Re: Utah Valley Upsets BYU
Mark is from northern Ca. I love his coaching style teach hard nose defense. I doubt he would leave UVU for LB St.
Didn't Mark Madsen play for the Lakers? Would he ever have any interest in returning to the LA area? Could live in Manhattan Beach again or is life in Utah Valley where he wants to remain?
I watched the game and UVU played great physical defense limiting BYU to 32% shooting before a capcity crowd of over 7500 at UVU. After the game UVU's Harding said 2 OT wins in Ca really propelled the team. UVU has won 7 in a row and is 7-1.
I guess that Utah Valley game wasn't such a bad loss after all. They just beat #12 BYU 72-65 in OT. Mark Madsen is doing a great job at Utah Valley and this is the kind of coach we need at Long Beach. Either a good young assistant or a former player that understands the game and can coach a team in 2021 not 1981 like CDM. Congrats on a great win.
