Photo Story — BYU vs. San Francisco


Pregame


First Half

BYU looked to avenge last year’s loss to San Francisco in the quarterfinal of the WCC tournament when the Dons visited the Marriott Center on Feb. 8. This game also marked the return of sophomore forward Gavin Baxter.

BYU lost 83-82 to the Dons on Jan. 25, marking the only game that BYU has lost while Yoeli Childs started and finished the game.

BYU jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, owning a game-high 19-point lead before the end of the half. BYU lead 44-25 heading into the locker rooms. Childs led all scorers, with 14 first-half points, while TJ Haws was close behind with 13 of his own. Jake Toolson dished out a game-high six assists in the first half alone, while Alex Barcello lead with three rebounds.


Second Half

BYU led by as many as 25 before San Francisco started closing the gap on the Cougars, going on multiple six-point runs over a span of 5 minutes. The Dons called a timeout with 3 minutes and 51 seconds remaining and a 10-point differential between the two teams, a differential that would decrease to eight points before BYU pulled away and won the game by a score of 90-76.

Yoeli Childs led all players with a season-high 32 points on 61% shooting. Haws and Toolson both finished with 13-points a piece while also dishing out seven assists each. The Cougars shot 55.6% from the field as a team while draining 48% of their shots from behind the 3-point line.
