THREE KEYS TO A BYU VICTORY
- Avoid a Double-Digit Deficit
The last two trips to Gersten Pavilion in Los Angeles have seen BYU face double-digit deficits against the Lions before ultimately coming back to get victories in both. Cougar Cagers, save yourself the hassle and avoid the double-digit deficit.
2. Utilize Payton Dastrup
I’m on the Dastrup bandwagon. Give this guy at least 20 minutes and he will produce for this team. With the lack of depth that is currently on Rose’s bench, there’s no reason not to give Dastrup a valuable role on this team.
3. Don’t let Steven Haney get cookin’
Feels like LMU guard/forward Steven Haney has been playing for the Lions the past 10 years. He’s had a lot of success against BYU, especially in Gersten Pavilion. James Batemon is the Lions star player, but when Haney starts knocking down his shots, the Lions could possibly pull off the upset.
