The second half was when BYU’s outside shots started to go in. This helped them come back and surprise TCU at home on Saturday night. This helped BYU come back from being down a lot in the first half.

The Cougars have added 21 wins to their record, putting them in a tie for fourth place in the Big 12 with a 9-7 record in conference play so far this season.

BYU was behind 46–29 at the start of the second half of their game against TCU. They were still behind 62–55 with 9:22 left in the game when they started to heat up.

There were four minutes and thirty-four seconds left in the game. The Cougars went on a 22-point run after the Horned Frogs got within eight points of them. They now lead 75–64.

They held TCU to a 40.8% shooting rate during the game. BYU made 52.5% of their shots from the field, including nine of 28 three-point shots. Fousseyni Traore scored 21 points and grabbed seven rebounds in the win for the Cougars after coming off the bench.

The Cougars have scored 82.7 points per game through 16 games so far this season. This ranks them sixteenth in the country in terms of scoring attack. BYU is in third place in the country for both assists and boards per game. They are giving out 18.9 assists per night, which puts them in 21st place overall.

The Cougars have given up 69.4 points per game this season, which ranks them 104th in the country for defensive performance.

In other words, this shows that the Cougars are pretty good at defense. Because he scores 13.9 points per game, Jaxson Robinson is the Cougars’ top scorer.

Players like Spencer Johnson (10.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 3.3 assists), Trevin Knell (11.4 points), Noah Waterman (10.1 points, 5.8 rebounds), Richie Saunders (9.3 points, 4 rebounds), and Foussenyi Traore (10.5 points, 4.9 rebounds) all help the team score points in other ways.

They are Trey Stewart, Dallin Hall, Dawson Baker, Atiki Ally Atiki, and Aly Khalifa. They are all very important to boss Mark Pope. Trey Stewart is also very important. The number of shots made by BYU is 46.6% from the field.

Iowa State Cyclones Betting Prediction

Now we have the BYU vs Iowa State Betting prediction for the Cyclones.

Iowa State beat UCF away from home in their most recent game, which happened on Saturday. It was their third straight win and their seventh in the last eight games. This was the end of the Cyclones’ season. They had a record of 23-6 overall and 12-4 in the Big 12 Conference.

They are now in second place in the conference, one game behind Houston, who is in first place. In the beginning of their game against UCF, Iowa State was behind by four points. But they scored nine points in the first half and seven points at halftime.

In the last 5 minutes and 8 seconds of the game, the Knights were ahead 50–49 as to who was ahead. They beat the Knights by a score of 11-2, though, and won the game.

The Iowa State Cornhuskers made 45.7% of their field goals, including 52% of their attempts from three-point range. They also forced 22 mistakes and gave the ball away 17 times. Tre King led the Cyclones to win in their game with 16 points and 6 rebounds.

Based on their average score of 76.6 points per game, the Cyclones are a very good scoring team. This ranks them 91st in the league. Iowa State gets 34.5 boards per game, which ranks them 235th in the country. They also give out 16.2 assists per game, which ranks them 32nd in the country.

The Cyclones are sixth in the country in terms of scoring defense, making them one of the best in the country. It’s very bad that they give up 61.9 points per game. Last season, Milan Momcilovic scored 11.5 points and grabbed 3.2 rebounds per game. He is one of only four players to score in double figures this season.

Other players who can score include Keshon Gilbert (13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists), Tamin Lipsey (12.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 2.8 steals), Tre King (9.4 points, 5 rebounds), and Curtis Jones (10.3 points).

Robert Jones, Omaha Biliew, Hason Ward, Demarion Watson, Jackson Paveletzke, and Kayden Fish are just a few of the Cyclones players who need to play at their best. Iowa State has been hitting 46.8% from the field since the start of the season. This ranks them 69th in the country.

The Cyclones make an average of 6.6 three-pointers every night and shoot 35% from a long way out. Over the course of the season, Iowa State made 69.3 percent of their free throws, which is less than the national average.

Best Bet for this Game

Two very strong attacking teams are going to be going up against us. They scored a lot of points in the first game of the season. Thus far this season, home teams have won 66.4% of league games.

In other words, this means they have done very well in these games. When they played TCU, BYU had a bad start from the outside, but in the second half, they were able to make jump shots that helped them score more points and erase the gap.

They might not have as much luck when they play Iowa State. So far this season, Iowa State has had one of the best defenses. Iowa State has won all 17 of their games played at home this season, while BYU has only won 3 of their 6 games played away from home. You should think that the Cyclones will take care of business at home so that they can win.
