a DII school or an assistant somewhere else. Or, just retire.

Re: Selection Sunday

Not thrilled at the possibility of playing MCU. Apparently they are "down" this season.

I think between UCLA and MCU, I would rather play UCLA.

Re: BYU vs Zags

So, so close. Gonzaga defense was smothering and the offense faltered down the stretch.

BYU vs Zags

Umm... wow. Not what I was expecting. Can we sustain it?

Kispert will heat up. Need to keep the pressure on him and Timme.

This has probably been the best half of BYU basketball I have seen.

Re: Pepperdine

I had my doubts there in the final minutes. It wasn't looking good. That was an ugly, ugly game and we clearly looked flustered and rusty at times. I think it was not only good preparation for tonight's game but also good for next week. We're going to get teams' best shot. Pepp wanted that game and ...

Re: Bold Prediction: Coaches Next Year

Ha!

I think Pope is here for a few more seasons. I get the feeling he wants to do something great at BYU, but I do see his staff getting raided.

Re: Player Pipeline

Unless Barcello comes back we're going to struggle at PG again. Barcello and Avarette handle duties. There isn't that third guy getting a few minutes here and there. I don't see Harding running point his ball handling and passing just isn't there. Same with Johnson and Knell. So either Pope knows so...

Re: Post Season

If we can get a 6th seed that would be great. I don't see us getting higher than a 6 unless we beat Gonzaga in the WCC finals.

Post Season

Unless the wheels completely come off, it looks like we are tourney bound. Even if we lose against SMC on Sat and lose the first game of the WCC tournament we'd still be a bubble team. But I don't see us losing on Sat and something tells me after a first round exist last year Pope is going to have t...
