PROVO, Utah – Junior Matt Carlino made a career-high eight 3-pointers to lead the BYU men’s basketball team past Portland in an 89-72 home victory on Saturday.

 "This is a really big win for our guys and a good weekend," BYU basketball coach Dave Rose said. "I'm really happy and really pleased for our players. I think our players have had a really challenging last couple of weeks and the way they have responded to some tough situations and challenges is rewarding as a coach to watch them get together and get some big wins behind them. We'll take this momentum and hopefully it will help us in San Diego."

Highlights and Interviews here.

Carlino tied a career-high 30 points, hit 8 of 13 from beyond the arc and added three rebounds and four steals on the night. His eight 3-pointers are tied for second in BYU history with Mike Rose.

Anson Winder finished with 19 points on 7 of 8 shooting, while Tyler Haws finished with 15 points and five assists. Kyle Collinsworth added seven points, 11 rebounds and seven assists in the win.

Haws gave BYU its first points on a jumper and connected on a 3-pointer that tied it at 5-5 and ignited a 10-2 run that gave BYU a 12-7 lead. During the run, Winder drove to the basket twice with Luke Worthington converting a three-point play in his first start of the season. After a Portland basket, Haws scored four-straight points, Eric Mika had a putback dunk and Haws made another jumper to end an 8-0 run that put BYU ahead 20-9.

With 9:02 remaining in the half, Collinsworth grabbed his sixth rebound to go coast to coast for a layup and a 24-13 lead. Carlino went on a 9-0 run in 1:28 after draining three from beyond the arc to extend the lead to 33-16 at the 6:59 mark. With less than a minute left, Frank Bartley IV grabbed the steal to assist Carlino on his fourth 3-pointer of the game and send it into halftime up 46-33.

Haws led all players with 13 points at the half, while Carlino added 12 points of his own. Winder finished with 10 points and Collinsworth grabbed seven rebounds to go along with two points at the break.

Haws put up the first Cougar points to open the second half to maintain their 13-point lead. The two sides exchanged baskets for the next four minutes before the Cougars went on a 15-3 run that included three more 3-pointers by Carlino and a dunk on a fastbreak to push the lead to a game-high lead of 25 at 73-48.

Carlino’s steal and layup made it a 24-point game with less than 10 minutes remaining. At the 4:53 mark, Haws’ fifth feed went to Mika for the two-hand flush and the 82-64 lead. Carlino made his eighth 3-pointer with 3:30 remaining and followed it up with a layup on the next possession.

BYU (20-10, 11-5 WCC) forced the Pilots (15-13, 7-9 WCC) to 13 turnovers that led to 18 BYU points and dominated in the paint 38-18. With the win over Portland, the Cougars are undefeated at home in conference at 9-0 and 14-1 overall. BYU has won its last 11 home games this season.

BYU will hit the road for its last conference game against San Diego on Saturday at 1 p.m. PST. The game will be televised live on ROOT Sports and broadcast on the Cougar IMG Sports Network on KSL Newsradio 102.7 FM/1160 AM.

