BYU falls 64-59 to LMU to snap win streak

What goes up must come down.

BYU’s seven-game win streak was vanquished Thursday night in a 64-59 loss at LMU, handing the Cougars their first WCC setback of the season.

“We were just so limited with our movement on offense, we allowed ourselves to get stuck,” BYU head coach Mark Pope said. “We didn’t beat their physicality with our pace and movement. That was problematic. They got us in isolation a few times and that hurt us.”

BYU shot 15% from three with 13 turnovers against the Lions. Fouss Traore and Gideon George each led the Cougars with 13 points and five rebounds.

The Cougars now head to face San Diego this weekend for a chance at a third conference victory before welcoming Gonzaga to Provo next Thursday.
