While reveling in the all of the glory and hype around BYU basketball's successful season, many have posed the question of which home game was bigger for the program: the win over Gonzaga on Feb. 22 or the 2011 win over No. 4 San Diego State?
BYU defeated LMU 57-42 at the Marriot Center on Saturday, Feb. 29, on senior day. Coach Judkins gave a shout-out to the seniors and all the contributions that they made not only in today’s win against LMU, but in the success of the Cougars all season long.
The 2019-20 BYU men's basketball season has been a whirlwind, ranging from injuries and suspensions to beating top teams in the nation, while the women's campaign gained momentum as the season grew older.
The hype for the No. 23 BYU vs. No. 2 Gonzaga matchup could be seen all around Provo in the days leading up to the game itself. A stretch known as "tent city" emerged outside the Marriott Center doors on the night of Wednesday, Feb. 19, as students set-up camp in hopes to get the best seats when the arena doors opened four days later on Saturday. The trail of tents stretched from the Marriott Center doors to BYU's administration building with thousands of students waiting to get their seats.
There will always be questions of what could have been for the BYU men’s volleyball team this season, but what will never be questioned is the love this team had for each other. They were and still are family, a band of brothers.
