"It was another good night, and we won again, so that's four in a row. We need to keep it going," Carlino said.
His freshman year, Carlino scored 30 points in BYU's 85-84 win in San Francisco in 2012. Last year, he had 22 points and made some huge plays down the stretch in the Cougars' come-from-behind win.
"I don't think I made a shot in the second half, but in the beginning I was dialed in," he said.
