Cougars drop conference opener at LMU


BYU vs. LMU Notes and Quotes

BYU vs. LMU Box Score

LOS ANGELES – The BYU men’s basketball team fell 87-76 to the Loyola Marymount Lions to open conference play on Saturday.

"It was pretty obvious what happened," BYU basketball coach Dave Rose said. "They came out and spanked us early. We had a hard time making shots. They did a good job defensively. They were on fire and we missed some assignments defensively and didn't challenge like we should. Before we knew it the score was spread pretty good and the energy that was being played with was one-sided."

Kyle Collinsworth led the team with 18 points, eight rebounds and three assists, while Eric Mika ended with 17 points and seven rebounds. Matt Carlino finished with 13 points and Tyler Haws added 11 points and six rebounds of his own.

Frank Bartley IV finished with six points, seven rebounds and four assists off the bench.

BYU drops to an 8-6 overall record and 0-1 in West Coast Conference play, while LMU improves to 9-4 overall and 1-0 in conference. BYU kept the Lions to a 42 shooting percentage and outrebounded them 42-39.

The Cougars got off to a slow start, trailing 21-7 as LMU went on a 17-2 run. Mika put up the first point for BYU with a free throw followed by a baseline jumper by Carlino two minutes in. Haws ended LMU’s run with a drive to the rim at the 12:49 mark to put up his first points. Collinsworth recorded a block with 8:25 left in the first half, which was followed by a layup by Bartley in transition.

With under five minutes to play, Collinsworth’s steal led to his own layup in transition to chip away LMU’s lead 35-24. Haws made a 3-pointer with 2:10 remaining in the half to cut the deficit to 42-31. After LMU went on a 6-0 run, Collinsworth answered with a dunk for a 48-33 halftime deficit.

Nate Austin started the second half scoring down low followed by Collinsworth’s three-point play to cut the deficit 54-38. The Lions grabbed a 21-point lead at the 14:05 mark, but was answered with four consecutive points by Anson Winder on the fast break and Mika in the post to make it a 16-point game. 

With 10:10 remaining in the game, Collinsworth went down the lane in transition for a layup to keep it 67-51. Haws’ free throws cut LMU’s lead to 12 points, but BYU was never able to make it all the way back. 

"Everybody said how difficult our schedule was in the preseason," Rose said. "The bottom line is we told the guys what's really hard is what we're about to jump into here. It's way more difficult than the games we just played. These league games everybody scouts you, everybody knows you. They know your tendencies. They know how you want to play and they try to make you play a different way."

The Cougars stay on the road to play Pepperdine on Monday at 7 p.m. PST. The game will be televised on TWC and Root Sports and broadcast on the Cougar IMG Sports Network on KSL Newsradio 102.7 FM/1160 AM. A live video stream will be available on

