The momentum continued on into the weekend with an even bigger winning margin, as the Cougs beat out Portland 78-65.

Women’s Basketball

San Diego just couldn’t keep up with the Cougars this week. Women’s Basketball had battled against the Toreros, with games on Saturday afternoon and Monday night. Saturday’s game saw the Cougs traveling to San Diego, taking the win with a score of 73-64. With San Diego and BYU postponing a game back in December, the team went head-to-head after a day of rest, at the Marriott Center. San Diego couldn’t quite bring the heat, and were held to less points than Saturday’s game. BYU ended the night with a win, with the scoreboard finishing at 70-48. The Cougs are now ranked No.16 in the nation, and prepare to face Santa Clara and San Francisco this week. Want to stay up-to-date?
