The Top Ten Tweets is a new feature to VTF. For now it will be specific to certain events around BYU Athletics, with the hope of next fall becoming a weekly feature here. If you come across a funny/enlightening/amusing 140 character display, send a link of it to TopTenTweets@gmail.com and you might just find it here. Also be sure to follow Vanquish The Foe on Twitter.

WHAT. A. GAME!!! A great team effort on BOTH ends of the floor. On the KSL post-game locker room show (forth section down), Kyle Collingsworth was asked when he knew the Cougars were going to get it done. He said, "I knew as soon as Jackson and Noah hit their outside shots...when our outside shots are going like that, it's going to be a long night for the other team." I had the same thought. When everyone else's shots are falling, teams have to make a difficult decision on how to cover Jimmer. In the end the Zags inside dominance could not contend with the Cougars outside dominance. 

In honor of making it to the SWEET SIXTEEN, I leave you with sixteen tweets from last night. Contribute other Tweets and witty comments in the comments section.
