Utah Jazz Coach Quin Snyder Visits BYU Basketball Practice

BYU Basketball is two months from the start of the college basketball regular season — their regular season opener is November 9 versus Cleveland State — and the team has been practicing in the Marriott Center while the practice facility finishes up renovations.

Utah Jazz Coach Quin Snyder was on BYU campus Tuesday and stopped by BYU’s practice, multiple sources confirmed to me. Quinn Snyder grew up in Mercer Island, Washington, 10 minutes from Newport High School where Mark Pope prepped at in Bellevue, Washington. Snyder graduated from Mercer Island HS in 1985 and Pope graduated HS six years later in 1991, but both coaches share the Seattle area connection.
