Who? The Cougars of Brigham Young University.
When do they play in the first round? They play Louisville on Saturday, March 21 at 4 p.m. ET.
What? It started with a pair of fifty-cent cougar cubs in 1924, then became Cosmo, short for cosmopolitan, and yes, I do find it amusing that a Mormon school's mascot shares its name with a cocktail.
Where? Provo, Utah, adjacent to Orem.
Why? They won the West Coast conference tournament.
How? Lexi Eaton had 22 points to lead BYU over San Francisco 76-65. Morgan Bailey added 20 points and eight rebounds for a Cougar team that hit 11 threes and shot over 50% from the field.
Surprise? Predicted to finish second in the conference, they finished fifth, four games behind Gonzaga.
Record: 23-9 (12-6 West Coast)
Good wins: Butler in Hawai'i.
Bad losses: Cal State Northridge.
Who's running this show? Jeff Judkins, since 2001. He was a Celtics draft pick.
BYU, this PDF thing is not on.
Junior guard Lexi Eaton fills the scoring column for the Cougars at 20.7 points a night. I'm not sure what I find more interesting about her, the 40% on threes, or the 209 free throws attempted. Senior forward Morgan Bailey can be relied on for a double-double day in and day out, at 17.2 points and 10.6 rebounds. Together they make up more than half of BYU's scoring.
