BYU Basketball: 2011-12 Regular Season Report Card

BYU finished its regular season schedule on Saturday with a 76-66 win over the Portland Pilots.  Brandon Davies led the Cougars to victory with his third consecutive 20-point game.

The win over the Pilots was the last time Cougars seniors Noah Hartsock and Charles Abouo will take to the Marriott Center floor.  Hartsock, unfortunately, was forced to watch the game from the bench as he recovers from a knee injury.

Abouo, on the other hand, scored 16 points while also grabbing eight rebounds as he pulled within one win of tying Jimmer Fredette as the all-time leader in total wins played in at BYU.

BYU finished the regular season with a 24-7 record, pulling tantalizingly close to a sixth straight 25-win season.  The Cougars will play the winner of Pepperdine-San Diego on Friday night in the quarterfinals of the WCC tournament as they make a push for a conference championship and a guaranteed berth in the upcoming NCAA tournament.

As BYU prepares for the postseason and what could be a precarious week on the "bubble", it provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on the 2011-12 regular season, its first in the WCC.

What went well for the Cougars?  Where did they fall short?  And what does the team need to do in the upcoming postseason to challenge the recent postseason success led by Coach Dave Rose?

Let's break it down player by player, position by position.
