    Vanquish the Foe: Big second half lifts BYU to comfortable win over Utah


    After a tightly contested first half, BYU used a couple big spurts in the second half to beat Utah 74-59 at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

    The Utes had no answer for Yoeli Childs, as the junior finished with 31 points, 11 rebounds and this ridiculous dunk. Yoeli has scored 31 points in three straight games.

    TJ Haws had another nice game, finishing with 18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and a 4-point play that all but iced the game. Zac Seljaas didn't have his best shooting night, but he added 14 points, 6 rebounds, 5 steals and 3 assists.

    Block U: How to watch Utah take on BYU + Open Game Thread


    The Utah and BYU rivalry opens up another chapter this Saturday at noon in the Beehive Basketball Classic at Vivint Smart Home Arena in downtown Salt Lake. The is a bit unique for the rivalry game to be going down at a neutral site, especially outside of any kind of conference play. The young Utes are a week removed from a win against Tulsa, and have had a solid week of rest and practice to gear up for a tough remainder to their non-conference play. It will be interesting to see how well the youngsters battle in a rivalry game.

    Fansided: Safety First: How BYU Basketball can take down the Utes

    It's the rematch we've all been waiting for.

    Nick Emery vs. Larry Krystkowiak.

    The last time these two squared off a punch was thrown, words were exchanged, and Utah's coach tried to cancel the series, fearing that the diminutive Cougar guard endangered his entire team's safety.

    If Emery is going to channel his inner Bruce Lee against the Utes on Saturday, it'll take place at Vivint Smarthome arena.

    That's highly unlikely, so we'll just have to enjoy a rivalry matchup between the Cougars and Utes in the first game of this year's Beehive Classic.

    Neither team is off to the start they'd hoped for.

    Deseret News: With Nick Emery back in lineup, new-look BYU Cougars to face Utah Utes in Beehive Classic


    PROVO -- Coming off an emotional win Wednesday at home against Utah State, BYU faces what is expected to be another intense game against Utah.

    The Cougars and Utes collide Saturday (noon, MST, ESPNU) at Vivint Arena in the Beehive Classic.

    BYU's 95-80 victory against the Aggies marked the season debut of junior guard Nick Emery, who made an immediate impact by scoring 11 points and drilling three 3-pointers, dishing out two assists and grabbing two steals in 19 minutes off the bench.

    "It's a confidence boost for all of us," guard TJ Haws said of Emery's return.
