#23 - Nov. 13, 2009: BYU 70, Bradley 60 Next » 3 of 25 « Prev
Editor's note: Typically, a season-opening game in college basketball doesn't hold much significance in a long year. But this game meant more, as it was Dave Rose's first game, and win, since being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer during the summer of 2009.

BYU coach Dave Rose, not necessarily by choice, got to test most of his roster Friday night in the Cougars' 70-60 win over the Bradley Braves.

And when early foul trouble caused Rose to go to his bench earlier than planned, and use a bigger variety of lineups than he planned, he discovered the Cougars are just as deep as he had hoped.

"It's a long season and a long process, but it's actually good to get a new group of guys in a game like that and watch them battle and compete and come out on top," Rose said.
