    Illinois State's issue wasn't entirely BYU's awesome defense in the 1st half. They were missing some open shots. Reminded me a little of BYU versus UT-Arlington - where one team can't miss and the other can't hit the side of the barn to start the game. In the second half, ILL St began hitting some open shots and was more aggressive on defense - and fought their way back into it.

    That game really reminded me of a lot of the games BYU played when it had those good teams from Rose's 2nd year until Jimmer graduated. BYU would routinely get big leads and then teams would crawl back to some extent. But at the same time you knew the outcome was not in doubt.

    I would really like to see Dastrup earn a consistent role in the rotation but it appears that his playing time will be driven by matchup needs. With McKay Cannon "The Pride of the Shelley Russets" (MCTPOTSR) looking like he might legitimately be more than a glorified Craig Cusick BYU is actually getting some legitimate depth. TJ looked better yesterday so lets hope he is starting to find himself, now the only one wandering alone is Seljaas. So dear to the heart of the sports fan, lets go find him!

    Good defenses, which we are new to, have lapses during games. Two Top 5 teams went down last night. It happens.

    We did still win.
    Glad that I am better than you at something.

    He did look awful. I keep wondering when the real Zac shows up, because this imposter is not so fun to watch.

    Elijah Bryant is a pretty good player when not hobbled by injury.

    Seljaas is shooting 36% from deep considering he is only a soph, playing in a brand new offense (shooting from different spots now) and fresh off a mission. That's not a bad number. The problem is we remember the 50% he shot as a freshman.

    That's fair. By the middle of his freshman season, pretty much every time he released the ball, I expected it to go through the hoop.

    His shot sure is ugly, though, right GM?

    Last night he was very Collinsworth-esque, flirting with a triple double and driving hard and fast to the basket.

    He's so strong. He could go down as one of the greats. Too bad he's surrounded with such mediocrity.

    The HCO needs to ping Selijaas about that hideous haircut.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I think he was interested in talking to BYU but coach K wouldn't release him to be able to do so.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes.

    I am serious. Add some green or purple hair dye, a few tats, and about 15 nose and ear piercings and he would be golden.

    Ten teams in a country with a population of approximately 3 million people. I am glad they are taking their balls there.

    Is that why Topper posted about the Balls in the BYU basketball thread?

    Davies plays for the top Lithuanian team and they actually play in Euroleague. Which outside the NBA is the top league in the world. They play Euroleague games during the week and then their own league games on weekends. Future #1 pick Luka Doncic plays for Real Madrid in the Euroleague. The team the Ball bros are playing on plays in the LKL which is a respectable league, however the Ball bros won't play for them during LKL games. They are playing for them during Baltic league games. To bring this thread back to BYU... The Baltic league MVP in 2011-12 was BYUs own Rashaun Broadus. Rashaun had career averages of 8 points and 3 assists at BYU, but was the best player in the Baltic league for several years. He left the Baltic League for a more lucrative offer playing for the national basketball league of Canada.

    My point is the Ball Brothers are essentially playing in the YMCA of Lithuania.
