On Friday night, the Smith Fieldhouse on the campus of BYU was home to the inaugural "Boom Shakalaka: The BYU Basketball Showcase." The event was basically a souped-up version of the basketball tipoff events that the team puts on just before the start of each new season.
This year's showcase featured three main events. First was a three-point contest amongst a majority of the members of the team. Then came an overall skills challenge featuring four teams comprised of a member of the men's basketball team, a member of the school's women's basketball team and a student of the school. The night concluded with a dunk contest between four players.
While the event was obviously not a place for scouting the team, there were some insights to be gained from how certain players performed during the challenges. Let's take a look at five such insights.
