    here's a link, white lightning: http://www.justin.tv/sportzzworld4#/w/788257920/2


    BYU's bigs got in big foul trouble (both picked up their 4th foul in less than 30 seconds of game time), and now it's a ball game at Colorado State. CSU has a sophomore guard who is playing great. Eckmeier (spelling?) is his name.

    I watched the entire 2nd half. Thanks Jimmy. For those of you who missed it. Jimmer Fredette scored 42 points in another huge win for BYU. They have to move up into the top 5 teams in the country soon. They looked great. I just never get tired of watching this kid play. Incredible!

    it was "weird" how the announcers in the CSU-BYU game kept repeating the mantra that the affletic defender who came on for the Rams in the second half was "doing a great job of holding down Fredette." yep, he "held" Fredette to 21 second-half points. that's some "great" defending, to be sure. [​IMG]
    meanwhile, Collinsworth almost disappeared in the second half, but thankfully for BYU fans Jackson Emery stepped up big down the stretch. each of them finished with 16 in the game.

    for CSU, Wes Eikmeier (ihave his name spelled correctly this time!) had a breakout game. the sophomore transfer from Iowa State finished with a team-and-career-high 25 points to go along with 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and just 1 turnover. hopefully this game will get the former two-time Nebraska Gatorade Player of the Year's career on track. up to now, it's been a mostly frustrating collegiate experience for the talented 6-3 combo guard.

    I had the pleasure of attending the CSU/BYU contest and seeing Jimmer Fredette play.
    Everything about the kid was fun to watch. His agility, his ballhandling, his mid range jumper, his poise,etc.

    The guy that was on him the 2nd half, Dwight Smith I believe is his name, could notstop him and had numerous fouls called on him as a result (and what sould have been a few more)

    On CSU's side Wes Eikmeier definitely was an integral part in keeping CSU close throughout the game connecting on several 3's

    Being in the student section I had to refrain from clapping and cheering when he scored a basket when everyone else were yelling out resounding boo's whenever he touched the ball[​IMG]

    I have a fairly basic cable package and I'm watching it on CBS Sports Network. It's a kinda new channel so you might wanna search around for it on your tv.

    Anytime. I've got it on TV but I got a pretty good system for finding them so let me know if it gets disconnected and I'll try to find another one.

    Me too. And Im in the Philly area so make sure its not part of your cable package. If its in mine all the way on the other coast, then it should/could be in your guys too.

    I'm not exaggerating, the lone black guy who's on the court for BYU has missed 3 layups already!!! The irony!







    JC, Did you get the one working?Edited by: Toby Hillis

    i like how the announcers keep pointing out that (almost all-black) San Diego State has had to completely change their game plan in order to matchup with the faster, up-tempo pace of (almost all-White) BYU and their speed. ha! i thought that was impossible ... [​IMG]

    yes, sir. but thanks to my slow connection speed, it is choppy ... except for during the commercials, of course. "funny" how they never seem to break up. *sigh* but thanks again for the link, man. [​IMG]

    for any teams with BYU coming up on the schedule, i suspect that theypronounce"Jimmer" so it rhymes with "nightmare."

    this guy is killing anyone and everyone who tries to guard him. wow.

    He has a crossover that could shake MJ in his prime. Jimmer has 20 points at the half against the number 4 ranked team in the nation. Never have I enjoyed watching any point guard as much as this kid. He scored the last 15 points for BYU. Simply amazing. Come on Cougars. They need this win to help them move up in the polls. Go BYU. Go Fredette!
