After defeating West Virginia 86-73 on Feb. 3, the BYU men’s basketball team attended worship services in Morgantown on Sunday, Feb. 4, before flying to Oklahoma that afternoon to participate in a multi-stake devotional in Norman prior to a matchup with the Oklahoma Sooners on Feb. 6.

Inside a packed Latter-day Saint meetinghouse, the devotional featured remarks from 12 different members of the BYU basketball team, including players, coaches and support staff. Nine players on the Cougars’ 2023-24 roster have served missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“Being all in is the best thing you can do … to show Christ that you can carry out your responsibility. Continue to show faith.
