BYU looks to finish strong as it enters its final homestand of the season

With the home stretch of the season nearing, the BYU men’s basketball team looks to stabilize and finish strong in a week that has featured big news for both the players and coaches. Just five games remain for BYU, and it enters into its final homestand of the season this weekend.

The big news this week were announcements made Monday, and again Tuesday in a press conference held at the Marriott Center. On Monday, BYU announced that Dave Rose had received a five-year contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2019-2020 season.

One day after announcing a five-year contract extension for head basketball coach Dave Rose, BYU on Tuesday unveiled plans for multiple facilities improvements, including construction of an indoor practice facility to be located adjacent to the Marriott Center.

The arena itself will undergo significant renovations, with the completion of a lower-bowl seating overhaul and the installation of a new center-mounted scoreboard and video-board/LED-ring displays.

Rose agrees to new 5-year contract with Cougars

Posted Feb 9th - 3:50pm by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — Tom Holmoe, Brigham Young University director of athletics, announced Monday that men’s head basketball coach Dave Rose has agreed to a new five-year contract. Rose’s new deal will keep him in Provo through the 2019-2020 basketball season.

“I’m excited about the future of BYU basketball,” Rose said. “Tom Holmoe, Brian Santiago and the university administration have provided great support and I look forward to the things we can accomplish together over the next several years. We have great student-athletes and coaches at BYU who are committed to the success of our program.”

Rose was hired as head coach at BYU in 2005. Since then, he’s accumulated a record of 250-86, which is the highest winning percentage in BYU history.

BYU looking for continued execution as final month of regular season begins

BYU is looking for continued execution as the final month of the regular season begins

The BYU men’s basketball team saw some improvements this past weekend in a two-game sweep to get back onto the winning track. After losing two straight games for the first time this season, a four-point win at home against San Francisco on Jan. 29 and a 78-57 win over Santa Clara on Jan. 31 bumped its record to 17-7 and 7-4 in the West Coast Conference.

In wins over San Francisco and Santa Clara, progress was seen in many areas, including defensively and in production from BYU's big men. Coach Dave Rose talked about some of these improvements in his weekly radio show Tuesday night.


Cougars look to each other to get back on winning track

PROVO — BYU basketball players looked as if they were practicing with real intent this week, almost as if their lives depended on it.

With last week’s unexpected road loss at the University of San Diego, the Cougars are going to have to hit the hardwood with the mindset that the season is on the line, and they intend to do just that — as a team.

“What I was really concerned about the most is that our guys didn’t seem to be as together as much,” said head coach Dave Rose. “I don’t mean that guys got selfish or that guys were going sideways, but it just seemed like we had a disappointing loss and what we tried to do was fix it by ourselves in our own way.”


BYU looks to regain rhythm after back-to-back losses

With only nine games remaining in the regular schedule, and coming off a weekend loss against the University of San Diego that dropped the Cougars to 15-7 overall and 5-4 in West Coast Conference play, BYU is facing an uphill battle toward reaching the NCAA tournament. BYU head coach Dave Rose, whose team has lost back-to-back games for the first time this season, understands the predicament the Cougars are in.


BYU hoopsters at the turn; WCC midseason honors

Posted Jan 26th - 2:40pm

All ten West Coast Conference teams are making the turn in their conference schedules. Each team has played every other team once, as all have played nine of their 18 league games.

At the midway point, BYU stands in a three-way tie (with Pepperdine and Santa Clara) for third place with a 5-4 conference record—the same mark the Cougars had after nine league games last season, when the WCC slate was unbalanced (BYU had not faced every conference foe during the first half of the conference slate).

Last season, BYU rebounded from a sluggish WCC front half to post an 8-1 mark in the back half and boost its at-large hopes heading into the conference tournament in Las Vegas, where the Cougars won two games and punched their NCAA tournament ticket despite a loss to Gonzaga in the conference tournament finals.


Cougars look for all-around contributions to end road swing on Saturday

Posted Jan 22nd - 11:57pm by Jaren Wood

PROVO — The BYU men's basketball team got some key contributions this past weekend in a split on its road trip, and it will look for more when it closes out its road swing against the San Diego Toreros Saturday afternoon.

On Jan. 15, the Cougars started the trip with a 93-80 win at Pacific before coming up short, 82-77, two nights later at Saint Mary’s.


Resilient Cougars return to conference road

Posted Jan 22nd - 6:31pm by Greg Wrubell

Shorthanded during last week's split decision at Pacific and St. Mary's, the BYU basketball team returns to the West Coast Conference road this weekend, visiting San Diego for a Saturday matinee.

Head coach Dave Rose said on Thursday that guard Anson Winder is ready to play again after missing both games last week with a knee sprain, but big man Nate Austin has re-injured his hamstring and will not be ready to take on the Toreros.

"Today was probably the toughest day for (Winder), just recovering from a couple of hard practices," said Rose. "I anticipate that he'll feel good...and hopefully we'll have him for the game on Saturday."
