In our continuing effort to look forward to better days, we'll be bringing you one fun fact about the Cougar basketball team each day until the season officially tips off on Nov. 15. Some will be silly, some will be serious, but all will be vital to your knowledge as a Cougar basketball fan.
Did you know ...
... the Cougars' two returning starters, Aron Baynes and Taylor Rochestie, scored the exact same number of points last year -- 365?
Interestingly, Baynes attempted 31 fewer field goals, doing most of his damage inside and at the free throw line. Rochestie did his damage from long range with 53 3-pointers.
