Happy Thanksgiving! Celebrate with some Cougar basketball Thursday night, why don’t you? They’ll be playing their second of three games this week, this one against the Privateers of New Orleans.
BYU opened its season Wed. night at the Marriott Center in Provo against the DII Westminster Griffins from up the road in Salt Lake. BYU made quite the impressive showing, and won that game, 108-59. It was a well-rounded performance from the Cougs, showing off plenty of depth in the rotation, even without Matt Haarms (who will hopefully be available soon).
New Orleans has not played a game yet and will open its season against BYU. The Privateers hail from the Southland Conference and had a 9-21 overall record last season.
Once again, it’ll be families of coaches and players only at the Marriott Center, so here’s how you can watch:
- Thurs. Nov. 26, 7:00 p.m. MT
- Marriott Center, Provo, UT
TV Broadcast Team:
- Dave McCann (play-by-play)
- Blaine Fowler (analyst)
