In the second half, BYU’s perimeter shots began to sink, which allowed them to roar back and stun TCU at home on Saturday night. This allowed BYU to come back from a significant hole into the second half.

With a tie for fourth place in the Big 12 with a record of 9-7 in conference play thus far this season, the Cougars have improved their overall record to 21-8.

Beginning the second half of their game against TCU, BYU was trailing 46-29 and was still trailing 62-55 with 9:22 remaining in the game when they started to get hot.

After the Horned Frogs had been within eight points of the Cougars, the Cougars went on a run of twenty-two points to take a 75-64 lead with four minutes and thirty-four seconds remaining in the game.

During the game, BYU shot 52.5% from the field, including nine of 28 from three-point range, and they restricted TCU to a shooting percentage of 40.8%. After coming off the bench, Fousseyni Traore led the Cougars in scoring with 21 points and grabbing seven rebounds in the victory.

Through the first 16 games of the season, the Cougars have scored 82.7 points per game, which places them sixteenth in the country in terms of scoring offense. In addition to grabbing 39.9 boards per game, which places them in 21st place, BYU is also dishing out 18.9 assists every night, which places them in third place in the nation.

This year, the Cougars have allowed 69.4 points per game, which places them 104th in the nation in terms of defensive efficiency.

This indicates that the Cougars are quite good on the defensive end of the court. As a result of his 13.9 points per game, Jaxson Robinson is the leading scorer for the Cougars.

Spencer Johnson (10.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 3.3 assists), Trevin Knell (11.4 points), Noah Waterman (10.1 points, 5.8 rebounds), Richie Saunders (9.3 points, four rebounds), and Foussenyi Traore (10.5 points, 4.9 rebounds) are all players that contribute significantly to the team’s secondary scoring punch.

In their most recent match, which took place on Saturday, Iowa State defeated UCF away from home, so claiming their third consecutive victory and their seventh in the recent eight games. The Cyclones finished the season with a record of 23-6 overall during the season and a record of 12-4 in the Big 12 Conference.

This places them in second place in the conference, one game behind Houston for the top spot. Iowa State was trailing by four early on in their game against UCF, but gained nine points in the first half and seven points at the halftime break.

With 5 minutes and 8 seconds left in the game, the Cyclones were trailing the Knights by a score of 50-49. However, they went on to win the game by outscoring the Knights by a score of 11-2.

The Iowa State Cornhuskers had a field goal percentage of 45.7%, including five of twenty-one from three-point range, and they forced 22 turnovers to offset their own 17 giveaways. With 16 points and six rebounds, Tre King led the Cyclones to victory in their game.

The Cyclones are a very good offensive club, as seen by the fact that they score 76.6 points per game on average, which places them 91st in the season. On average, Iowa State gets 34.5 rebounds per game, which places them 235th in the nation, and they send out 16.2 assists per game, which places them 32nd overall in the nation.

When it comes to scoring defense, the Cyclones are among the best in the country, ranking sixth in the nation. They allow 61.9 points per game, which is a very high number. With 11.5 points and 3.2 rebounds per game this season, Milan Momcilovic is one of four players who have scored in double digits through the course of the season.

Among the secondary scoring possibilities, Keshon Gilbert (13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists), Tamin Lipsey (12.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 2.8 steals), Tre King (9.4 points, five rebounds), and Curtis Jones (10.3 points) are also excellent choices.

It is imperative that all of the Cyclones’ players, including Robert Jones, Omaha Biliew, Hason Ward, Demarion Watson, Jackson Paveletzke, and Kayden Fish, perform at their highest level. Since the beginning of the season, Iowa State has a shooting percentage of 46.8% from the field, which places them 69th in the nation.

Every night, the Cyclones make an average of 6.6 three-pointers and shoot 35% from beyond the arc at the same time. During the course of the season, Iowa State had a free throw shooting percentage of 69.3 percent, which is below the national average.

Best Bet for this Game

There are a couple of high-octane offensive units who are going to be competing against us, and they scored a lot of points in the first game of the season. As of Tuesday, home teams have won 66.4% of the time in conference games during this season.

This indicates that they have had a lot of success in these games. When playing TCU, BYU had a terrible start from the perimeter, but they were able to knock down jumpers in the second half, which allowed them to pile up additional points and eliminate the deficit.

They might not have as much luck when they play Iowa State, which is one of the defensive teams that has been the most stingy so far this season. During the current season, BYU has only a record of 3-6 when playing away from home, but Iowa State has won all 17 of their games played at home. Assume that the Cyclones will take care of business at home in order to be successful and get the victory.
