PROVO -- Combo attack by Cougar guards Mike Hall and Mike Rose led the way in a BYU victory over the Calgary Dinos, 86-52, Friday night in the Marriott Center. The Cougars dominated in every aspect of the game to conclude its exhibition play at 2-0.

The Cougars found their groove early in the first half, showcased by a Terry Nashif dish-off the backboard to fellow teammate Hall for the dunk. BYU shot 50 percent better from beyond the arc this week than the Cougars last first half 0-for-8 shooting performance against BYU-Hawaii. Jared Jensen delivered the games first two points with a pair of free throws to take the lead and the Cougars never looked back. The undersized Dinos struggled from tip-off to stay close to the Cougars as BYU led 51-23 at the half.

Four Cougars scored in double figures with Rose coming off the bench to lead all Cougar scores with 14 points, including two three-pointers. Hall sparked the Cougars early against the Dinos, scoring all of his 13 points in the first half. Jensen led the Cougars' post-play with 10 points and Nashif also finished with 10 points and a game-high nine assists.

BYU's dominance was displayed as the Cougars topped the Dinos in field goal percentage, rebounding, assists, blocks and steals. The Cougars finished the game shooting 50 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from the three point arc.

All but one Cougar player got a piece of the action in tonight's exhibition win. Point Guard Austin Ainge sat out due to an ankle injury in last week's exhibition game. BYU head coach Steve Cleveland commented on his team's all-around effort.

"If exhibition games are about giving everyone an opportunity to play, then this was a successful exhibition game for our team," said Cleveland.

Calgary was led by center Robert Wright who carried the Dinos with a game-high 15 points and team-high nine rebounds and three assists.

The Cougars' will match up in their regular-season opener on Nov. 22nd against No. 3 North Carolina in Hawaii while BYU's home-opener is set for Nov. 27th at 7 p.m. against the California Bears.
