After staying with the same starting lineup for the past 11 games, BYU basketball coach Dave Rose will switch it up tonight as the Cougars play host to Santa Clara at the Marriott Center. Tipoff is at 7 p.m. MST and the game will be televised by BYUtv. Anson Winder will get his first start of the season for the Cougars, at shooting guard, after starting in 15 games last year. Brock Zylstra will still start, but at the four spot (power forward). He will start there instead of Josh Sharp, who has started the last 11 games. In BYU's 63-61 win over Pepperdine on Thursday, Winder sparked the Cougars in the second half, and played 25 minutes. Sharp played just 10 minutes. Winder scored 10 points in 14 minutes three weeks ago when BYU defeated Santa Clara 82-64 in the Leavey Center. Zylstra also played well, scoring 15 points in 23 minutes. BYU's student section sang "Happy Birthday" to Zylstra before the game.
