Perhaps lost in our coverage in Sunday's newspaper (and online Saturday night) of BYU's 47-46 win over Houston was a centerpiece article I wrote about BYU freshman basketball player Eric Mika, and the gigantic expectations that are already being heaped upon this kid.
Since the article came out, several folks have asked or emailed me about listing Mika at 6-foot-11. Is he really that tall?
Well, who knows?
On the updated roster at BYUCougars.com, Mika is listed at 6-10. His profile page on the school's website also lists him at 6-10.
However, Mika's profile page on the preseason prospectus handed out by BYU on media day listed him at 6-11. In the very same prospectus, Mika's height is listed at 6-9 on the roster.<
