Home sweet home. Cougs finally get to play in the Marriott. Pomerroy said years ago that the standard 4 point boost of home court was not enough. He said it was more like 6 but I would counter that for a team like BYU, that shoots a high% of 3s, HCA is more like 8 or 9 points.
BSU was dismal in its outside shooting vs Houston 1-16. They are good at guarding the 3 so far but have not faced a team like BYU. Advantage BYU and the primary reason why I call this a BYU win.
BSU is guard driven by 6’2 Dennis and 6’2 Shiver Jr. They lead the team in scoring at about 14ppg each. Our ABBA Sr’s should be able to slow them down. Toss up.
not too dominate inside, BYU should hold their own or dominate if Haarms is feelin better.
This is a game where Lohner/George should begin to shine. You don’t know how big a deal it was for Lohner to get those 3s to drop in the USU game.
BYU wins 74-69
