BYU Game Notes

  • WASHINGTON STATE (NOV. 18). BYU and Washington State are meeting for the 13th time on the court and first time on a neutral floor. BYU won last year’s matchup 71-53 in Provo. Washington is 3-0 on the season, with wins over LMU, San Francisco and Prairie View A&M.
  • TROY (NOV. 19). The BYU Cougars and Troy Trojans are matching up for the first time in basketball. The Trojans are 2-2, most recently coming off back-to-back losses to UCLA and San Francisco.
  • LAST GAME. BYU played its best game to date but wasn’t able to complete the upset against No. 16 Oklahoma, eventually falling 77-66. A one-point game with three minutes to go, a few turnovers at the end proved too much for the Cougars to overcome.
  • NEW ERA. BYU has a new head coach for the first time in 21 seasons after the retirement of Jeff Judkins. Judkins, the winningest coach in school history (455 wins) paved the way for first-time head coach Amber Whiting, a Cougar alum to take the rains in 2022-23. BYU is will also need to replace the WCC Player of the Year (Shaylee Gonzales), another All-WCC First Team selection (Paisley Harding) and an All-WCC Honorable Mention (Tegan Graham). The Cougars are also replacing point guard Maria Albiero who was tied with Paisley Harding for the most played games in school history.
  • WCC REGULAR-SEASON CHAMPS: BYU won its fifth regular-season title under head coach Jeff Judkins with a 15-1 record in league play. The last time the program won back-to-back regular-seasons was during 05-06 and 06-07.
  • RETURNERS. BYU returns one of the nations’ top rebounders, All-WCC First Team selection Lauren Gustin in 2022-23. Gustin was a finalist for the Katrina McClain Award last year, averaging a double-double at 10.7 points and 11.5 rebounds per game. The Cougars also return one of the squads deadliest 3-point shooters in Nani Falatea who hit 50 percent of her treys last season (21 of 42) to set a school record.
