Rose is certainly working on his WCC rotation. LP3, Childs and Rose. He may play with Davis vs. Childs but this seems to be the team going forward. Davis or Guinn first off the bench. I would have liked to see Dastrup eating up bench time because of his upside but Aytes has earned his time. If you watched the game, Haws, who some on this board have bagged on in recent games hit almost every shot, including his 1st two 3s, to go along with 4 assists in the first half. He is so fun to watch when he goes to the hoop…Haws to Mika, play of the year…I still don’t understand why Haws does not lift weighs, he looks like a bean pole.
Guinn is my choice of BYU’s lockdown-hustle guy. He can defend all bug the biggest forwards but then Childs can defend everyone from 1-5. Loved how he got out and defended Weber’s star so hard that Senglin had to pass the ball. Childs is going to be legend before he is done with BYU.
Mika can’t be stopped no matter what teams throw at him. Fear that he may be gone next year.
Emery made up for a poor shooting night by leading the team in assists.
I saw only one instance of Hero Ball last night when Haws tried a heat check and was benched right after that. The guys are defending better but there is still too many times late in the opponents offense that we totally forget about the guy on the opposite side, wide open for an easy 3, the WCC lives on this and BYU needs to fix it.
BYU is still terrible at hitting an open 3, keep on firing. Davis, still the worse passer I have seen in years and as Childs continues to learn, I see him taking time from Davis, no knock on Davis, who is a life time double-double machine, Childs is just so athletic and a way better defender.
The refs are calling some ticky tack junk out there, leaving Davis and Childs both bewildered. This may be a good thing as we all know how touchy feely the WCC refs are.
Lastly, Frampton…why is he getting minutes over a very good Beo? My suspicion is that Rose sees Frampton as a better defender (how about that charge he took, WOW). Frampton also knows the LP3 game in and out and is would seems that Rose is all in on the LP3, much to some fan’s chagrin.