 By the numbers

1.7 Matt Carlino’s career steals average, second all-time in BYU history. His 125 career steals are 11th all-time and the 64 he totaled in 2012-13 as a sophomore are the fourth most in team history.
2 The number of players in BYU history to reach 1,000 career points as a sophomore. Danny Ainge was the first to do so and had 1,130 points in 57 games by the end of his sophomore season (1978-79). Sophomore Tyler Haws joined Ainge when he reached the 1,000 career point mark at Saint Mary’s on Feb. 21, 2013.
3 The number of players with double-doubles against North Texas: Matt Carlino (10 rebounds, 11 assists), Eric Mika (17 points, 11 rebounds), Nate Austin (10 points, 13 rebounds). It was the first time since March 15, 1984, that BYU had three players with double-doubles in a single game.
4.7 Matt Carlino’s career assist average, first all-time in BYU history.  As a freshman in 2011-12, he averaged 4.6 assists and in 2012-13, he averaged 4.8. His 171 assists last season are the third most in team history. Carlino is averaging 5.0 assists per game this season and tied his career high with 11 against North Texas.
6 The number of career games for Tyler Haws shooting 100 percent from the free throw line with a minimum of 10 attempts, a BYU record. He hit 10 of 10 on Feb. 20, 2010 at Wyoming, 12 of 12 vs. Cal State Northridge on Nov. 24, 2012, 10 of 10 vs. Utah on Dec. 8, 2012, 10 of 10 at Weber State on Dec. 15, 2012, 14 of 14 at Loyola Marymount on March 2, 2013 and 11 of 11 vs. Wichita State on Nov. 26, 2013.
8 With a bid to the 2013 NIT, Dave Rose and the Cougars reached the postseason for a BYU record eighth-straight season. In his first year as head coach, Rose and the Cougars went to the 2006 NIT. That was followed by six-straight trips to the NCAA Tournament and last season’s NIT bid. BYU has also won 20-plus games in each of Rose’s eight seasons.
26 The number of consecutive games Tyler Haws has scored in double figures, a career-best streak.
37 The number of 20-point games Haws has in his career at BYU, sixth all-time in team history. He had 25 20-point games in 2012-13, fourth all-time in a single season.
83.3 BYU’s 3-point percentage against Texas (10 of 12), a BYU single-game record (minimum 10 3-pointers attempted). Matt Carlino hit 5 of 7, Frank Bartley IV hit 3 of 3 and Tyler Haws hit 2 of 2. 
88.5 Tyler Haws’ career free-throw percentage, first all-time in BYU history. He has hit 371 of 419 from the line in his career.
90.0 Eric Mika’s shooting percentage against Mount St. Mary’s, tied for the BYU freshman record for field goal percentage in a game (minimum 10 attempts). The freshman from Alpine, Utah, hit 9 of 10 from the field and scored 20 points. He shares the record with Fred Roberts, who also hit 9 of 10 vs. Utah State on Dec. 6, 1978.
112 BYU’s point total against Stanford, a 112-103 road win. The point total is the most by a BYU team under Dave Rose and the most since Feb. 25, 1993, when the Cougars scored 128 at home against Sacramento State. It also marked a BYU record for points scored against a Pac-12 team.
217 Dave Rose (2005 to present) is second all-time in BYU basketball history with 217 career victories, behind only the great Stan Watts, who coached the Cougars to 371 wins from 1949 to 1972 and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1986.
1,432 The number of points Tyler Haws has scored in his career, good for 16th all-time and 62 from tying Joe Nelson for 15th. Haws holds the BYU record for most points scored during freshman and sophomore seasons combined. With 929 career points, Matt Carlino is on pace to become the next BYU player to reach 1,000 career points.

Dave Rose

BYU head coach Dave Rose has led BYU to one of the most successful runs in program history since taking over in 2005. His career record of 217-71 ranks him second in BYU history in total victories and first in winning percentage (.753). Rose has been named conference coach of the year three times, district coach of the year twice, led the Cougars to four conference titles, six NCAA Tournament appearances, two NIT appearances, six 25-win seasons and eight 20-win seasons. In 2010, he led BYU to its first NCAA Tournament win in 17 years and the Cougars have also won at least one postseason game in the three seasons since, including a spot in the Sweet 16 in 2011 and a trip to the NIT semifinals in 2013.

Return of Kyle Collinsworth

The 2013-14 season marks the return of sophomore guard Kyle Collinsworth, who spent the last two years serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Russia. As a freshman in 2010-11 he averaged 5.8 points and 5.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals while shooting .481 from the field. Collinsworth started 27 games on a BYU team that won a team record 32 games and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Collinsworth is averaging 12.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.2 steals this season.

Record streaks

The Cougars will be looking to keep several program-record streaks intact during 2013-14. Coming into the season,  Dave Rose has led the Cougars to eight-straight 20-win seasons and eight-straight postseason appearances, eight-straight seasons with 10-plus conference victories and four-straight seasons with a postseason victory.
