THE PORTOBELLO LODGE NO.226

The Cougars, however, were able to hang on in front of a sold out, juice up crowd of 3,500 that watched as one of the school's best players was honored before the game with a jersey ceremony.
Nor was it some psych job to get the relatively young and struggling Cougars ticked instead of timid.
But Matthew Dellavedova couldn't play this time.
"A hard fought guts win," he said. "It wasn't our best game by far, but it was good enough for tonight. And that's a big win."
A charging call against Kyle Collinsworth increased the foul discrepancy Saturday evening at Saint Mary's. It had BYU's head coach livid about the reasons for the whistles as much as the number itself.
Brad Waldow hit a couple free throws for a 25 11 cushion, and BYU responded with a relatively slow but steady 8 0 run Adidas Tracksuit In Green
didn't view it as cathartic.
After Austin's game changing tip, he hit a free throw with 1:26 left for a one point lead again.
The Cougars prevailed, 60 57, and Rose punched out the best summary of it all:
As often as BYU's gotten beat up on the road, there haven't really been a lot of close calls. Just the Portland triple overtime defeat late last month.
Rose didn't want the quick outburst, about seven minutes in BYU already trailing 13 6, and 6 1 on the foul count seen as some emotional ploy. He was simply steamed. He said himself he "hadn't done that in a long time," but also Adidas Leggings Hot
Austin said he was just trying to force Carter to turn around. The guard bumped right into the referee by the Gaels' bench. The ball went off a foot and into BYU's hands.
By the end of a wild time at McKeon Pavilion, Rose sat by that same area with friends, family and then his post game radio hosts. He never reached his breaking point. Neither did BYU.
that at least paid some hope to the idea of BYU doing more than just banging their heads on the wall by game's end.
Cougar men's basketball rallies for big win at Saint Mary's
The Gaels were hounded into 8 of 25 shooting Nike Air Vapormax All Colours in the second half and 14 full game turnovers, including a couple in the final minute that set up BYU's complete rally from as many as 14 points with 7:45 left in the first half.
"Arms got tangled up," Austin said. "I was just trying to keep it alive. I was just trying to get it on the glass so we could go get it again."
Other than that, there have been fairly wide margins at the end.
Personally, Austin was huge.
Carlino missed the front end of a 1 and 1, but then made a pair after getting another chance by forcing another Gaels turnover.
Too bad for SMC.
BYU was coming off the loss at Pacific on Thursday night that dropped BYU to 2 5 in West Coast Conference road games.
"Even though were were down by 14, it didn't feel like we were down that much," said one of the heroes, Nate Austin. "They hit some shots, but we had open shots. We just missed them. We knew if we just got some stops and some scores, our team would be right back in the game. It never felt like we were out of the game, personally."
"A good play by the ref, I guess," Austin said, cracking a Adidas Fleece Sweatpants
The big junior gave BYU its first lead since 2 0 with a hard tip back basket with 2:48 left. Matt Carlino missed a 3 pointer hard off the rim. Austin hit the ball hard, but through the hoop.
MORAGA, Calif. The slight smile on his face, when asked about his moment of utter dismay, was Dave Rose saying he didn't want any credit for the outburst.
A loss at Saint Mary's would've marked the third two game WCC trip that BYU would've been swept.
Rose started freshman backup center Luke Worthington in the second half to take some of the pressure off Eric Mika's foul ridden first half (three). He also brought Anson Winder into the opening five, as the Cougars trailed 35 25, for defensive purposes.
Then he helped to force a turnover on Kerry Carter, producing more chances at free throws.
But he sure did push a lot of other good buttons. BYU rallied from 12 points down after the start of the second half. It was still a 10 point margin with about 15 minutes left on the road at a place where BYU had lost convincingly the last two seasons.
He made up with the table, not to mention the scoreboard.
