    BYU is coming to the Kennel on 23 Jan. 2021. The last meeting at home was like a UFC fight. First JT was knocked out of the game with a broken nose. Then Katie Campbell suffered a season ending leg injury going up for a layup.

    Next JT came back in the game with gauze hanging out of each nostril and shot and made two free throws for Katie. Then with the game still on the line 24 second clock near 0, one of the Truong's covered behind the 3 point line shoveled the ball to JT. Jill with players all around her put up a 3 pointer with gauze hanging out of each nose and made it.

    Lets look at the BYU player starters and then their key subs so far this year.

    * #2 Gonzales (5'10") Averaging 20.2 points per game, has 23 steals, shooting 37% on 3 pointers (20-54). #2 has attempted 155 FG.

    * #12 Gustin (6'1") Averaging 12. 3 points, and 13.5 rebounds per game. Good at following up her shots. #12 has attempted 98 FG.

    * #13 Harding (5'9") Averaging 12 points per game. Shooting 32% on 3 pointers (16-50). #13 has attempted 106 FG.

    * #5 Albiero (5'8") Averaging 5.2 points and 4 assists per game.

    * #22 Hamson (6'7") Just moved past her sister on the all time block list at BYU. Number one is her mother. From Lindon, Utah.

    #10 Graham (6'0") Averaging 7.5 points per game. Shooting 48% on 3 pointers (15-31).

    #11 Smiler (5'8") Averaging 4.8 points per game. Shooting 50% on 3 pointers (13-26).

    #15 Perri (6'5") From Pleasant Grove, Utah.

    So looks the BYU has two starters #2 and #13 that like shooting 3 point shots. In addition they have 2 sub players #10 and #11 that are very proficient at 3 point shooting.

    Also #2 Gonzales loves driving to the hoop if you give her chance. #13 Harding also gets her share of layups.

    #12 Gustin is always hits the boards and gets her points in close.

    BYU game Thursday with Pacific was canceled to due to Covid tracing concerns. This info was on the Pacific web site. BYU web site had nothing.

    Just a reminder Covid is public enemy number one. Our game Thursday with San Diego already has been canceled due to Covid, as San Diego program is currently in a 14 day shut down.

    Lady Zags keep your guard up against Covid 24/7 and hope BYU WBB does the same.

        BYU’s Gustin, Gonzaga’s Ejim Collect UCU WCC Weekly Honors

        Story LinksSAN MATEO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its University Credit Union Women’s Basketball Player and Freshman of the Week for January 18, 2021.

        Sophomore forward Lauren Gustin racked up a game-high 16 rebounds and 12 points in the Cougars’ lone contest last week, an 80-63 home win over Saint Mary’s. Gustin, whose double-double was her seventh of the season, also tallied three assists and two steals in 36 minutes of action. Gustin’s relentless effort on both sides of the floor helped limit the Gaels to 37% shooting and gave BYU a 34-22 advantage in points in the paint.

        Freshman forward Yvonne Ejim was instrumental in GU’s sweep of Santa Clara and San Francisco this week as the freshman averaged a season-best 8.5 points over the two-game span. Against Santa Clara, Ejim came off the bench to score seven points in 16 minutes of play, finishing 2-of-3 from the floor and 3-of-6 from the charity stripe. She added two rebounds in the win.

        The Calgary, Alberta native shined in Saturday’s 76-52 victory at San Francisco, finishing with a season-high 10 points off a perfect 5-of-5 from the floor. Ejim provided much-needed assistance when GU’s starting forward LeeAnne Wirth struggled with foul trouble, and she handled San Francisco’s posts inside, helping the Zags outscore USF 42-24 in the paint. For the weekend, Ejim missed just a single shot, finishing 87.5 percent from the floor. She also contributed 1.5 assists per game for the Zags.

          From the BYU Facebook page.

          Tomorrow’s BYU-Pacific game has been postponed due to a COVID-19 related issue within the Pacific program.

            In the AP poll the Lady Zags stayed at 20th.

