BYU is the best....

team in the Coaches vs. Cancer tournament. Sorry to make your blood pressure rise a bit, but overall they have quiet the team and have a very good chance of winning the tournament. I expect by now most of you know the big name for BYU, Brandon Davies, if you don't go look him up and come back please. Davies has already started the season out well with 28 points against Georgia State Panthers and a very strong outing in BYU's first game. Two other highly touted players are Carlino and Haws an efficient back court duo. Carlino is a good distributor and can stroke it from deep. While it pains me to say this, Pangos and Carlino are similar players. Haws is back from his Mormon mission and has apparently put in the work to hit the ground running this season.

What does this have to do with Gonzaga? BYU will face decent and good competition for the first time in the Coaches verses Cancer tournament, and the better competition should show a little bit more about this BYU team. So far the BYU Cougars have handled business against the lesser competition unlike a certain PAC 12 school in Washington or even another PAC 12 school in LA that needed overtime to put away the competition. The upcoming games against Florida St. and possibly Notre Dame or St. Joe's will provide a good test of skill for the Cougs. The best possible scenario for GU is of course is BYU blows out the competition and then loses spectacularly to GU at home.

In short, BYU is a good team. Davies, Carlino, and Haws are all good players. BYU has a really good shot of winning the Coaches verses Cancer tournament. It should show a bit more about the true ability of the team.
