BYU Report: BYU vs. Fresno St.   January 14, 1993

BYU started its first WAC road trip of the season Thursday night in
Fresno. BYU and Fresno St. haven't played basketball since 1937 and
Fresno St. hasn't never beaten BYU.

BYU was trying to rebound after their home court loss to Utah last
week. Roger Reid changed his starting lineup for the first time all
year. Forwards Russell Larson and Kevin Nixon started the game in
place of Jared Miller and Shane Knight. Bringing Miller off the bench
worked very well as Miller responded by being the high scorer for the
Cougars. Reid said that he wanted to keep Miller from picking up fouls
in the early part of the game when the refs want to assert themselves
to set the tempo of the game. It worked. Miller, who often has been
sitting out large portions of the game with foul trouble, was foul free
in the first half of the game while playing 11 minutes in that half.

Fresno St. features a center name Hines who is 6'10" and close to
300lbs. Big boy. They also have a guard named Brian Santiago. If that
name sounds familiar, it should. Two Santiago brothers played for the
Cougars in years past. Brian graduated from Provo and played at Utah
Valley CC for Roger Reids brother, but opted to break with family
tradition and leave Utah County for California.

Fresno St. is coached by Gary Colson, former coach of the New Mexico
Lobos.

Santiago showed his range early by giving the Bulldogs a lead on a
3-pointer after a Sanderson layin had given BYU a 2-0 lead. Fresno
went on to take a 6 point lead at 12-6. BYU came back to claim a 24-19
lead and maintained that 5 point margin to end of the first half.
Halftime score was 38-33. Each team shot 48% in the first half and had
6 turnovers. Jared Miller lead the Cougar scorers with 11 first half
points.

Both teams started out slowly in the second half. BYU scored 3 points
in the first 3.5 minutes of the half - all on free throws. Fresno St.
didn't score at all in that first 3.5 minutes. After that, BYU just
dominated the boards. Fresno rarely got a second chance shot while BYU
was getting 3 or 4 second chance shots at times. With Miller, Larson,
and Durrant getting offensive rebounds and putting them back in, Reid
bombed away from outside. The combination was just too much for
Bulldogs and BYU streaked out to as much as a 17 point lead and won by
15 points at 72-57.

Trost was unusually quite in this game while the other big guys had a
field day getting rebounds and making the shots around the basket.
Randy Reid also had a big game scoring 16 points, two less than Jared
Miller. Sanderson has been in a real shooting slump lately and has
been spending more and more time on the bench as Cuff and Christensen
are getting more playing time.
