Thorough Beating by BYU 78-54

Post by PilotDrummer on Sat Dec 01, 2007 9:54 pm

Definately wasn't a home game in terms of the crowd. We were vastly outnumbered by seemingly every BYU fan in the state.

I'll let the people who have real commentary about the game chime in. My hands hurt!

Tonight's game reminds me of Gonzaga's annual invasion, right down to the cheers and thorough whipping. I got to see a game from the student section for the first time ever tonight (I'm usually "working" these games, remember).

I thought most of the guys looked good for brief periods, but BYU was faster and stronger. Hannibal in particular looked like he was working hard out there, and I'm sure the results will come.

A nice sight to see: B.J. Porter working individually with asst. coach Jackson on ballhandling and shooting two hours before game time. Jackson seems like a great coach--patient, explaining how he wanted the drill done, pointing out little things to improve, and pushing B.J. B.J. seemed like he really wanted to do well and become a better player. By the way, he's a better dribbler and shooter than I am--but that's why I play trumpet Smile

So, on reviewing the box score, Hannibal had 4 points, 1 reb, 1 to in 14 minutes. But it looked to me like he was hustling. matve next time I'll check the stats before I post.

Hannibal may have had little production, but there were several times where he was wide open and the the point did not feed him, mostly off of pick & rolls. I agree that he looks like he is making progress. Although he needs to be able to get down the court a little quicker.

Yes, I noticed both those things as well. There's a lot to be excited about watching these guys.

Invasions suck . . . especially when we lose. Some of the worst memories I have come from sitting behind Kennel Club t-shirts in the Chiles Center. Of course, one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had was sitting next to Ducks and Beavers at the Oregon and Oregon St. wins in Holton's last year. Let's hope there's more of the latter to come.

Glad to hear how Hannibal's improving. Anything else positive that we can take from this game?

Sometimes invasions can be pretty cool. I remember walking by Ernie Kent the time we beat the Ducks when they had the Lukes. He was jumping up and down looking at the crowd and chanting "home court, baby, home court". Well, the crowd was about 1/3 Pilot fans, 1/3 Duck fans, and 1/3 neutral.

By the end of the game, I swear even some Duck fans were cheering during Pilot scores.

I think the fan reaction at the BYU game could have been different if the Pilots were a bit more competitive.
