Byu becomes rocky

   Fifty-three fouls called wow, it was so bad Referee Gerry Pollard responded to a Colorado State player who was grioing about a foul call " I'm tired of watching you guys shoot free throws. Quit fouling and just play basketball." It was a pure physical Hit, Shove and bruise match to the end, at one point star Jimmer Fredette was almost knocked out by the swing of a CSU player on an inbounds pass, but true to his form he was back in the play a second later. The Cougars drew a comparision to a Shark in the local Provo Paper "the cougars, however teams try to attack, are somehow almost always like sharks, tear out one tooth and another one sharp one grows quickly." Whatever CSU did BYU had an answer for in their interconference 84-76 win . BYU Cemented its shot to have a Conference Championship with a win over the Aztecs in San Diego on Saturday.

   Althouh injured Fredette led the cougars with 34 points on 14/16 foul shooting along with 7 rebounds which seemed like 20, Brandon Davies has now firmly established himself under the basket, and #2 scorer on the team as of late with 14 points on 12/16 at the free throw line and a MONSTER 20 rebounds, young Collinsworth had 8 rebounds and hartsock had 10. The rebounds were the reason Byu was able to get some seperation and win, out rebounding CSU 66-37. the Cougars need to heal and Quickly rebound and head to San Diego. Wednesday nights game was the second straight game of several BYU players in double figures Fredette, Davies, Hartsock and Emery did as Abouo had 9.