 By the numbers

1.7 Matt Carlino’s career steals average, second all-time in BYU history. His 153 career steals are sixth all-time and the 64 he totaled in 2012-13 as a sophomore are the fourth most in team history. His 53 this season at eight all-time.
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.
4 The number of players in the NCAA ranked in the top 150 in both rebounding and assists: BYU’s Kyle Collinsworth (66th in assists, 108th in rebounding), UCLA’s Kyle Anderson (6th in assists, T-49th in rebounding), Saint Joseph’s Halil Kanacevic (T-96th in assists and 54th in rebounding) and Vermont’s Brian Voelkel (26th in assists and 74th in rebounding). Rankings as of 2/20/14.
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. Carlino is averaging 4.7 assists per game this season.
5 The number of times a player in the West Coast Conference has scored 35 points or more in a single game since BYU joined the league in 2011. All five instances have been achieved by Tyler Haws: 42 vs. Virginia Tech on 12/29/12, 37 vs. Washington on 3/19/13, 35 vs. Pepperdine on 1/9/14, 48 at Portland on 1/23/14 and 38 vs. Pacific on 1/30/14. The last time a WCC player not named Tyler Haws scored 35 or more came on March 25, 2011 when Santa Clara’s Kevin Foster scored 35 against Southern Methodist.
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.
42 The number of consecutive games Tyler Haws has scored in double figures, a career-best streak and tied for the 6th-best in BYU history with Jimmer Fredette.
46 The number of 20-point games Haws has in his career at BYU, fifth all-time in program history. He had 25 20-point games in 2012-13, fourth all-time in a single season. He has 17 this season, tied for 11th most in BYU history.
46 Matt Carlino became the 46th BYU player to score 1,000 career points when he reached the milestone against Santa Clara on Jan. 19, 2014, his 81st career game. He currently has 1,112 career points and is 16 from tying Steve Schreiner for 36th all-time.
88.2 Tyler Haws’ career free-throw percentage, first all-time in BYU history. He has hit 480 of 544 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.
228 Dave Rose (2005 to present) is second all-time in BYU basketball history with 228 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. Rose and Watts are the only BYU coaches to coach at least 300 career games.
1,815 The number of points Tyler Haws has scored in his career, good for 8th all-time and 9 from tying Jeff Chatman for 7th. Haws holds the BYU record for most points scored during freshman and sophomore seasons combined.

Kyle of all trades

In his first season since serving a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Russia, Kyle Collinsworth is averaging 14.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game. He is proving to be one of the most versatile players in the WCC, especially in league games. Through 16 WCC games (as of 2/20/14), he ranks in the top 10 in the four of the five major statistical categories: 10th in scoring, 5th in rebounding, 4th in assists and 1st in steals. He is also top 12 in five other categories: 6th in FG percentage, 12th in assist/turnover ratio, 3rd in offensive rebounds, 10th in defensive rebounds and 7th in minutes played.

We talkin’ about a half, not a (full) game, not a (full) game, not a (full) game. We talkin’ about a half!

In 2002, NBA star Allen Iverson didn’t want to talk about practice. With BYU’s leading scorer Tyler Haws, we don’t want to talk about a full game, but just a half. In his career, Haws has scored 20 or more in a half nine times, including seven this season.

30 the old fashioned way

Tyler Haws scored 31 points against Loyola Marymount while hitting 9 of 19 from the field and 13 of 14 from the free throw line. He joined Brandon Davies (33 vs. Weber State on Dec. 15, 2012) as the only other player to score 30-plus points without hitting a three since Keena Young scored 34 vs. UNLV on March 10, 2007. The last BYU wing/guard to score 30 without hitting a three was Travis Hansen on Jan. 5, 2002 when he netted 30 against Pepperdine. Prior to Hansen, the last guard to score 30-plus was Marty Haws, Tyler’s father, on Jan. 4, 1990 vs. Hawaii.

The mythical 5x3 and the 4x3+2

A 5x3 is when a player records at least three in each of the major statistical categories (points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks). Only one BYU player – Rafael Araujo – has recorded a 5x3 since blocks and steals were first recorded beginning with the 1977-78 season. He did so with 24 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 3 steals vs. Wyoming on Jan. 19, 2004. Kyle Collinsworth has joined 11 other BYU players who have fallen one stat shy of a 5x3 and recorded a 4x3+2 (at least three in four of the categories plus two in the other). He had 11 points, 13 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 blocks and 5 steals at Pepperdine and 20 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals vs. LMU. Danny Ainge (2), Lee Cummard (6), Brandon Davies (3) and Greg Kite (2) are the only others to record more than one 4x3+2.

Fantastic freshman

Big man Eric Mika is having one of the top freshman campaigns in BYU history. He is currently ranked in the top 10 in several categories in the BYU record book, including: scoring (8th), rebounding (6th), field goal percentage (2nd), offensive rebounds (2nd), double-figure scoring games (5th) and consecutive games scoring in double figures (2nd).
