What is going in Salt Lake City? First BYU’s Nick Emery punches Utah’s Brandon Taylor during a game and now Oregon State’s Jarmal Reid blatantly trips a ref during a game.
Emery was only suspended for one game by the Mountain West Conference (MWC) and BYU took no additional action. I felt that was very weak by BYU and the MWC. THe PAC-12 and Oregon State should make a statement and suspend Reid for a couple of games and have him attend counseling or something. What Emery did was terrible and what Reid did was flat out uncalled for.
Another question is, ‘what’s going on in Salt Lake?’
Is there something in the water? Is Utah really that frustrating of a basketball team to play against? Is it the elevation?
Regardless, Utah home basketball games need to be added to the ‘must watch’ list for the rest of the season.
