BYU took down Santa Clara tonight by the score of 82-67. Check out the AP story on the game and box score here. Rather than duplicate the effort on that recap I'll just give you some random thoughts on the game.
- BYU came within a hair of losing its best player, Noah Hartsock, for the season. That would have been disastrous for the team. Hartsock twisted his knee in a grotesque looking way and stayed on the floor writhing in pain. It looked like he was down for the season to me. But after a while Hartsock was able to get up and walk off. More surprisingly Hartsock passed all the trainers' tests and even came back in. BYU seems to have dodged a huge bullet.