            A interesting team to watch is Georgia they move up 4 spots to #22 in the AP poll, they are 12-1. Georgia plays their next 2 games against top 25 teams. Their next game Thursday 1/21 is against #4 South Carolina. On Monday 1/25 they play #15 Arkansas.

            So Georgia is nipping at the Zags hills in the rankings. Zag Fans need to root for South Carolina to put on a good showing Thursday against #22 Georgia.

            #4 South Carolina just beat #15 Arkansas 104-82.

              Just got done watching Celebrating America hosted by Tom Hanks. Awesome performances by a wide array of singers. You may never see anything like this again it was awesome. Tom Hanks is in front of Lincoln Memorial where several of the singers perform.

              John Legend was so impressive. Katie Perry closes the program singing her lungs out while in back of her behind the National Monument the most beautiful fireworks display I have ever seen in my lifetime. Singers that I remember country artists Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard duet of their new song "Undivided". Lets see the Foo Fighters will make you jam. Ant Clemons sing Better Days with Justin Timberlake. Wow Ant Clemons is quite the singer high range.

              Bruce Springstein is the opening singer you don't want to miss it. Also singing Jon Bon Jovi, Lin Manuel Mirand, Black Puma.

              I'm sorry I can't remember all the singers names.

              They will be having Celebrating America on the local channels from 8:30 PM to 10:00 PM tonight again. Don't miss it because of the times it was a virtual celebration shared for all of America to watch and we may never see anything like this again. I was deeply moved it gave us direct access to performances from all over the United States, and unfettered access to everything.

              If you enjoy music and you Love America and its diversity you won't want to miss this once in a lifetime chance. Come and sing and dance along. God Bless the United States of America

                  Portland WBB web site says their game with BYU is canceled today in abundance of caution (Covid). Said Portland next game is Sunday (non conference game) but that is still to be determined.

                  Guess we will sit back and cross our fingers about Saturdays game with BYU. The big question is this on BYU end. BYU has a little blip with how long ago the game was canceled going on 4 hours something.

                  Perhaps our local Spokesman Review can give us some info on our Saturdays game with BYU?

                    #11 Michigan vs #17 Ohio State at 12:00PM

                    #4 South Carolina vs #22 Georgia

                    #18 Butler vs Butler

                    Lady Zags fans should be rooting for the teams in bold for a chance to move up in the polls.
                    DePaul vs. Butler. Butler is truly awful, there's almost no possibility of DePaul losing to them. UConn just beat them something like 100-35.

                          BYU beat Pacific today 81-60. I watched the game.

                          #2 Gonzales looks like she is getting faster as the season progresses. She was 7-11 FG, with 5 steals in the first half alone. For the game she scored 23 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 6 steals. She set the tone in the first half that Pacific could not recover from. Several times a opposing player send a slow pass on top and she would jump out steal it and take it coast to coast. She also after making a basket would linger and steal a inbounds pass after making a bucket, catching the opposing team sleeping.
                          Gonzales also was good at getting to the basket around a curl screen for a layups. She also while dribbling to the basket passed off to #5 Hamson for wide open lay in. Several times a opposing player made a pass on top and she would jump out steal it and take it coast to coast.

                          #22 Hamson had a good game 6-9 FG, 9 rebounds, 5 blocks, 3 steals. BYU broadcaster said she has been improving as the season goes on.

                          #10 Graham was 3-5 on 3 pointers today, and added a long jumper for 11 points.

                          #5 Albiero had 6 assist and 6 rebounds.

                          #15 Perri (6'5") Played a lot of minutes in the 1st half. She has a nice range on jumpers, and also capable on 3 point shot. She was 3-5 FG in the 1st half.

                              Tuesday 6:00 PM 2 Feb. 2021- Zags vs BYU in the Kennel


                              #10 Graham is now shooting 50% on 3 pointers.

                              Its going to be a battle underneath the basket.

                              Must stop #2 Gonzales.

                              Lady Zags going to have to play their best game of the year in the WCC.

                              CLF must bring the killer extinct to a game for the first time this year in the WCC.
