BYU Basketball will return home to the Marriott Center Thursday night to face the San Francisco Dons after a successful road stretch last week featuring comeback wins against San Diego and LMU.
The Cougars have made a great showing in WCC play and sit at second place at 10-3. San Francisco is not too far behind at 8-4. If the Cougars falter down the stretch, the Dons could definitely catch them. BYU is 18-10 overall while San Francisco is 20-6.
The Cougars and Dons last met on Jan. 19 at War Memorial Gym and the Dons handled the Cougars comfortably, 82-63. BYU’s only other losses in conference came at the hands of Saint Mary’s and Gonzaga.
BYU comes into the second match with San Francisco on a five-game winning streak while San Francisco has won their last three in a row. However, San Francisco did go to overtime with bottom-dwelling Portland Saturday. The final score of that game was 68-63 in favor of the Dons. BYU’s Saturday game was at LMU and the Cougars showed some impressive grit in coming back after being down most of the game to win, 70-62.
