About a year ago, Charlie Sheen talked a lot about ‘winning.’ While using the term winning has become a cultural phenomenon and a famous hashtag on Twitter, winning is something BYU basketball and Dave Rose know something about. Here are some of the #winning facts under Rose, BYU’s head coach since 2005.

  • 6-consecutive 20-win seasons
  • 5-consecutive 25-win seasons
  • 2-consecutive 30-win seasons
  • 114 wins from 2007 to 2011 — most wins in a four-year stretch in program history
  • From the 2008-09 season to now, BYU has won 101 games and Charles Abouo has played in every victory and every game during that stretch
  • Abouo, Jimmer Fredette (112), Jackson Emery (106) and Jonathan Tavernari (103) are the four Cougars to have played in 100 victories
  • Noah Hartsock has played in 96 victories (he missed six games in 2008-09 with an ankle sprain) and is poised to become the next member of the 100-win club
  • BYU advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2011 for the first time since 1981
  • Under Rose, BYU has won four conference titles and finished second his other two years as head coach
  • Rose and Roger Reid are the only BYU coaches to win 20-plus games in each of their first six seasons — Rose has the opportunity to become to first to win 20-plus games in each of his first seven seasons
  • BYU basketball has 10 25-win seasons in its 110-year history and Rose has been the head coach of five of those teams
  • Rose has the only two 30-win seasons in program history
  • BYU has a winning percentage of 77.9 under Rose

There are probably more facts that could be added to the list, but it’s clear that while Sheen talked a lot about #winning last year, BYU basketball has been doing it for a while.
