Introducing the BYU Hoops Mailbag

Men's Basketball Blog | Nov 05, 2013 - Posted by knielsen at 9:49 am | Updated: November 5, 2013 2:42 pm | Permalink

This season the BYU Athletic Communications staff will start a weekly mailbag where fans can get questions answered related to Cougar hoops. It can be a historical question, a burning question about this year's team, some statistical minutae, a detail you noticed on television, questions about how the West Coast Conference is performing or anything else – but not recruiting. Try to aim for something higher than is 'so-and-so single?' We'll put together a selection of questions and answers each Wednesday throughout the season.
