Great read on BYU’s past 15 years in the Tournament


Check out this link regarding BYU’s tournament appearances since 2000. Aside from the Jimmer years, there’s been a whole lot of futility. This was put together by Jay Yeomans of JMONEY SPORTS. He does a lot of BYU coverage. And for those interested, he does a game-by-game recap of every Jimmer/New Orleans Pelicans game.

A look back at the BYU Cougars’ most recent trips to the dance

As for the Cougars in the 2015 dance – I guess they got what they deserved. They got in by the skin of their teeth. A play-in game against Ole Miss is not ideal but winnable. And so would the second game be against Xavier. I see them going no further than the round of 32 though.

You gotta figure Dave Rose will tell Tyler Haws and Kyle Collinsworth to go for broke. They can and will have to carry the team. I expect the same style of play we’ve seen all year. Get up and down, and let’r fly on the 3 point shot.  BYU could be a lot of fun to watch. They could also shoot themselves right out of the game if the buckets aren’t dropping. We all know the Cougars have no interior presence. Perhaps Kaufusi will continue to improve and show big.
