Video: UConn Women Survive Challenge From BYU To Advance To Elite Eight ☆

BYU bounced out of NCAA Tournament with 87-68 loss to Oregon

Matt Carlino was heating up, open 3-point shots that rattled out in the first half were beginning to fall, and the mostly red-clad crowd of 17,749 at the Bradley Center was on its feet, urging the upset-minded BYU Cougars to complete their comeback from an early 14-point deficit. BYU was within three points, remarkably, given the way the Cougars were shooting and defending. Then...

Disrespected Cougars eager to show they belong

Even before their name was called on Selection Sunday as a better-than-anyone-expected No. 10 seed in the NCAA Tournament’s West Regional, the BYU Cougars were hearing and reading about their bid unworthiness from national college basketball experts. You don’t belong. You shouldn’t be dancing. You don’t pass the eye test. You can’t compete without your best overall...

BYU’s overtime win enough to land Cougars in NCAA tourney

San Francisco’s last shot bounced off the rim, and the BYU Cougars celebrated as if they had won something important Monday night. Unofficially, that’s true. For the moment, all their 79-77 overtime victory earned them was the right to meet Gonzaga for the West Coast Conference tournament title — only 19 hours later at the Orleans Arena. But when Selection Sunday arrives...

BYU Basketball: Live with it, Carlino fans–Collinsworth is more important

Aside from the unstoppable Tyler Haws, Kyle Collinsworth is the most important player on this BYU basketball squad. Hands down. Bar none. No doubt about it. Tonight’s game proved that. Yes, even more important that Matt Carlino. Carlino’s impressive run to finish the regular season (and some pressure from Twitter icon and Carlino idolizer @PostJimmer) had me thinking maybe...

BYU Basketball Stats: Defense, not free throws, Cougars’ real problem

BYU QB Hill runs past Young, Doman, and Carter; should Staley be worried?

That gave him 565 yards on the ground this season, and made him the most prolific quarterback, on the ground, in BYU history. That, however, may be just the beginning. Hill is on pace to do something much, much bigger this year. With 400 yards rushing...
