Game Notes: Portland Pilots vs. BYU Cougars

By Wally Jeter

  • About halfway through the 1st half the Pilots were up by 5 points and things were looking pretty good. After a bit of a dry spell the Pilots found themselves down by 6 at halftime. Then things got worse... Pilots played competitively but now and then it seems the team would blackout and the Cougars would have a 4 point swing in their favor. Soon the Pilots were down by 22. Then Bobby Sharp did what Bobby Sharp does and started raining 3-pointers. The Pilots cut it down to 7 which is amazing in itself, but the run ended there. 
  • Alec Wintering is a Golden God. 30 points. 3-3 behind the arc. Still oozing confidence after that San Diego game winner.
  • D'Marques Tyson came back to earth. 0-3 on 3's, not sure any hit the rim.
  • The Pilot's seem to be going away from low post play and instead are working Alec Wintering's penetration (17 free throws!). Could work if he keeps shooting around 85% from the line.
  • Over 17,000 in attendance, Mormon's love basketball!!!
  • Alec Wintering. Alec Wintering. Alec Wintering. Alec Wintering. Alec Wintering. Tyler Haws (the Haws mention was just for internet hits)........
