Basketball To Cheer About
Posted by Nancy on January 26, 2011
If you happen to be a fan of the Utah Jazz, chances are that you’re pretty down in the dumps lately. As if it’s not bad enough that it’s January and we have to deal with cold, snowy weather, we don’t even get the satisfaction of looking forward to watching our Utah team play ball and win games. They are in a major skid after losing the last FIVE games straight and things aren’t looking any brighter ahead when their next game is against the tough to handle San Antonio Spurs. That feels like a big, black cloud over the head of we Jazz fans for sure.
The news isn’t all bad, however, because if you’re a true basketball fan you can tune in tonight for what is being billed as collegiate basketball’s “big ticket”. Number nine ranked BYU, led by their star guard Jimmer Fredette, will be matched up against the number four ranked SDSU squad. The winner of this highly anticipated game will be in the undisputed first place position in league standings.
A sell-out crowd of 23,000 fans will be on hand at the Marriott Center to cheer on the home team, as well as a host of sports writers and NBA scouts. There’s a lot on the line for this game and amidst all the hype the coaches of both teams are trying to keep their squads focused. BYU’s Coach Rose acknowledged what an important match-up this will be but said that it’s best if the team can look at it as just another game on their schedule and stick to business. Taking care of business is just what is expected of the Cougars tonight. We can be fairly certain that when this team steps onto the court in their BYU basketball uniforms they will focused and ready to play.
It’s a good thing for Utah fans that there is a basketball game to get excited about.
