Thursday, the West Coast Conference released its schedule (BYU put out its nonconference schedule last month) and for the Cougars, it includes a brutal finishing stretch. BYU' s last three league games: at St. Mary's (Feb. 21), Gonzaga (Feb. 28) for senior night, and then at Loyola Marymount (March 2).
