BYU basketball: Cougars win emotional Senior Day game against Portland without Hartsock, 76-66

"We have a resilient group," said Portland coach Eric Reveno. "Early on when they got easy buckets and went up 16-4, I thought they were doing things that were preventable, such as when they were outrunning us on the floor. But we put a stop to that and did well at times."

Portland fell to 6-23 and 3-13 on the season.

Now it's on to the WCC Tournament, and the Cougars don't want to see Hartsock on the bench again.

"I feel for Noah because he'll always remember his last home game as a game where he didn't get to play," Rose said. "But his team got a win. … My heart will always kind of hurt for Noah because he meant so much to us and he didn't get to play in this game. Hopefully we'll get him back."
