How to watch BYU Basketball vs. Saint Mary’s: Game time, TV schedule, streaming, game thread and more

How to watch BYU Basketball vs. Saint Mary’s: Game time, TV schedule, streaming, game thread and more

What could be argued as the biggest game so far this season is Thursday night for the Cougars... They’re in Moraga to play no. 16 Saint Mary’s. BYU will get its second chance of the season against Saint Mary’s in Moraga Thursday evening on ESPN2. This time, the Gaels are ranked no. 16. Needless to say, this is a huge opportunity for the Cougars to get a very nice resume win, and perhaps get back into the NCAA bubble conversation. It’s also a chance for the Cougs to get some revenge for that OT loss in Provo. Saint Mary’s comes into the game on a 14-game winning streak while the...

Thursday is a big day for the BYU hoops team, as the Cougars travel to Moraga to take on the Gaels in a big WCC showdown.

Fred Warner has been participating in Senior Bowl practices this week, and has caught the eye of many scouts. FanRagSports calls Warner a “riser” during this week’s practices, and...

BYU Basketball to take on no. 16 Saint Mary’s Thursday

A big game for BYU Basketball Thursday just got bigger. After losing to the Saint Mary’s Gaels in overtime in Provo a little less than a month ago, the BYU Cougars will have a chance for some sweet, sweet revenge in Moraga on Thursday.

Elijah Bryant is having a historically great season as he flirts with the 50/40/90 club

Could Eli put up a 50/40/90 season? With Eric Mika leaving BYU early to go to Italy and Nick Emery withdrawing from school, many wondered who would take the reins as BYU’s go-to scorer. We documented last week how dynamic the duo of Elijah Bryant and Yoeli Childs are, and Elijah’s offensive season is especially impressive. Here is a look into just how special Elijah’s performance has been. 50/40/90 Club What exactly does 50/40/90 mean? 50% FG percentage, 40% 3PFG, and 90% FT percentage.

T.J. Haws breaks out as BYU Basketball outlasts San Diego

T.J. Haws breaks out as BYU Basketball outlasts San Diego

T.J. Haws has been playing better on offense lately and his positive trend continued, while BYU used zone defense effectively to stifle the Toreros. TJ Haws matched his season high of 24 points on 10/14 shooting as the BYU Cougars (17-4, 6-2) withstood a tough test from San Diego, defeating the Toreros (13-7, 4-4) by a score of 74-58 in a game that was much closer than the final score indicates. Jahshire Hardnett finished with career highs in points (17) and rebounds (8) to help compensate for poor shooting performances from Yoeli Childs (14 points on 5/13 shooting) and Elijah Bryant (13...
