Cougars at ESA

Dec 03, 2011 - Posted by Kyle Chilton at 10:52 pm | Permalink

With Saturday’s 79-65 win over Oregon, the Cougars are now 7-2 at EnergySolutions Arena in regular season games. BYU went 3-2 in what was then the Delta Center in the WAC Tournament in 1993 and 1994.

The first game (2003) was perhaps the most memorable as the Cougars defeated an Oklahoma State team that advanced to the 2004 NCAA Final Four. Rafael Araujo had a dominant performance as he posted a monster double-double with 32 points and 17 rebounds.

Last season Jimmer Fredette gave Cougar fans a performance to remember, scoring 33 points in an 87-65 win over Arizona, one of his many 30-point games on his way to leading the nation in scoring and capturing national player of the year honors.

Noah Hartsock added a memorable performance to BYU’s history at EnergySolutions Arena. Against Oregon, the senior forward from Bartlesville, Okla., scored a career-best 23 points to go with 12 rebounds, two assists and four blocks.

Day Six from Hawaii

Dec 03, 2011 - Posted by Norma Collett at 3:45 pm | Permalink

Day Six – North Shore Oahu (Friday, Dec. 2)

Friday was an off day for BYU as the Cougars prepare to take on Syracuse in the final game of the Hukilau Invitational on Saturday. Syracuse had its six-game winning streak snapped in an 80-74 loss to Arizona on Friday. The loss was the Orange’s (6-1) first of the season, while Arizona improved to (6-1).

Meanwhile, the Cougs began the day with a practice at BYU-Hawaii before heading to the leeward side of Oahu to visit the Pearl Harbor Memorial. One of the more popular attractions in Hawaii, Pearl Harbor included a number of exhibits, displays and memorials, honoring the 1,177 victims of the Japanese attack on the United States on Dec. 7, 1941, as well as those who served our country in World War II. It was a time for everyone to reflect on the blessings of freedom we enjoy in America.

Later, the group headed to the famous International Market Place in Honolulu for some shopping, followed by dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, always a team favorite.

Day Five from Laie, Hawaii

Day Five – Game Day (Thursday, Dec. 1)

Day five in Hawaii began with a shoot-around at BYU-Hawaii as the Cougars prepared for a big game with Pac 12 foe Arizona. After a traditional island-style lunch from Hukilau Café and some rest, BYU returned to the Cannon Activities Center for game two of the Hukilau Invitational. Led by sophomore Kim Parker‘s career-high 25 points, the Cougars downed the Wildcats 82-73.

The crowd was pretty much all BYU as a bus load of BYU faithful in Hawaii for the football game on Saturday, came to support the women's team.

With the win coach Jeff Judkins is now 12-7 against Pac 12 teams and BYU improved to 6-2 on the season.

Other notables for the Cougars included a double-double from Kristen Riley (15 points, 12 rebounds) and double digit scoring from Jennifer Hamson (12) and Haley Steed (10). Parker, Steed and Riley all had six assists as well. With the loss Arizona falls to 5-1 on the year. The Wildcats were athletic and very quick especially at the guard position, but the Cougars countered with physical play led by Hamson who finished with four blocks and seven rebounds.

The Cougars look to continue their undefeated history in the Hukilau Invitational as they take on Syracuse Saturday in the finals. The game is set to tipoff at 1 p.m. HST.

To celebrate the big win many of the coaches and the student-athletes attended the dinner and night show at the Polinesian Cultral Center on Thursday evening.

Day Four From Hukilau Invitational

Dec 01, 2011 - Posted by Norma Collett at 11:31 am | Updated: December 1, 2011 11:35 am | Permalink

Day Four (Wednesday, Nov. 30)


Wednesday was an off day for the women’s basketball team which meant an early morning practice at the “old gym” on the BYU-Hawaii campus.

After practice and a quick change at the hotel, the Cougars headed to Haleiwa on the northwest side of Oahu for a short paddleboard and surf lesson. Then it was off to Kua’ Aina for burgers and fries as well as Matsumotos Grocery Store for its world famous shaved ice.

The team wrapped up day four in Hawaii with some film work and final preparations for its game versus Arizona on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 3:00 HT (6:00 pm MT). The game will be broadcast live on BYU Radio. Robbie Bullough will have the play-by-play. Click Here for additional radio information.
