It’s week 53 of Cougars on Cougars! Jess and Mary start the show out by announcing the winner of their anniversary giveaway. Thanks to all those who participated and shared favorite happenings on the show over the past year. Keep an eye out for more giveaways soon.

It was a good week for BYU Basketball — with a 99-70 win over Pepperdine followed by a road win (yay) over Pacific, 62-47. Jess and Mary Coach from the Couch and talk about what went well and what didn’t go so well against Pacific Saturday. Topics include free throw shooting, slow starts for various guards, defense and more. What did the Cougars impress you with last week?

After Couch Coaching, Cougs on Cougs statistician Ken O’Kelley joins the ladies on set for some real talk. There have certainly been some bumps in the road for this young Cougar team but a question on a lot of peoples’ minds? Is this squad improving, or not?

Ken answers that question as well as many others. Where are the Cougars seeing most improvement on the season? Does BYU have more of a shot at the NCAA tourney than you might think? Don’t miss these enlightening facts and trends from #HireKen.

Finally, we bring it all home with Talk of the Town. One of our favorite kickers got engaged (as well as a couple at a BYU basketball game). Jamaal wore something unique at the Reese’s Senior Bowl, proving that he is certainly one of a kind, Dave Rose and Mark Pope served up Subway sandwiches together plus many other goings on in the Cougar social media-sphere.
