Gavin Baxter and the ‘this is the year’ of BYU basketball’s season

The most exciting three minutes of BYU basketball came Saturday.

That’s not to discount times Yoeli Childs has single-handedly changed the makeup of a game in the post, or times when TJ Haws, like against UCLA, sliced and diced up a defense. So perhaps it’s more accurate to say the most exciting three minutes for the future of BYU basketball came Saturday.

Sophomore forward Gavin Baxter grabbed one rebound and drew one foul in three minutes of action.

And BYU is ecstatic.

Rewind to late September when VTF broke the news that Baxter had suffered a shoulder injury that was expected to make him miss all of the 2019-20 season.
