Noon or Earlier

Saturday’s matchup with No. 6/7 Baylor is scheduled for noon, a relatively early tip time for a college basketball game. In fact, under Dave Rose — whose first season was 2005-06 — BYU has played just seven games at noon or earlier.

The Cougars are 8-0 in those games including 6-0 on neutral floors and 2-0 on the road. Last season BYU defeated No. 6/4 San Diego State on the road and last Saturday the Cougars downed Utah at the Huntsman Center. This will be the first noon or earlier game in the Marriott Center under Rose. What does all this mean? Probably nothing. But it’s a fun fact.
