    Correct. Abouo has very dark hands and you could see a sliver of light between his hands and the ball.

    Harden dropped 30 points on us that day in Harden-like fashion. Over half of them came from the free throw line.

    This second half has been a turd so far. So bad.

    Good to get a win at Pepperdine; those have seemed hard to come by.

    It didn’t start that way.

    Baxter showing some signs — I liked that.

    Yeah he looked great.

    This is a difference between football and basketball. The tide doesn't usually turn very much or often in football. At some point, if one team starts looking much better than the other, it is much less common to see it revert back at a later point in the game. It happens, but not nearly as often as in basketball. That's what makes following comments on fan boards during basketball games funny.

    I agree it was nice to see Baxter playing like that. I don't believe he was home from the mission more than a couple of months or so when the season started and it seemed like his timing and other things was just off at first. Last night he seemed to be a lot more comfortable with his game and he looked good. Substitute his time last night with Nixon. Do we still hold on to win? A little bit of a scary thought. That said, I don't like to bash players, but we guys like Baxter to make a difference.

    So I started watching late - the DVR was recording the wrong channel. As soon as I started watching, the Don's go on a 16-0 run to take a 14-point lead which they maintained through to the half. Haws had a few buckets in the last five minutes but both the offense and defense have been pretty bad overall.

    Dons’ plan was simple. They trapped Yoeli early and often at the high post. It gummed up the works and resulted in several dry spells on offense when the perimeter shots stopped dropping. USF made a bunch of true junk shots (like real garbage stuff—off-hand banking runners, etc.) that won’t fall in Provo, but overall I’d say that team is better than BYU. I think we’re playing for 4th place in this conference right now.

    This is the perfect summary of that game. USF is not a good 3pt shooting team, but against BYU they were lights out and a lot of those shots they missed so bad they went in. Yo was taken out of the game in the first half by that trap. Once USF trapped, BYU did not know what to do. I actually felt like we missed Hardnett, he can't shoot but he can get to the rim. USF doesn't have any shot blockers and I think he would have done well against them.

    All of these blowouts we battle back in the second half only to run out of gas without ever completing the comeback. The first 5 minutes of the second half was the best basketball we have played all season. Great defensive energy, Yo was dominating the post, Cannon hit a few wide open threes. Then we remembered who we were, a mediocre team that will most likely finish 4-5th in the WCC.
