Although he is leaving the BYU basketball team for a yet-to-be-determined institution, guard Matt Carlino attended the program's annual banquet on Wednesday night at the Nu Skin Innovation Center in downtown Provo and received the Sixth-Man Award.
Not much was said about Carlino's pending departure throughout most of the banquet, but toward the end coach Dave Rose turned toward Carlino and thanked him for his two-and-a-half seasons with the Cougars.
"I wish you the very best, wherever you end up," Rose said. "We will be cheering for you."
Carlino, his head recently shaved, sat next to Rose's nephew, former BYU walk-on Kyle Rose, and strength and conditioning coach Bob Medina at the banquet.<
