Phil Watson of Fansided’s Hoops Habit looked at the NBA award races and Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert was mentioned multiple times.

First, Watson has Gobert at No. 3 in the race for Most Improved Player, stating, “Now in his fourth season, Rudy Gobert continues to make strides for the Utah Jazz.”

Then, after talking about Gobert’s stat line, Watson continued, “Gobert has learned what he does well and does that, taking a whopping 98.9 percent of his shots from inside of 10 feet and 85.4 percent from three feet and in. He’s made 77 dunks already and those account for 42.2 percent of his attempts.”

Gobert is brought up once again in the Defensive Player of the Year category, where he is listed at No.1.

BYU answered right back when Taysom Hill connected with Mitchell Juergens for the 25-yard touchdown to tie the game. Jamaal Williams did a lot of work on the possessions with seven carries for 46 yards, including an 8-yard run on third and 4.
