BYU Basketball with Dave Rose 12-10-13

Posted Dec 11th - 9:09am by Jason Ludlow, Contributor

PROVO &mdash: Defense doesn't only win championships; it also wins regular season games -- especially road ones against undefeated and nationally-ranked opponents.

Defensive struggles have been the thorn in the Cougars' paws this season and were the theme of Tuesday night's installment of the weekly "BYU Basketball with Dave Rose" radio show at Malawi's Pizza at the Shops at the Riverwoods in Provo.

BYU's high-paced offense ranks 8th nationally at 89.9 points per game, but it's 80.4 points allowed ranks 318th nationally out of 352 teams. Last Saturday's game against No. 21 UMass was no improvement. The Cougars lost 105-96 -- the most points surrendered in a BYU defeat since losing to Arizona State 106-95 in 1993.

BYU focuses on defense with Prairie View, Utah on deck

Posted Dec 10th - 6:17pm by Greg Wrubell

BYU opened the week as one of the top scoring teams in the country; the Cougars' 89.9 points-per-game average ranked 8th among all Division I teams, while their speedy pace of play ranked second nationally in terms of tempo.

On the defensive end, BYU's 80.4 points per game allowed ranks 318th nationally, and while the name of the game is simply to score more points than the opponent, the Cougars are giving added attention to team defense with Prairie View A&M and Utah on this week's slate.


BYU to face Washington in Fight Hunger Bowl

Posted Dec 8th - 7:27pm by Greg Wrubell

SAN FRANCISCO — The BYU Cougars will meet the Washington Huskies in the 2013 Fight Hunger Bowl game, it was announced today by Bowl Executive Director and co-founder Gary Cavalli.

The two teams, both sporting 8-4 season records, will square off on Friday, December 27 at AT&T Park in downtown San Francisco. The game is scheduled for a 6:30 p.m. PST/9:30 p.m. EST kickoff and will be shown to a national audience by ESPN. This year's kickoff marks a return to prime time for the first time since Nevada played Boston College in the 2010 postseason.

"What an exciting opportunity for the Cougars to travel to the great city of San Francisco for the Fight Hunger Bowl and to play Washington from the Pac-12," said BYU athletics director Tom Holmoe. "Our coaches, players and fans will love the holiday season in San Francisco. It's great to be able to add to the wonderful bowl tradition that is long associated with BYU football."

BYU Basketball with Dave Rose 12-4-13

Posted Dec 4th - 9:59pm by Sean Walker, Contributor

PROVO — The BYU men's basketball team went 7-2 while playing four of its first nine games away from the Marriott Center, but head coach Dave Rose believes the early road trips are entirely manageable by this year's team.

"We knew this schedule would be difficult. But I felt like we had a team that could handle it, with three experienced guards," Rose said at the inaugural coach's show at Malawi's Pizza on Tuesday. "We need the young guys to perform."

The returning veterans of juniors Matt Carlino and Tyler Haws, along with recently returned missionary Kyle Collinsworth, have buoyed the Cougars as they try to put together a resume that merits an NCAA Tournament bid by March. The trio has averaged more than 53 points in the first month of the season, and freshman center Eric Mika is close behind with 13.8 points per game.

Cougars 'Mean' business in return to Marriott Center

Posted Dec 2nd - 8:13pm by Greg Wrubell

Following a 2-1 week that included wins over previously-undefeated Texas and previously-undefeated Utah State, and a loss to still-unbeaten (and nationally-ranked) Wichita State, the BYU hoopsters are back on the home hardwoods Tuesday night, meeting up with the 5-3 Mean Green from North Texas.

After his team's Monday practice at the Marriott Center, BYU head coach Dave Rose said he expects "a real fast-paced game" with a team that like BYU, ranks among the highest-tempo teams in the country. The Cougars are 2nd in Pomeroy adjusted tempo stats, while North Texas is 44th.

"These guys are really quick," Rose told reporters in his post-practice media session. "They play fast, and their guards are really good dribble-penetrators."

Cougars preparing to face a tough Aggie team at ESA

Posted Nov 29th - 7:33pm by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — The BYU Cougars practiced at the Marriott Center Friday afternoon before busing to Salt Lake City for Saturday's matchup with the Utah State Aggies at Energy Solutions Arena.

BYU has had quite a bit of success playing on the home court of the NBA's Utah Jazz. The Cougars have won seven-straight games played at ESA; which include victories over Utah State, San Francisco, Hawaii, Arizona, Oregon, Montana and Virginia Tech.

"We had a great game up there a few years ago with Utah State at Energy Solutions Arena," Coach Rose said. "With the experience of their team, starting four seniors, and the youth of our group and where we've been and the fact that we're coming off a loss, it should be a really exciting game. We're looking forward to it."

BYU Football with Bronco Mendenhall 11-27-13

Posted Nov 28th - 7:30am by Jason Ludlow, Contributor

PROVO — After 12 quick weeks, Wednesday night marked the final "BYU Football with Coach Mendenhall" radio show of the 2013 season.

It was a season that began full of promise and opportunity -- returning stars, a new up-tempo offense, and the proclaimed toughest schedule in program history -- and as with any year, 2013 had its share of both ups and downs.

There were difficult loses at Virginia and against Utah (again), blow-out victories over Texas and Boise State, bowl qualification for the ninth-straight season, and a five-game winning streak rolling into the month of November.

BYU, Utah State extend football series

Posted Nov 27th - 11:34am by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — BYU and Utah State announced on Wednesday that the two schools have reached an agreement to add two additional games to its current football series.

The additional games will be played on Sept. 29, 2017 in Logan and in Provo on Oct. 5, 2018 both games are on Friday night.

In the official release, BYU AD Tom Holmoe expressed his gratitude to the Aggies and his excitement to continue the series.

BYU prepares for 'unique matchup' with Nevada

Posted Nov 26th - 8:14pm by Sean Walker, Contributor

PROVO — BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall has had plenty of time to look at his team's loss at Notre Dame last week, and he liked what he saw of the Cougars' effort against the Fighting Irish in South Bend, Ind.

"I thought the team tried hard, and fell short through execution," Mendenhall said after practice Tuesday. "A few critical plays, a slow start defensively and the blocked kick at the end; I'm disappointed that we didn't make the necessary plays we needed to make."

One player who didn't disappoint was wide receiver JD Falslev. The senior team captain returned after missing two weeks with a broken hand, grabbing a touchdown pass from quarterback Taysom Hill in the 23-13 loss. The moment proved more special as a number of Falslev's family members made the trek to South Bend for the game.

Van Noy and the Cougars are looking forward to Nevada

Posted Nov 25th - 9:18pm by Sean Walker, Contributor

PROVO — Kyle Van Noy came to BYU from Reno after a star-studded senior year at McQueen High School that saw his Lancers win the Class 4A state title in Nevada's Mackay Stadium.

After four years in Provo, the senior returns to the scene of the crime -- but the main difference isn't the football-playing Van Noy.

"I can't even get the words to say how different I am," Van Noy said after practice Monday evening. "I'm just a different person, and that's the most important thing to me; not only on the field, but off the field as well. I have a totally different perspective on life. That's a lot better, for sure."
