    Honestly I'm thrilled to be down 3 after that half. Some rough stretches.

    This game feels like the opposite of the game in Provo. Hopefully it will be an opposite outcome.

    No Yo to start the half. Interesting. Worthington is going to foul out in the next 2 mins tho.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. --Coach Finstock

    LOL. Looks like the refs took halftime to talk about the lack of fouls called in the first half.

    And 4 team fouls already. Yikes.

    At this point, I’m not sure which I want more: BYU to win or Bennett to lose.

    Refs are taking over this game.

    If I had a dollar for every shot Childs bangs against the front rim I would be a rich man.

    How much height is Nixon giving up to Landale? In spite of that disadvantage Nixon is defending him better than anyone else on the team this season.

    Edit: answer is 4 inches as listed on the rosters.

    These refs. Missed travel at one end, missed foul at the other.

    Nixon isn’t 6’7”. Not a chance.

    Landale walks all over the place. No whistle.

    It was about this point in the game they came back and tied it last time right?

    Well, we got rocked by the Jock.

    He's a senior, right? I think Jock's heir has a man bun, so that's promising for 18-19.

    Landale, Naar, Hermanson and Neal are their seniors. They won't be quite as good next year.

    But for us we start four sophomores. If we can keep the core of our team together and not come back with mostly an entirely new team for seemingly the fourth or fifth year in a row, then I think we can make a serious move on St. Zaga next year. The annual upheaval on our roster in the post Jimmer years has been a real problem.

    Last night was the first time I realized his name was Jock and not Jacques.

    He's Australian, so maybe that's how he ended up with that name. When Australia sends a team to the Olympics is it like a St. Mary's reunion?

    He is ridiculously good. We couldn't stop him.

    They'll be fun to watch in the NCAA tournament because they're so disciplined. They could be a real problem for an undisciplined, even if very talented opponent.

    as of earlier this week, the consensus has Gonzaga as a 7 seed and SMC at 8.

    yeah he is very good and I don't think we were really trying to stop him. Nixon did a decent job but as I posted before the game I think we were ok with the strap getting 30 as long as we locked down the perimeter. Didn't quite work out this time as they shot 43% from three.

    Which is about what they average as a team. Crazy.

    I really admire the way SMC plays basketball. I hate that we can't beat them, but they are fun to watch.
