BRIGHAM YOUNG RUMORS

BYU basketball: Rose says Austin could miss rest of season

Provo • If Saturday's 77-74 loss to San Diego proved anything, it is that BYU sorely misses 6-foot-11 forward Nate Austin, who has been sidelined since Dec. 10 with a hamstring injury. The Cougars did get some offensive contributions from Luke Worthington and Corbin Kaufusi, but were torched inside repeatedly by USD big men who hadn't done much in previous games. Austin practiced...

BYU basketball: Cougars' season at a crossroads after another close road loss

Provo • After Saturday's stunning 77-74 loss to a mediocre San Diego team in front of an evenly split crowd of 2,463 BYU and USD fans, Cougars coach Dave Rose spent more time than usual talking to his disconsolate basketball team in the locker room at Jenny Craig Pavilion. Rose's message, as relayed by star guard Tyler Haws, was that the Cougars, who are now 5-4 in the West Coast...

BYU basketball: Flagrant foul reverses momentum, proves costly for Cougars

San Diego • BYU didn’t shoot the ball well enough from long range and didn’t defend the interior well enough in the second half to win on Saturday at San Diego, falling 77-74 to the Toreros at Jenny Craig Pavilion. Those were the key points BYU coach Dave Rose made after the loss that probably ends the Cougars’ hopes for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. There was also...

BYU basketball: Y. returns Winder; Austin still out

Provo • Coach Dave Rose had good news and bad news for BYU basketball fans after the Cougars wrapped up basketball practice on Thursday.

The bad news is that senior...

BYU football: Offensive line depth a recruiting priority

Four of the five starters — junior left tackle Ryker Mathews, sophomore left guard Kyle Johnson, freshman center Tejan Koroma and freshman right guard Tuni Kanuch will be back. BYU will lose only right tackle De’Ondre...
