BYU guard Alex Barcello dribbles the ball by an Oregon defender.
Senior guard Alex Barcello scored 25 points as BYU men’s basketball dealt No. 12 Oregon a resounding 81–49 defeat in the Phil Knight Invitational, becoming the first unranked team to beat a top-15 team away from home by 30-plus points since 1993. “We’re super excited about the result tonight,” said BYU head coach Mark Pope. “I thought it was a great effort as a group. We’re excited to keep trying to get better.” Fans were also super excited as they lined up in the wee hours to congratulate the conquering Cougars at the Provo Airport.
Viz Muniz, Toy Soldier, from the Monads Series, chromogenic print, 93.1 × 75.5, 2003, Courtesy of the artist.
At first glance this work of art might seem like a joke: a soldier made of toy soldiers? But take a closer look by reading this story and perhaps you’ll discover a deeper meaning about war and division. This playful, thoughtful, approach is typical of Vik Muniz, a contemporary Brazilian artist known for re-creating famous images with unconventional materials, from garbage and sugar to diamonds and caviar. Preview the artwork—including a PB&J Mona Lisa—in this clever BYU Museum of Art exhibition or see it in person before it closes on Nov. 27.
