The 2019–20 BYU Cougars men's basketball team represents Brigham Young University in the 2019–20 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. It is head coach Mark Pope's 1st season as BYU's head coach and the Cougars ninth season as members of the West Coast Conference.[1] The Cougars play their home games at the Marriott Center in Provo, Utah.

Previous season[edit]

The Cougars finished the 2018–19 season 19–13, 11–5 in West Coast Conference play to finish tied for second place with Saint Mary's.[2] As the No. 3 seed in the WCC Tournament, they lost to San Diego in the quarterfinals.[3] They were not invited to play in the NCAA or NIT tournament and declined to participate in any other postseason tournament.[4] Shortly after the season ended, longtime head coach Dave Rose announced his retirement.[5] Utah Valley head coach Mark Pope, who previously spent four seasons as an assistant at BYU under Rose, was hired in April to be his replacement.[6] Later in April, Pope announced that he had selected Chris Burgess and Cody Fueger from Utah Valley and Nick Robinson from Southern Utah as his assistant coaches.[7] Average home game attendance for the 16 games played at the Marriott Center for the 2018-19 season was 11,958. This was the second highest attendance in the West behind Arizona and ranked 27th nationwide.[8]

Preseason Polls and Rankings[edit]

BYU was selected to finish third in the West Coast Conference in the Preseason Men's Basketball Coaches Poll behind Gonzaga and Saint Mary's. Yoeli Childs and TJ Haws were named to the 2019-2020 All-WCC Pre-season Men's Basketball Team.[31] For the second straight year, Yoeli Childs was among 20 college basketball forwards named to the Karl Malone watch list.[32] The Karl Malone Award selects the nation's top power forward in NCAA college basketball.[33] In early November, before the season began, Yoeli was also named to the list of 50 players to watch for the 2020 Citizen Naismith Trophy Men's Player of the Year as well as the Preseason Top 50 Watch List for The John R. Wooden Award.[34][35]

Preseason Injuries and Suspensions[edit]

Several players were injured or were subject to suspensions during the offseason that will affect their ability to play during the regular season. Yoeli Childs was suspended by the NCAA for paperwork errors in the NBA draft exploration process that will cause him to miss the first nine games of the regular season.[36] In August, Zac Seljaas broke his foot during a game in Italy and was estimated to be out until November or December 2019.[37] His recovery progressed rapidly and he was cleared to play by the opening game of the season.[38] Gavin Baxter injured his shoulder in a practice during September which will likely result in his missing the entire 2019-20 season.[39] It was revealed in November that Jesse Wade has for some time had a knee injury which is likely to prevent him from playing for a long term period.[40]

Italy Trip and Scrimmages[edit]

During August, BYU played four games as part of a trip to Italy. BYU won all four games during the 10-day tour of Italy. Every four years, the NCAA permits college basketball teams to take a trip to a foreign country.[41]

On October 26, just before the regular season began, the team also played a scrimmage against the University of California, Berkeley. While the results and statistics of the scrimmage were not released to the public, Mark Pope indicated that the team played quite well.[46]
