Live from the KSL 5 TV studios, head coach Dave Rose started his show with a full recap of last week's games. BYU hosted Saint Mary's in a 70-69 buzzer-beater loss and also San Diego last Saturday in a 74-57 victory. The Cougars are now 5-1 in West Coast Conference action.

Against the Gaels, Rose highlighted Tyler Haws's performance. He finished with 23 points to lead the team. 

"Tyler's a sophomore and a guy who's having one of the best sophomore years we've seen at BYU in a long time. The guys realy know they can rely on him. They know that down the stretch he's a guy we can go to."

Against the Toreros, Rose highlighted the team's overall performance. Every healthy player was able to see minutes and contribute to the game. Four players finished with double-figure points, led by Tyler Haws's 25. 

"We had a lot of guys scoring and a lot of guys moving the ball. Matt (Carlino) did a great job of controlling the game and that's huge when he can play like that - it gives everyone else confidence and we perform better overall."

Later on in the show, Coach Rose talked about the team's strategy for slowing down and controlling an opposing team's point guard. Rose pointed out that the Cougars have played some great point guards this season and, to keep them in check, the team has to use specific strategy.

To finish the show, Coach Rose previewed BYU's upcoming games against Gonzaga and Portland, and discussed how the rest of the West Coast Conference teams are shaping up.
