PROVO — Winner, winner, Cubby’s dinner.
BYU’s affable men’s basketball coach Mark Pope had another late-night delivery, even after his No. 23 Cougars upset No. 2 Gonzaga 91-78 Saturday night.
The school’s student section, The Roc, shared video of Pope showing up at Cubby’s on Cougar Boulevard following the game to buy free food for the students at the restaurant.
Coach Pope just walked into Cubby’s, slapped his card on the register and said @byuROC eats on me. Unreal human being— Joe Wheat (@joewheat27) February 23, 2020
Food wasn’t just on Pope’s mind, though. Yoeli Childs, who had a double-double with 28 points and 10 rebounds — was thinking something sweet to celebrate the win, per KSL News Radio’s Matthew Baiamonte.
