“I love them when they are over and we won. They are tough,” Rose said of playing the in-state opponents. “But I hope everybody keeps playing. It’s really good for basketball in the state of Utah, and even non-BYU or non-Utah Valley fans were interested in this game. That’s the same way with the rest of the in-state games.

“I really wish Mark all the best. He had a great crowd here tonight. Hopefully he can get this team to the NCAA Tournament, so we can get every team in the state into that tournament," Rose said.

Utah transfer Kenneth Ogbe finished with nine points, three rebounds and two steals for the Wolverines, who host UT San Antonio at 7 p.m. MST Saturday.
