    Our unathletic white guy teams in the past competed well mainly because of excellent three throw and three point shooting. WTF has happened in the last five years in those two areas?

I can deal with Yo going 1-2 - he's not a great shooter and certainly doesn't have a pure stroke. But for dudes like Seljaas to miss the front end of a crucial 1 and 1 and for Emery to brick the front end of what would've forced USD into a rushed 3 after going the length of the court is unacceptable. Unathletic white dudes have one job and that is to be great free throw shooters. Haws is really the only guy I trust to take critical foul shots and yet our team is full of unathletic white dudes. Cannon? 53% from the stripe. Emery? 72% Harding? 65%. You guys have one job.

    Pathetic FT shooting at the end of regulation notwithstanding, that was a nice win. Only the second home loss this year for SD. This year's BYU team has had some head-scratching pathetic games, but one thing they have done is perform well in close games. We have closed out a lot of tight games this year and they deserve credit for that.

    TJ is having a helluva year. Remember when tooblue said he was a cancer and the main problem on the team? Good times.

    I was really down on TJ last year and beginning of this year, but he has definitely turned it around.

    Just in time too. We needed someone to step up when the team MVP went down with a flurry of DNPs - Coach's Decision.

    Kinda does seem like they're just throwing 'em up sometimes, right?

    Childs is giving Cannon an earful for that forced pass.

    Way to close it out, BYU. Nice job with free throws.

    Yep Seljaas and Baxter were solid and 18/21 FTs isn’t bad. Fun last 10 minutes. The 1-3-1 with Baxter at the top kind of worked this time.

    20 wins in the regular season could still happen with just winning 2 home games. No bad losses yet in conference. I’m liking this team more and more. Sign me up for NIT tickets!

    I took the family to the game. Really fun last ten minutes. Go Cougs!

    If Yoeli sticks around for his senior year, Jesse Wade is almost as good as Dave Rose thinks he is and nobody gets hurt next year BYU could actually have a good team.

    Why in the name of all that is holy would Yoeli go pro somewhere for next year?

    Yeah. Those German cagers need to mind their own business.

    Jesse looks really good in practice. He hits a lot of shots and has very active hands.
