BYU President Jeffrey R. Holland is asking BYU fans to extend the welcome mat to visiting basketball teams this week.

There was some concern about the behavior of Wyoming fans at last week's BYU-Wyoming game in Laramie."The Wyoming game Thursday and Colorado State game Saturday are important athletic contests winding up our regular season of play, and they deserve the best we have to offer in terms of sportsmanship, hospitality and wholesome competition," Holland said.

"Emotions run high at games - everyone knows that - but it is absolutely essential for the preservation of all that is good in sports that our enthusiasm be channeled into positive, productive support of the teams on the floor," he added.
