UVU Men’s Basketball Prepares For Crosstown Clash Against BYU

OREM, Utah-Friday evening, Utah Valley University men’s basketball will take the 4.9-mile trip southeast along University Parkway to the Marriott Center to battle crosstown rival BYU in the “UCCU Crosstown Clash.”

Utah Valley comes into this game with a 96-71 win over NCAA Division II Westminster, which counts as a regular season victory for the Wolverines.

The Cougars lead the all-time series against Utah Valley 3-1.

Redshirt junior Jake Toolson posted 22 points for the Wolverines in the win over the Griffins. The Wolverines seek their first win of the season against a fellow Division I opponent this season Friday as do the Cougars.

Despite giving Top 10 foe Nevada a good game for much of the evening Tuesday, the Cougars fell 86-70 to the vaunted Wolf Pack at Reno, Nev.

Leading the Cougars Tuesday was junior guard Jahshire Hardnett who had 17 points and junior Yoeli Childs who amassed his 21st career double-double, posting 16 points and 12 rebounds.
