I missed this, but Eric Mika has declared for the NBA and is going pro.

A local BYU grad tells me that Eric Mika and his wife, Gabrielle, expect him to get a pretty lucrative contract offer to play in Italy, a place they have previously lived and like so much they might opt to go there instead of the NBA unless it's a very good deal to stay home.

Could be the "grind" finally got to him, but BYU Assistant Head Coach Terry Nashif is leaving the program to "pursue business opportunities.

Nashif joined the staff as director of operations when Dave Rose was hired as head coach in 2005. He was named an assistant coach in 2007 and in 2016 was promoted to assistant head coach.

Nashif played at BYU from 2001-05.

A native of Vancouver, Washington, Jordan completed his two year mission in Taipei then redshirted a year at BYU before finally seeing some court action last year as a point guard.

The thing is, in those two years, and I'm guessing he got some schooling on his mission, he's earned his degree in Asian Studies at BYU and has been accepted into law school.

It's an unusual situation....with three years of eligibility left, but with his degree in hand, maybe he should just consider transferring to UP and not worry about losing a year of eligibility.....just saying.   Cool

Turns out the BYU law school wouldn't let him play basketball.

Yeah, I'd heard that.  Turns out he doesn't go to law school at Boston College either, but is getting his MBA while playing in all 32 games and is the third leading scorer on the team with 8.6 per game.

Some may remember this once young man from his time in Portland....

I will say this, BYU needs to shore up its defense, and Schroyer could be the guy to do it.

Interesting article. I wonder which overranked opponents he beat?

On April 28th it was announced that:

1. Junior SG Davin Guinn is leaving the team to attend BYU Law School.
2. Freshman SG Steven Beo is transferring and will have 3 years eligibility.
3. Redshirt Junior F, and former UNLV player, Jamal Aytes has graduated and will transfer with immediate eligibility.

All averaged just over 2 points per game last season at BYU.

All-WCC point guard Nick Emery left the basketball team and BYU....at least for this coming season.

Apparently a pending NCAA investigation into his possible relationship with a booster and his recent divorce are weighing on his mind and he's not capable of playing anywhere near his potential or close to his previous performances at BYU.

Nick has "every intention of returning to the team for the 2018-19 season," but I've also heard the NCAA hasn't yet cleared him of the possible improper "booster relationship."

If he's back in the form he was during the 2016-17 season, he'll be a very big thorn in the side of BYU's opponents...and really annoying too.

Energetic C/F Payton Dastrup, one of the most popular of all the Cougars, has decided to leave BYU.

The obvious issue is playing time! BYU has just been so loaded up front, that despite Dastrup's obvious ability, and his 6-10/250 frame, he wasn't getting the court time most observers thought he deserved.

Hard to say where he'll end up, but you have to believe the conditions of his release won't allow him to play for another school in the WCC or in Utah.  Dastrup is originally from Mesa, AZ, Kramer Knutson's hometown...and presumably, MesaPilot's also. tongue

Don't know what the improper "booster relationship" was, but Emery is back on the team for the 2018-19 season, but the NCAA has ruled he cannot participate in the first nine preseason games (not counting exhibition).

I haven't seen BYU's preseason schedule, but as the only way BYU will get to the NCAA Tournament this coming season is through an at-large berth (I don't see them beating GU on Las Vegas), the Cougars are going to have to win as many preseason games as they can.

Trib wrote:The probe, according to the Tribune story, relates to the use of a car as well as travel and entertainment — such as concerts and visits to amusement parks in California — that Emery indulged in, and whether they were paid for by BYU booster Brandon Tyndall, who is an executive with Fun For Less Tours. Tyndall is also a member of the Cougar Club, which is BYU’s booster organization.

That used to get you tossed. No idea what it is now if you are P5.

Yeah, I agree, Geez.

I think it was about five years ago the NCAA came up with a matrix of penalties for violators.  The penalties that I remember reading about were for coaches and institutions, but there is apparently a sliding scale of penalties for student-athletes as well, and the penalty just depends upon the violation(s).

Some may recall the NCAA structured violations in to four levels (not sure why the NCAA loves Roman Numerals so much....)
Level I: Severe breach of conduct
Level II: Significant breach of conduct
Level III: Breach of conduct
Level IV: Incidental issues

In Emery's case, I believe his transgressions were deemed Level II -- ("Violations that provide or are intended to provide more than a minimal but less than a substantial or extensive recruiting, competitive or other advantage; includes more than a minimal but less than a substantial or extensive impermissible benefit; or involves conduct that may compromise the integrity of the NCAA collegiate model as set forth in the Constitution and bylaws").

In addition to his nine game suspension Emery must "repay" the booster for the gifts he was provided...which was apparently more than cream cheese on a bagel.  Rolling Eyes
