I'd look for more from Meehan and Blanchette in the overnight early morning hours.

From Provo: BYU lacks the inside game to win in the WCC: http://www.heraldextra.com/sports/college/byu/basketball/men/lloyd-byu-basketball-has-to-get-consistency-down-low-to/article_5e233329-2cf5-5638-a61b-22757c687403.html

That BYU slanted writer has the same syndrome as the rest of their fans. The whole article struck me as a "what if?" The BYU fans still can't get over their lack of success in the WCC.

Few said Edwards has an MCL sprain, and is “not looking good” to try and return to the lineup by Tuesday night’s WCC final game against Saint Mary’s.

Blanchette: Column is littered with great quotes: http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2016/mar/07/blanchette-hard-work-keeps-zags-epic-run-alive/

Provo Daily Herald: Interesting quote: “Sitting up here (in the post-game interviews) I have a senior (Collinsworth) who has been in the program eight years from the time he committed to right now," Rose said.

On defense: BYU didn’t have field goals on consecutive possessions the entire second half – nothing resembling a run.

Video: Top 10 plays from the latest epic battle between BYU and Gonzaga (http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865649569/Video-Top-10-plays-from-the-latest-epic-battle-between-BYU-and-Gonzaga.html?pg=all)

The eMac rebound and putback was a huge play (#8 in video) in the game. I don't know how he got such great position and so high in the air, but it was awesome.

Few said he believes his team deserves a bid to the NCAA Tournament and tried to dispel the notion that the WCC has not been a competitive league this year. “BYU’s a tournament team, Gonzaga’s a tournament team and Saint Mary’s is a tournament team. … I think the league has been undervalued. I don’t think we played the RPI game very well, so many people have to base it off that,” Few said. “I’ve been in situations where I was the one or two seed, and if I were a one seed or two seed and saw this team pop up against us, I wouldn’t sleep this week, I’ll tell you that. … We’ve been in every game down to the last possession. And I honestly feel like if we play the one or two seed we’d play them down to the last possession.”

Attaboy.

No kidding. This field is soft this year and to say a 27 win smc team or 25 win team in gonzaga team at worse isn't in is a joke. There isn't 34 teams better for a at large bid. I'm sorry their just isn't.

Yeah, that Collinsworth video is great. Much respect going both ways. Very classy by all. He is one great competitor.

Kyle is awesome. Always has been a special kid. Even during his days at Provo High. Had he chosen a school other than BYU, he would have been a Wooden Award candidate last year or this...

It's too bad Collinsworth played for BYU or else I would appreciate him as a player and individual even more. I love what he was telling to Perkins, "Work hard."

That's good stuff. Thanks for sharing!!!
