No clue about this team other than they get second and third scraps to BYU, Utah and Utah state. Corey Calvert, Josh Adam’s old backcourt mate in HS transferred from BYU here. Thinking we take care of business here

What is the difference between politicians and stoners? Politicians don't inhale...they just suck.

We badly need a banger in the paint. Any team that is even remotely physical is going to kick our asses on the glass.

That being said there is a grand total of 1 player on the team that can't stroke the three: Nelson. We are a DANGEROUS team behind the arc.

How does a guy like Aimaq end up in Orem, UT? The guy has some serious talent, a really good big.

How the hell are you supposed to defend the post if you get called for a foul when the big ugly center backs you down? Neither Nelson or Thompson created the contact and both of them got called for a foul because their hands were touching the big man? It's not like they were pushing off. If the big guy is hopping backwards and your hand is out in front, that's a foul on you for getting jumped into? These refs suck.

The refs are keeping this one close.

Aimac having 6 offensive rebounds is a big problem. Our rebounding is still putrid.

We need to flop every time he starts to back us down. The refs are clearly protecting him. Better to flop and let him have it if they don't call a foul than get everyone in foul trouble.

Agreed. These refs are terrible. It's like they're trying to set a record for how many times they can blow their whistles.

At least, so far in the second half, they're blowing it against Utah Valley as well.

I'm not typically one to cry about officiating, but dear God these zebras are bad! I'm not sure I've ever seen so many calls get overturned by other officials.

When Jefferies is on he can hit any shot in the gym. Ridiculous range!

Hopefully we can pull through this and get a win. It will be a good learning experience for our young team on what to do when the officials aren't letting you play.

Pokes behind on the boards 33-22. Lucky they are hitting from outside.

With these refs it's like Wyoming is playing 8 on 5...

They haven't called a foul on Utah Valley's big man all game. He bull rushes people in the post and consistently pushes off for rebounds.

Don't look at him sideways, though. That's a foul. Breathing on him is a flagrant.
