BYU posted a season-high 27 assists on 38 made baskets in a 95-62 win against Eastern New Mexico. Six different players recorded at least three assists against the Greyhounds. The 27 dimes are the most by the Cougars since recording the same number last season against San Francisco on Jan. 7, 2012. BYU had 29 assists against Buffalo last season on Dec. 20, 2011.
BYU defeated Utah despite shooting just 31.1 percent (19 of 61) from the field. The Cougars have shot 31.1 percent or worse 27 times since the 1960-61 season and won just three of those games. In addition to the Utah win, BYU defeated UC Santa Barbara 57-48 on Dec. 29, 1999 while shooting 29.6 percent (16 of 54) and Air Force 68-60 on Feb. 13, 1992 while shooting 30.4 percent (17 of 56).
Tyler Haws hit 10 of 10 from the free throw line vs. Weber State, his third game this season shooting 100 percent from the line while attempting at least 10 free throws. Haws has four such games in his career, tied for the most in BYU history with Jimmer Fredette. Haws is tied with Russell Larson (1993-94) and Roberts (1994-95) for most perfect days from the line (minimum of 10 attempts) in a season with three. Danny Ainge, Lee Cummard, Larson and Roberts are tied for second on the career list with three.
Haws the closer
Davies does it all
BYU head coach Dave Rose has led BYU to its most successful eight-year run since taking over in 2005. His career record of 193-58 ranks him second in BYU history in total victories and first in winning percentage (.769). Rose has been named conference coach of the year three times, district coach of the year twice and has guided the Cougars to four conference titles, six NCAA Tournament appearances and six 25-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 tournament game in the two seasons since, including a trip to the Sweet 16 in 2011.
