BYUtv will air a special encore of the USU vs. BYU women’s basketball played in Provo Tuesday night at 7 p.m., tonight. 

The rebroadcast will replace BYUtv's scheduled live men's basketball game between BYU and the Aggies that was supposed to be played tonight at the Marriott Center.

Athletics officials from BYU and Utah State determined that tonight's men's basketball game between the two universities will be postponed due to the serious medical condition of USU student-athlete Danny Berger that occurred during practice on Tuesday.

Boston College – Game Day

After breakfast in the hotel, the women’s team gathered to watch film on tonight’s opponent Boston College, and then it was off to shoot around at the Conte Forum, on the BC campus. On the way to our practice, we took a short detour so we could see the Boston Temple. We stopped for just a few minutes to take a couple of pictures. At the game we had a small, but loud cheering section. Unfortunately, we came up short at the end, losing to Boston College 62-56.

Wednesday – a day in between games

We arrived in Newton, MA via bus late Tuesday night after leaving from Hanover, NH with the win over Dartmouth. Wednesday morning was spent practicing at Harvard. Once the girls showered we met with Dr. Roger Porter, who is on the faculty at Harvard and is a BYU alumni. He gave us a wonderful tour of the campus where we learned a lot about the school's history. He took us to Dunster House where he is the House Master. We enjoyed a delicious lunch there in the eating area that is reminiscent of the Dining Hall in the Harry Potter books and movies.

In its first road game of the season, the BYU women’s basketball team sneaked out with a one-point, 58-57 win over Dartmouth. It was a rainy, cold day in Hanover as the team prepared for its first road test of the year. Game day started with breakfast, watching film on Dartmouth and a one-hour shoot around at Leede Arena. The pregame meal was at one of the team’s favorite places, Panera.

Hanover and Dartmouth

The team arrived in Boston Sunday evening. Our bus driver took us for a short drive to downtown Boston where everyone got to experience a wide variety of food choices. After dinner, it was back on the bus for about a 90-minute drive to Hanover, New Hampshire.

Monday began with a morning practice at Dartmouth. After a quick shower, lunch was in downtown Hanover at “Everything But Anchovies” – a local favorite for sandwiches, wraps and salads.

The No. 10 seed BYU women’s basketball team began its run in the 2012 NCAA Tournament Thursday.

The Cougars along with the band and Cougarettes departed from the Provo Airport, landing in Chicago that evening where two buses awaited their arrival for the short drive to the team hotel just a few miles away. Sandwiches and drinks were passed out to everyone.

On approach to the Chicago O’Hare airport they were able to see a beautiful view of the windy city and their team hotel. A lightning storm in the distance lit the sky as they landed.
