BYU Escapes Against Rebels

A great way to start off the conference season. It wasn't a great stats performance, as BYU was outshot from the field and arc, but they pulled it together when they needed it. The win ended a three-game losing skid to UNLV, and will probably give BYU a TON of momentum heading into a really crucial stretch...

With an off Jimmer (still suffering from sickness), somebody else had to step up, and that guy was none other than JT. He scored 17 points and pulled down 9 boards, and had two really clutch 3s. Freshman phenom Tyler Haws also scored 12 points, and Jackson Emery was phenomenal on both sides late in the game.

But, the glaring question is this: how good is BYU without Jimmer? Sure they can beat lowlifes, but when they play good teams like UNLV, I'm not so sure they've got enough to win, especially on the road in conference. If nothing else, Jimmer proved just how vital he is to the Cougars' hopes in the conference tourney and beyond...
