BYU Basketball’s last away game of the regular season will be Saturday night against the Saint Mary’s Gaels.
BYU, who had a bye on Thursday, sits at 19-8 on the season and 7-5 in conference play. The Cougars most recently played on Feb. 12 at Pepperdine, where they won, 91-85. BYU has now won two in a row, after losing four in a row.
Saint Mary’s is 21-6 overall, 9-3 in the WCC (second place). The Gaels cracked the top 25 last week, but fell out this week after a loss at Santa Clara (BYU knows something about that). SMC’s last game was Feb. 17 in Moraga against San Francisco. The Gaels came away victorious, 69-64. Saint Mary’s three conference losses came at BYU, Gonzaga, and Santa Clara.
BYU and SMC last met on Jan. 8 at the Marriott Center. The Cougars pulled out a win in that one, 52-43. How will it go in Moraga? ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives BYU just a 15.6 percent chance of winning.
