    I voted RHJ even though he did what he could to make me throw my remote through the screen. His hustle was huge and his timely rebounds were great. He also drew the Loverage assignment and almost blanked him from the field.

    That first half was beautiful from York, but then he missed a few shots and boom, all confidence gone.

    I'll give it to rhj for scoring the first 6 in overtime. Ripped down two HUGE offensive boards and the made that beautiful step through move

    Came down to Nick and RHJ for me. Other than TJs FT near the end of OT, they were the only two players to score over the last 12 minutes of game time.

    I gave it to York, his best play in the first half in the season. At one point he was like a combination of himself + Nick and TJ!

    The real Nick was back! Rondae's OT performance was impressive. Finally I am really mad at AG!

    Brandon Taylor for his virtuoso performance at the foul line in overtime. Missed 4 in a row and made the one he was trying to miss.

    Had to give it to Nick. Those jumpers were what we needed, when we needed them. And then the free throws. Rondae's game was excellent. He's a gamer. Gabe hit his shots and played some good D. I keep waiting to see Elliot burn that net up.

    Rondae slight edge over Nick. I thought he made some amazing rebounds and some tough shots. Getting better every game.

    Remember Rondae was INJURED!

    This was the toughest one all year for me.

    Gabe was awesome in the first. Rondae was the OT. Nick for gambling reasons.

    Had to go with RHJ though. Not only did he win the game in OT for us, doing damn near everything, he did this all hobbled and did it at a great level. He seemed to get less hobbled as the game went on.

    Absolute gamer.

    Nick and RHJ kept Arizona in that second half. Nick's clutch shooting was te difference.

    Nick. And not Rondae just because he had 3 turnovers and attempted too many jumpers, even though it looked like some kind of injury was limiting him.

    Gave it to York for putting all those points on the scoreboard when he did.

    Gabe... His shooting was timely and was the difference maker. Remember, utah was 16-1 at home. Gabe was the spark.

    Gonna give it to Nick. Gabe was great in the first half, but Nick brought it for them. It was good to see some shots start falling, not nearly enough and with the right consistency but still good. Good win at what is a hard place to win this year.

    Co MVP honors for Brandon Taylor for the free throws and the player who threw the lob pass to the crowd in that open dunk.

    Sometimes wins come from the other team imploding. Look at Florida's game last night...

    Gave it to Rondae for his energy, defense, and clutch offensive rebounding/baskets. York was a contender, but his inability to score in the second half hurt his overall rating for the game.

    Also, not sure what people are seeing when they say that Nick brought it last night. Yes, he hit a couple of big, timely shots, and iced the late free throws, but he finished 4-10 from the field with 2 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 blocks, 0 steals, and a lot of defensive miscues, including a few that led to highlight-reel dunks (or dunk attempts).

    Finally, honorable mention to Zeus, the only Cat who cleared more than 4 rebounds. Not sure how the team was -6 in that category, other than a lack of effort.

    Despite all that, a gritty effort to pull out what easily could have been a loss. The crowd was rocking the last several minutes of regulation, but the Cats somehow found a way to end up on top.

    I'll still give it to York, even though his stupid turnovers led to fastbreak points for the Utes.

    I started to give it to York over Nick because I thought points scored in the first half by a soph in a surprise start who didn't score much last year count the same in the final tally as clutch points even though often overlooked by fans. Then I remembered that RHJ played hurt and should get some WARRIOR credit for the points that Loveridge did not get.
    So I gave the day to Rondae.

    Delon Wright had the worst game of his season and Nick guarded him more than anybody, and Wright is head and shoulders Utah's best player. Easily goes to NJ.
