Could we see a BYU-Utah basketball matchup... In the NIT?

A Holy War Matchup in the NIT is suddenly becoming a realer possibility Don’t get too excited, but a BYU-Utah matchup is already being projected in the NIT. According to a site that does NIT bracketology (yes, that’s a thing) BYU and Utah are projected to meet in a 3-6 matchup in Salt Lake. We know BYU has had a less than ideal year in basketball, and Utah has been experiencing a similar down year for its basketball program. After a loss to 4-win Oregon State Sunday night, the NIT is looking like a likely postseason destination for the Utes as well. BYU is on the NIT bubble right now,...

BYU Basketball struggles in loss to Saint Mary’s

BYU Basketball struggles in loss to Saint Mary’s

What if I told you that Jock Landale would score a season low 7 points for Saint Mary’s, play just 14 minutes due to foul trouble, and BYU would still lose by double figures at home?

Eric Mika led the way for the BYU with 18 points, while Yoeli Childs added 13 and T.J. Haws chipped in 11. Saint Mary’s turned to their perimeter shooting with Jock Landale on the bench in foul trouble, as Calvin Hermanson and Evan Fitzner combined for 32 points and 7 made three...

2017 BYU Baseball preview: Pitching Staff

The Cougars will score a lot of runs this season. Will they be able to keep their opponents off the scoreboard? Everything in baseball ultimately comes down to pitching.

BYU Basketball Recap: Pepperdine dominates BYU in Malibu, 99-83

BYU Basketball Recap: Pepperdine dominates BYU in Malibu, 99-83

Eric Mika finally started to get some good looks, but fouled out late in the game along with Yoeli Childs which effectively ended the game for BYU. This loss followed the familiar...
