Just a couple of quick notes before the BYU players check in and open Camp Cougar 2009 on Friday...
BYU's press policies will close the afternoon practices to the media for the first time (the exception being the one afternoon practice open to the public on Friday, August 14th). Speaking as someone who has only attended the morning sessions of practice for a few years now, I am quite okay with this new policy.
A couple of days ago, I spoke of a remaining position switch or two on the defensive side of the ball. Most notably, freshman Remington Peck (recruited as a tight end/linebacker) has been moved to defensive end.
While initially listed inside, JC transfer linebacker Jordan Atkinson has moved outside, and former defensive back Jameson Frazier is now an outside linebacker.
BYU's Charles Abouo played six scoreless minutes as his Cote d'Ivoire national team bounced back with a 73-64 win over host Libya at the African Championships this morning in Benghazi. Abouo took only one shot (0/1 3pfg), with one rebound, a turnover and two fouls.
Cote d'Ivoire faces underdog South Africa at 6:00am MT on Friday morning. A win assures CIV passage to the next round-robin series of three cross-group games.
Meantime, Jonathan Tavernari and Brazil open play in the Super Four tournament Friday afternoon in Rio de Janeiro. Brazil will face Uruguay at 4:00pm MT, then meet either Argentina or Australia on Saturday.
