PROVO, Utah – BYU basketball coach Dave Rose earned his 200th career win as BYU defeated San Diego 74-57 in the Marriot Center on Saturday.

“There are so many people responsible for the wins," Rose said. "I think it’s interesting that one guy gets all the credit for that because I’ve had so many great coaches and the players have been terrific and committed. I care way more about the players who have been here, the teams and the chemistry than about the wins.”

Rose's career record is now 200-59. His .772 career winning percentage is currently fourth among active NCAA Division I coaches.

"After the game today we celebrated a little bit in the locker room," said senior Brandon Davies. "It’s a big deal for coach [200 career wins] and we’re all proud of him.”

With the win, Rose joined Stan Watts as the only other coach in BYU men’s basketball history to compile 200-career victories. BYU outshot San Diego (11-9, 4-1 WCC) 45.2% to 36.7% from the field in the win and improves its record to 15-5 overall and 5-1 in the West Coast Conference.

Video Highlights and Interviews

“I’m really happy for our players," Rose said. "It was a hard fought game. We were good from the start and we had to overcome quite a few challenges: we had foul trouble and we didn’t shoot the ball particularly well from the perimeter. But I thought we guarded well, I thought we rebounded well and I thought we got a lot of help from a lot of different guys.”

Tyler Haws led all scorers with 25 points and was a perfect 9 of 9 from the free-throw line. Brandon Davies sunk 17 points for the Cougars along with seven rebounds and two steals. Matt Carlino and Brock Zylstra also finished in double-digits with 11 and 10, respectively, and Nate Austin had a game-high nine rebounds.

To start the game, San Diego knocked down a 3-point shot to get on the board early. The Toreros hit their second 3-pointer at 18:22 and then sunk two shots at the charity stripe to grab a five-point lead (8-3) over BYU.

With 15 minutes remaining in the half, Josh Sharp laid the ball in to grab BYU’s first lead at 11-10 and prompt a 6-2 run for the Cougars.

Anson Winder was strong off the bench and hit BYU’s first 3-pointer of the night for a 20-12 lead at the 11-minute mark. A minute later, Davies sunk his eighth point to give BYU the 22-14 lead and solidify a 17-4 run for the Cougars.

At the 10-minute mark, Winder drove to the basket and earned himself a 3-point play to put the Cougars up by their first double-digit lead of the night at 27-15. BYU continued to add to its lead during the next five minutes and outscored San Diego 12-5 in the process.

At 4:38, BYU grabbed two offensive rebounds on one possession and San Diego’s frustration led to a technical foul. Haws hit both technical foul shots and then hit another two free throws in response to a San Diego personal foul to give BYU the 39-20 lead with only four minutes remaining in the first.

San Diego ended its three-minute scoring draught at 2:23 with back-to-back 3-pointers to cut the score to 39-26. San Diego’s Johnny Dee hit another 3-pointer from the top of the arc with 1:33 left to give his team a 9-2 run heading into the one-minute mark.

However, San Diego’s coach was called for the team’s second technical foul on BYU’s next possession and Haws took advantage to put BYU up 43-29. Haws scored the last 13 points of the half for BYU and finished the half with 15 points to lead all scorers.

BYU headed into the locker room at halftime sporting a 43-31 lead over San Diego.

The Toreros quickly cut BYU’s lead to nine a minute into the second half, but Davies answered to put the Cougars back up by 11. Both teams continued to exchange points until Zylstra found Haws on a fast break to put BYU back up by 13 at 49-36 at the 17:20 mark.

A Carlino 3-pointer and a Haws jumper gave BYU a 54-38 lead heading into the first timeout of the second half. At the 11:16 mark, Craig Cusick hit his first shot of the night to extend BYU to a 58-42 lead.

Zylstra hit a 3-pointer with 9:32 left to join Davies and Haws in double-digit scoring for the Cougars.

BYU maintained a 15-point lead deep into the second half and forced San Diego to call a timeout with 5:14 remaining after Carlino knocked down a jumper to put BYU up 67-50. With 3:26 remaining, Carlino grabbed a 19-point lead for BYU after stealing the ball and taking it in for the easy layup. The shot also gave Carlino his sixth-straight game scoring in double digits with 11 on the night.   

In the end, BYU took the 74-57 win to hand San Diego its first conference loss of the season.

BYU will play next at No. 8 Gonzaga on Thursday, Jan. 24, at 8 p.m. PST. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN2, KSL Newsradio 102.7 FM and 1160 AM and BYURadio/Sirius XM 143.

Player and team notes

  • Dave Rose is one win away from 200 career victories. Stan Watts is the only coach in BYU history with 200-plus wins. Watts won his 200th game during his 12th season at the helm on Feb. 2, 1961 at New Mexico. It was his 329th career game (Watts’ career record was 371-254 in 23 seasons). Rose has coached 258 games and is in his eighth season.
  • Tyler Haws has scored 20-plus points in six-consecutive games, tied for his longest such streak this season. He opened the year with six-straight 20-point games and has 13 20-point games this season.
  • Matt Carlino has scored in double figures in five-straight games (all WCC games). During that stretch he is averaging 17.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 2.8 steals while shooting .469 from the field and .462 from three. His assist to turnover ratio during that time is 2.4 to 1.
  • BYU has shot .500 or better in consecutive games and in four-straight halves. At Santa Clara the Cougars shot .531 in the first half, .542 in the second and .536 for the game. Against Saint Mary’s BYU hit .536 in the first half, .522 in the second and .529 for the game.
  • In the second half against Pepperdine, BYU out-scored the Waves 46-16 to earn the 76-51 victory. The 30-point scoring margin was the biggest in a half this season for the Cougars and the 16 points are the fewest allowed in a half this season by BYU.
  • BYU has completed three comebacks after trailing at the half this season. The Cougars trailed Utah and San Francisco by nine at the half and won 61-58 and 80-76. BYU trailed Pepperdine by five at the half and came back to win 76-51.
  • BYU played its best defensive game of the season against LMU, limiting the Lions to 51 points and 30.8 percent shooting — both season bests for the Cougars. The first half was BYU’s best defensive half as the Cougars limited LMU to 20 points and 23.5 percent shooting. BYU’s 57 second half points are the most scored by the Cougars in a half all season, one more than the 56 scored against Virginia Tech in the first half.
  • 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.
