Jan 30, 2013 - Posted by Whitney Craft Jordan on January 30, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Live from Legends Grille, assistant coach Mark Pope filled in for head coach Dave Rose on his weekly coach's show. Coach Pope started the show talking about what's coming up for BYU and how they're looking right now.

"We're looking forward to the second half of our conference play. It's nice that we've seen all these teams already - last year there were some teams we didn't see until the second half. The guys are excited to play more games. The beautiful thing about basketball and the season is we can write our own story - we can still grow and prepare for what's coming based on what experiences we've had already."

Coach Pope also gave a recap of BYU's last two games against Gonzaga and Portland, highlighting the team's ability to stay composed on the road and get a win after a tough loss. 

Later on in the show, coach Pope talked about Brandon Davies, Brock Zylstra and Matt Carlino's performances through West Coast Conference action, how they've improved and ways they can still improve. 

Ian Harward joined the show later to talk about how he's shaping up this season after battling back injury and to answer some fan questions.

Coach Pope also finished up the show answering questions from fans.
