BYU basketball had the college basketball world buzzing after their 81-49 thrashing over No. 12 Oregon in the PK Invitational.

The Cougars, not the Ducks, looked like the squad that belonged in the Top 25 rankings. Senior guard Alex Barcello went off for 25 points in the 32-point victory, making a clear statement that he and his team are to be taken seriously nationally this season.

The College Basketball world on social media did take notice of BYU’s dominant victory over Oregon. Here are some of the notable reactions.
