BYU buried in 3s
SAN DIEGO Brigham Young didn't know what hit it at the start of the second half Thursday night.
Leading just 35-30 at halftime, the Bearcats came out and hit five 3-point shots in the first eight minutes.
We could have played our best game and still not won tonight, BYU coach Steve Cleveland said. They got in a zone and shot the lights out.
Mekeli Wesley, who scored a game-high 25 for BYU, said the Cougars simply couldn't recover.
It was an overwhelming feeling when they made some huge shots, from being down five or seven, then being down 16 that quickly, said Wesley.
NOT CLOSELY GUARDED SECRET: It's no secret why opposing teams would focus on shutting down UC guards Steve Logan and Kenny Satterfield, the team's two leading scorers.
UC is 18-2 in games when Satterfield and Logan both scored in double figures. The two losses: Marquette at home (66-63 OT) and Charlotte in the Conference USA Tournament final (80-72).
The Bearcats are 3-4 when Satterfield was held to fewer than 10 points and 3-3 when Logan scored in single digits.
MISSION MAN: Cleveland is the only basketball coach in Brigham Young history to have gone on a church mission when he was a college student.
Cleveland, who attended UC Irvine, went to England from 1971-73.
It's a pretty disciplined regimen, he said. You learn to forget about yourself; I guess that's the No.1 thing. You're serving other people. There's a real spiritual side to it, but there's also a real side of growing up and being independent and living away from home. I certainly grew up a great deal throughout the process.
