The BYU men’s basketball team will welcome Seattle Pacific to the Marriott Center Saturday night in what will serve as a final tune-up before regular season action begins.
BYU opened up exhibition play on Nov. 1, when Tyler Haws’ 29 points in 25 minutes paced the Cougars to a 82-64 victory over the Colorado School of Mines.
The Falcons of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference are set to meet the Cougars after having posted a 26-6 record in 2013–2014, a mark that qualified them for a berth in the NCAA Division II Tournament.
Adding intrigue to the matchup is the possible return of All-WCC guard and Cougar team captain Kyle Collinsworth, whom team doctors cleared for play on Nov. 6. Collinsworth hasn’t seen game action since tearing the ACL in his right knee during last March’s WCC Tournament championship game.
Tipoff for Saturday’s game is set for 7 p.m. in the Marriott Center and can be seen broadcasted live on BYUtv.
