SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Coach Dave Rose knew all week that his BYU team would need to knock down perimeter shots against a sizable Utah team that can clog the paint defensively. He got exactly that as the Cougars shot 50 percent from 3-point range.

The program struck recruiting gold when it landed the major pieces from the 2012-13 Lone Peak High School national championship team — four-star recruits Nick Emery, Eric Mika and T.J. Haws. But then the challenges of recruiting to BYU kicked in and all three went on Mormon church missions at different times.
