Two things you can't ignore from last night:
Assists: BYU once again assisted on more than two-thirds of their baskets. That's six times they've done that this season. Last season, it never happened once. This isn't a fluke. It's how BYU plays.

Threes: Elijah Bryant is going to make his. He's shooting just over 40% from three this year, shooting within the offense, and is the bailout guy when the Cougs are late in the shot clock. TJ Haws was shooting under 30% until last night, when he went an encouraging 4 for 9. Haws has to shoot better. Last night he did. Is it a trend, or a blip?

And one thing you CAN ignore from last night: shooting percentages for the opponent. At one point, Illinois State was shooting less than the exterior temperature, and went 0-for-15 from three in the first half. BYU's defense is better than last year, but not that much better. Then they lost focus--almost entirely, on the defensive end--and the Redbirds put up 7 for 9 in the second half. BYU's defense isn't that bad, either. Just one of those nights.

Take the W. Win the next one (should be easy enough). Then we'll talk turkey.

Daschle Robert Parr, you are an incredibly competitive boy....and a bit of a showoff.
