  • The Cougars (9-3, 8-2 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) face off against the 49ers (8-4, 5-4 MPSF) Friday and Saturday night at 7 p.m. MST in the Smith Fieldhouse.
  • The two squads split the series a season ago, with each team winning on its home court. LBSU won the last matchup 3-1 in March of 2014.
  • BYU holds a 27-21 edge in the overall series, including a 15-7 home record against the 49ers.
