BYU Cougars win 5th straight thanks to six players in double digits – GSF College Basketball 2014

Posted January 19, 2014 by in – Missing two starters would be tough to overcome against any team…but when its against a Conference rival who’s averaging 87.1 points per game, good for 4th best in the NCAA, its nearly insurmountable.
Senior forward John McArthur and senior guard Evan Roquemore did not suit up for the Santa Clara Broncos, leaving the heavy lifting to junior guard Brandon Clark and freshman guard Jared Brownridge.
Both showed they were quite capable as they have all season with Brownridge finishing with a game-high, and career-high 30 points, while Clark contributed with 20 points of his own. However the two scorers had little help in keeping up with the offensive savvy BYU team, as no other Bronco had more than 8 points.
BYU controlled the entire game, spreading the ball around (six players had double-digit points) and forcing SCU to consistently shoot well outside the paint and beyond the arch with its stingy zone defense.
Despite the early foul trouble that limited BYU’s dynamic scorer Tyler Haws (22.6 ppg), the Cougars essentially dominated this WCC match-up in route to its 5th straight win.
