Live from the KSL 5 TV studios, BYU head coach Dave Rose started his weekly show with a recap of last week's games. BYU fell 74-68 to San Diego on the road and lost at home to San Francisco 99-87.

"I really believe our guys gave a great effort last week - we got stung by teams who were ready for us. We had beaten both of them the first time around but they were ready. I thought we were prepared for both games and had a good game plan, but we just didn't execute."

When asked where she would like to go if she had a time machine, junior distance runner Sarah Yingling said she would make her way back to the 50's. 

"Seriously," she said. "I just think I would love it. It's my style in everything: music, clothes and just life. I would even go to the Regency Period, like the time frame of Pride and Prejudice. I think it would be fun to try out that life style and those dresses."
