BYU vs. Slovenian Junior National Team

BYU's first pre-season game was Saturday, November 21 against the
Slovenian junior national team. BYU scored the first 13 points of the
game then the Slovenians managed to keep things interesting until half
time when the score was 46-26.

BYU came out hot in the second half and went on a 19-2 run then
coasted the rest of the way to take a 98-46 win.

Randy Reid, the coach's son, started the game and showed that he isn't
just the coach's son, he can play too. He played 28 minutes and scored
21 points. Forward Russell Larson added 17 points and six rebounds,
while center Gary Trost (13) and forwards Shane Knight (11) and Tony
Woods (10) also scored in double figures.

Guard Ryan Cuff missed the game with a deep bruise above the knee.
Kevin Nixon also did not see action as he is injured.

BYU vs. Athletes in Action

The second pre-season game took place on Wednesday, November 25
against Athletes in Action. This looked to be a more interesting game
as this AIA team took the University of Utah to overtime the night
before in Salt Lake City.

Russell Larson and Kevin Nixon sat this game out with injuries.

I ventured down to Provo to take this game in and was quite impressed
with the team and with the Marriot Center's new scoreboard which
features four large TV screens so those of us on the top row can check
out the action.

BYU scored the first 16 points in this game then played about even
with AIA to the half to take a 42-30 halftime lead. Randy Reid started
out hot again, scoring 9 of BYU's first 25 points, but he wouldn't
score any points after that.

In the second half, BYU seemed to lose concentration a little. Gary
Trost picked up two quick fouls and went to the bench with 3
personals. The AIA team came back to within 5 points early in the
second half.

BYU called time out to re-group then made a run with Ryan Cuff's two
assists to reserve center David Astle for two layups. Later, Cuff hit
a 3-point shot and Nick Sanderson followed with a drive for a 3-point
play to build the lead to 70-55. BYU won the game by 20 with a final
score of 90-70.

I was very impressed with the play of Freshman Tony Woods. He wasn't
in the game a lot, but played very well when he was, scoring 7 points.
