So BYU gets a very good grade for the first half. I thought they played well as a team and got a lot of players involved. The first half was a definite team effort though at times I saw some of the same players trying to do it all.on their own. TJ looks good and then tries to do too much. Yoeli was playing within himself. Baxter showed well, Harding seemed like a non factor, Seljaas had a great first half. Emery is still struggling and hurts the team right now. Worthington is the same non contributor we typically see. Overall it was a good first half.
Second half off to a bad start. Not sure why Rose starts the half with Worthington, who had contributed nothing in the first half, but Rose is predictable and that helps opposing coaches with halftime adjustments. A nine point lead is now a two point deficit in the first 5 minutes. I just don’t get it. Luke has 4 fouls now and has inspired Pepperdine. Let’s hope the experience factor takes hold for BYU and they gut out the win.
